Considering the global pandemic of 2020, over 20 million job losses, social and racial unrest, the disruptions in our educational systems and the workforce, and having to spend more time than ever at home (with the people we say we love) . . . it's a good idea to keep things in perspective. If your relationship goal for 2020 was just to be able to smile at each other every day, and if you were able to achieve your goal congratulations.
If you've been a little more patient with your partner or spouse, you should count that as a success. If you've been able to grant each other a little more grace during this challenging time, that's a victory. If you've been able to laugh a little, and hug one another often, congratulations. During this time I've learned just how important my wife is. I'm also learning not to sweat the small stuff. In the final analysis all I have is God and family.
