You know those wedding vows, “for better or for worse, in sickness and in health…” Well I am living it out now. It’s been twelve days since I twisted my left knee. I was standing in the back of my husbands truck bed as he was putting on a window decal. When we were done, I was going to get down by sitting down on the tail gate and gracefully hop off. Instead I made the bad choice to jump right off, like a ninja.
The pain was so bad I almost passed out. Since then my mode of transportation has been hopping on my good leg, crutches, and a wheel chair. My normal routine has come to complete stop. And that’s where my husband comes in and his unconditional love.
After working eight hours all day, he comes home and makes dinner, cleans, pays bills, does laundry, and whatever else needs to be done. He helps me get into the shower, dress, etc. “for better or for worse, in sickness and in health..”
Yesterday I made him dinner. It wasn’t easy, but I got it done! My victory and on my way to complete healing!
Those wedding vows speak volumes when they become a reality. Marriage is not to be taken lightly. It takes work, sacrifice, and unconditional love.
