Where are you going?

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

I could talk philosophy and literature all day and my husband could talk history and politics. Kind of a strange mix at times but 20 years ago we both chose to take the same road together. I wasn't one of those girls who was thrilled at the idea of marriage and was not the easiest person to figure out but my husband bravely stepped up and took me on. I loved the idea of children and home but dreaded the idea of compromise and the intertwining of two families and daily lives. I was wrong. Being married and "intertwined" has made me a much better person. I did have to compromise and I'm all the wiser for it. While it hasn't always been easy - I am truly blessed by those hard times and have been humbled by the power of what is most important in this world. _
