This is my last post.  I have mixed feelings about closing.  Focusing on what I love about being married has made me a happier person and wife.  I’ve enjoyed the family and dialog of marriage bloggers.  I set out to write a finite blog: 365 things I love about marriage.  Now finding myself at the end I’m sticking to the plan.

I asked my husband what I should do for the last post and he suggested sharing some of the things I learned.  As usual, he is a smart man. 🙂

THINGS I LEARNED

1. Marriage is truly wonderful.

2. I really love my husband.

3. It’s hard to say goodbye.

4. I like blogging.

5. It sometimes takes 2 years to do a 365 blog!

6. I’m thankful for all your comments and support.

7. It feels good to keep a commitment whether it is marriage or blogging.

8. Lots of folks love marriage like I do.

9.  Blogs take a lot of time.

THINGS MY HUSBAND LEARNED

1. He should keep his mouth shut.

2. Things he says will end up on my blog and he won’t get any credit for it. 🙂

#363: Movie Mondays – Love Comes Softly

Cover of "Love Comes Softly"

Cover of Love Comes Softly

Year: 2003

Genre: Romance/Western/Drama

Description from www.IMDb.com: A young woman on her way to a new life in the 1800’s suddenly finds herself a widow. Now she must live with a recently widowed young man and his daughter. Can any of them find love again? 

Wife: For our last movie review, I wanted to choose a movie about marriage.  Husband suggested War of the Roses.  Really?  A cynical movie about divorce?  I don’t think so.  Instead, he agreed to review Love Comes Softly.  Directed by Michael Landon, Jr., this is one of my favorite movies.  I have secretly wanted to own the entire series and I am not a movie collector.  What do I love about it?  It is clean, engaging, sweet, and faith-based.  And, it’s a love story!  Kathryn Heigl is excellent as usual. My husband teases me about this movie.  He calls it “Love dies a slow and agonizing death.”  Yes, he is both cynical and funny. 

Husband: I liked the storyline.  The male lead was a good man.  He was God-fearing and had the correct priorities.  He was patient and he waited.  There were no explosions so I only gave it a 5.  

Husband-Wife Compatibility: 7.5 (Wife gave it a 10)
