In Sickness and Health

This post contains affiliate links.

Our online church service on Sunday was about marriage.  At the end of the service our pastor had all the married couples renew their vows.  At first I thought it was a little corny but then I started listening to what we were saying.  I was reminded of how much I love Dan and how much he loves me.  I especially thought of the in sickness and health part.  We have been married almost five years but we have already been through so much together. 

I had a very painful ovarian cyst on our honeymoon.  We spent the last couple days of our honeymoon at the emergency room in Maui.  I was definitely a honeymoon to remember.  I also had to have surgery for a different ovarian cyst a couple months after we were married.  The first two months of our marriage were scary but they helped us grow together as a couple.  Dan was (and still is) amazing at taking care of me. 

He was also very amazing at taking care of M.J. and me while I was in the partial hospitalization program.  I felt like a horrible housewife because I didn’t have any energy to do the cleaning I normally do.  Dan reminded me that marriage isn’t 50/50, it is 100/100.  There will be times in our marriage when one person is not able to give it their all and the other person will have to help.  I am so glad God has blessed me with such a wonderful husband.

“…for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part…”
