Encouragement for you in the middle of your marriage / A Message From Sarah 

From Sarah :  Danny and I are definitely in the middle of our marriage.

For me: 

Remembering how awesome it was between us those years of dating. Phone calls and texts almost 24/7 /365 days a year. We never ever missed a day. We never missed saying good night. ..usually more than once.

Danny And I with my parents and my sister….. After Bobby Died. Colorado

My morning calls waking Danny up at 5:45 AM his time. FLORIDA TIME.  It was 3:45 AM COLORADO TIME. 

Texts throughout the day. Sneaking in phone calls. Talking For Hours Every Night. 

Never missing a day.

Letters written daily from me.  

Letters written at least once a week from Danny.

Postcards sent back and forth.

Yes I remember .

The months after Bobby died.

Moving To Florida. 

Finally Getting Married.

5 wonderful years in the RV.

Living at the park. 

Life Living And Working At Lake Kissimmee State Park. 

Then Finally Moving Into The Cracker House. ….
Life Became Messy. 

Not sure what Danny remembers or what he really thinks. 

From The Post : 

Encourage Your Spouse : During The Middle Years

We’re moving into the season of flowering trees and bushes, of daffodils and tulips with buds and green shoots poking their heads up out of the ground. (We’re ignorning the sneezes from allergies to look at the beauty!)
How’s your relationship with your spouse? What season is your marriage in – is it a springtime where everything is new again, and beauty is surrounding your interactions? We’re guessing not all of you wil be nodding… 


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

    1. Hi Sheridan….. it is always good to hear from you . Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Life is still crazy busy here at the park. Or it’s Internet issues and I can’t do much of anything.
      I watched my parents and always wanted what they had.
      Never coming close in mine.
      It’s hard following a couple who really were ONE. Each one was / is strong on their own. Together they were invincible. Really one. I still can’t think of one without the other.
      Danny and I aren’t fighting as much as we were. He isn’t drinking nearly as much and I have learned ( better any way)not to be such a demanding person. That’s not how I wanted to describe it but I can’t think of a better phrase or word except the “B” one.
      So why we aren’t fighting or saying things we shouldn’t. …neither are we connecting like we need to. Like I need us to.
      Hugs my friend. Have a wonderful weekend. Love Sarah.

    2. Sheridan, I apologise For not answering sooner. …. a combination of internet and WordPress issues.
      Our marriage …. not sure what to say….it’s been rocky and I’m about ready to jump.
      Not quite true… I don’t give up. Just not sure how to go on.
      Hugs my friend.
