A Thought on Married Life
Married life is good. Let me tell you, I never thought I would enjoy spending time with my wife as much as I do. I enjoy her company.
Simple things are what make life pleasant. Things like seeing her for lunch almost every day of the week. We enjoy most of the same tv shows (she's not a Mavericks or Cowboys fan, for which I forgive her). She willingly and bravely suffers my movie addiction. I suffer her need to save money rather than spend (not so much a virtue on my part).
I'm not looking at the big picture right now. Honestly, the big picture seems to fluctuate so often, I'd rather live day to day. We don't avoid planning or setting goals, we just keep a few extras close to hand because we know our tastes and preferences change over time.
God has blessed our marriage. I am blessed to be in covenant relationship with a beautiful woman who is ever increasing in playfulness and sense of humor. She's better at several important things than I am, which makes her a valuable part of our family team.
She's pulling up in the driveway for lunch. Life is good.
