Thanks for the thoughts. Exactly on marriage, fix it and love each other unconditionally. Just like anything else, it takes work to build a marriage and keep it going strong. Respect has alot to do with it as well.
Love this pic. Isn't that the truth. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to one another.

Imagine what our world would be like if more people would fix what is broken instead of throwing it away!

I was married before, and we were Christians, although each of us come from a tough background. After about 15 years, it was necessary to have a divorce for safety for my kids and myself.

A year later, my husband was dropped into my life and he's practically perfect. In our 27 years, rarely any difficulty. He's very godly and a real servant of the Lord and loves me... and was a very good step-father and he's a very good grandpa.

I agree that marriage should be forever. Struggled with the thought of divorcing, but sometimes ain't no choice when others need to be protected.

I ain't leaving my dear one until one of us goes to heaven. Filled with joy for all these years.
I totally agree that sometimes one has to end their marriage. My parents were so toxic together but after their divorce they became great friends. Even when he was on his death bed he wanted her by his side.
I'm glad my husband did give up on me while I was fighting my demons for so many years.
Our marriage is so good these last 3 years. And we wouldn't have known that if we had split up during the bad ones.

Marcus and I first came across fry bread while living in Maine. There it's called fried dough. It's typically served at fairs.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
