Loved this piece.

Yes, I don’t think our divorce rates would be quite so high if we all took to heart that it’s more important to be nice than right.

There were moments when I was married that required every ounce of my will to hold my tongue. To smile and stay pleasant.

I’m glad I did, though. Never did I dream our marriage would be cut short by cancer and I’d be on my own again.

Every single time either of us sacrificed for the sake of keeping the peace, I now see as precious. Life is short. Loving each other, a blessing.
