Rob helped me find a great quote from a movie, Shall We Dance. James and I recently watched this little film and enjoyed it. I think this quote is a great description of marriage, but I also think it helps define all of our relationships. I believe Karen has mentioned it on this blog, too. Thanks for being my witness!
We need a witness to our lives. Thereâ€™s a billion people on the planetâ€¦ I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, youâ€™re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane thingsâ€¦ all of it, all of the time, every day. Youâ€™re saying â€˜Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witnessâ€™.â€
