One List, Two Lives, and Twenty Years of Marriage
Remember the Sweet Things LP: One List, Two Lives, and Twenty Years of Marriage
For a quarter century, Greene kept a running rundown of the insightful, clever, touching things that her better half, Marsh, said and did. She kept in touch with them down covertly, then imparted those contemplations to him each Valentine’s Day when he would discover pages from her “Sweet Things List” tucked inside a card.
Hitched and separated at a youthful age, Greene brought up two little kids alone. After another fizzled relationship in her late thirties, she swore she’d never again subject herself or her children to men who treated them inadequately. At that point she met Marsh Greene.
In this wonderful tribute to a man and a marriage, Greene blends choices from her “Sweet Things List” with memories from their years together. Composed with elegance and genuineness, Remember the Sweet Things catches the benevolence, sharing, diversion, and love that characterized the Greenes’ marriage, and urges us to recognize the decency in our own particular lives and connections
