The Secret to Dealing With A Fork in the Road in Your Marriage - Sheri & Bob Stitof

What a pleasant way to start the New Year off. When I check my Inbox this morning, I saw a link from About, to this lovely article, The Secret to Dealing with a Fork in the Raod in Your Marriage by Sheri & Bob Stitof.

I love that after 14 years of marriage, 16 year old teenager and 21 years of friendship and courting I respect those forks in the road. Charles and I have had many in the years, they've made our relationship stronger and times of reflection.
