This is a week of anniversaries for Keith and me: birth, death and wedding. We celebrate our 5th today with thoughts of how far we’ve come in partnership. Signs of success are easy to see: a house renovated and mountain house nearing completion, job changes with exciting new challenges, children following their paths and a shelter dog joining our pack. Not all has been easy and smooth, of course. There were significant hurtles as we learned how to leverage our differences effectively. What makes our marriage work? A deep abiding love and assurance that, although we could live alone, we were meant to be together; a division of labor with shared goals and values; a curiosity about life, gratitude for what we have and trust in God.
