I had the pleasure of meeting Lee Woodruff in Phoenix a few months ago when she came to town to speak at the Arizona Author Series. A strong, inspirational woman, she shared pieces of her life, how she and her critically wounded husband, ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff, navigated crisis in their marriage.
She left the audience with much to consider that night. Her example of patient love in tough times illuminated marriage as the fragile, often challenging institution that it is. But also, as the one source of strength and true meaning that centers a family.
Most marriages have their bumps in the road. During times of disillusionment, it is important to frame our thinking properly in order to make the best decisions for the long term. Read more about this in Goodhousekeeping.com or in her book Perfectly Imperfect.
