One pearl of advice from my "Mother of Pearl" necklace.

I've shared this pearl of wisdom with numerous people who have shared with me their marriage struggles.

Young Woman Mother with Daughter Girl

Some of the best advice I ever received came from my mother, no surprise there.

One day, as I lamented to my mother the struggles of being a young wife, "he doesn't do this," "he doesn't do that," etc…, she looked me in the eye and said, "Do all you can do to make our marriage work. If it doesn't work, you walk away with a clean conscience."

She's my mother! She's supposed to take my side! But, alas, and to my benefit, that statement made me take a good look at myself.

The result, my husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary July 7!
