"Mom, I'm Fat" & "You Never Marry the Right Person"

A couple of really great articles that I came across this afternoon.
Mom, I'm Fat: http://huff.to/ycgdex
I can only pray that I would have the courage and the wisdom to respond as this mom did.
You Never Marry the Right Person: http://bit.ly/wmVy20
And all I can say is this is so very true. Love/Marriage is not about simply accepting someone as they are, but wanting to learn and grow *with* that person. It takes work, and you have to want to do the work.
