Valentines Day and Heart Attacks

Did you have a nice Valentine's Day yesterday? My husband and I celebrated our 32nd together...31 of them as a married couple. People say that's an accomplishment, I say it's a commitment that we made to one another to enjoy the good times together, and work through the challenging ones, and we've had our share of those. We take our vows before God seriously, if we didn't, I can honestly say I'm not sure where we'd be. I can tell you that if you don't work through the challenges, in many cases you may be missing out on the miracle of a stronger relationship on the other side of the challenge. A healthy marriage relationship is better for us in some ways than food.

Most of you know that my husband has had a heart attack, and ongoing heart issues, we did have another scare last month that put us in the emergency room for a night, but he is doing well. This is National Heart month, not surprising that they would call it that since it is also the month of Valentine's Day when everyone is looking at heart cards and decorations. How are you doing with looking after your heart? Here are some posts from the past related to the heart:

Take care of your heart, and the one you love, "for better or worse, richer or poorer, 'till death do us part".
