I don’t want a just a memory
Gives me forever
Don’t even think about saying good-bye
Cuz I want just one love to be enough
And remain in my heart till i die- Renae Olsterad “A Love That Will Last”
My Lifetime Spousal Companion Lil and I recently returned from a trip abroad that found us sharing a coach with a couple of dozen other travelers. We were one of three couples celebrating their anniversaries including a 50th (ours), a 35th, and a 20th as well as a pair of newlyweds who were just embarking on the wondrous journey of marriage. 4 couples in vastly different stages of their relationship and yet each celebrating the day they decided to say “I do.”
There was a rather enjoyable symmetry to it all.
Marriage is such a cool thing when it works. Growing together and displaying an elevated regard for one another allows the relationship to be nourished in a positive manner. As a result the marriage doesn’t merely survive, it thrives.
Here are the most recent couples who have signed on for their own journey.
Tabitha Buck, Fremont & Dean Robeck, Newaygo
Mary Rake, White Cloud & Brian Royston Sr. Wyoming, MI
Ron Wawsczyk, White Cloud & Shelley Barton, Newaygo
Felicity Faye Schlink, Newaygo & Brian Allen Crooks, Newaygo
