Girls Talk - Courage In Love

Thursday, February 10, 2011
Today at Girls Talk we share our stories of being courageous in the name of love. And to tell the truth, this topic has got me stumped. I must admit that being courageous has never really been part of my gene pool. And all for love...what's that? LOL.

Anyway, best I come up with something or I will just ramble on this post....

The most courageous act of love that I have done (and that I can think of) is that at a slightly youngish age (I don't think I wanna mention the figure here), I got married. A life-changing decision. One that could have turned out either way. The risks of the marriage not turning out well were quite high and most of my side of the family were against it.

Suffice it to say that naysayers predicted the union would never last.

So 15 years down the line, here we are, still at it. The marriage has its ups and downs, of course. But every single day that I wake up still next to my man, I feel that I am taking that courageous leap of faith all over again. Hmmm....how far is it still to forever? :-)

This is my share for this week. Join us.

    You know sometimes, the thought of taking a chance where you wont know how it will eventually turn out, is scary, but you still want to take it.

    Thats Faith and that's Love.
    Good luck! :)

    getting married is a BRAVE thing to do. for one, you do not know what you're really getting yourself into and second, what will you do if you don't like what you got yourself into, lol!
