I try really hard not to be judgmental about other people’s lives, or their parenting, or their marriages. That doesn’t mean I am successful, but just that I know in my heart that every one has their own issues/stories/needs/compromises. We’re all just doing the best we can, y’ know? Sometimes it’s lousy, sometimes it’s inspired, and sometimes it’s good enough for the moment. So while I am (more than) a little embarrassed that I even know that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were only married for 72 days, and I have a few snarky things to say about people who still believe gays are the ones who will ruin the institution of marriage, I think I’d rather share this photo instead.
It’s a journey and a climb. And easier when taken those you love and trust. Even when it’s hard. Especially when it’s hard.
Oh, and by “those” I mean a lifelong companion…which leaves it pretty open, but the key concept is lifelong.
