Spring, is here?

Spring is poking it's head into our lives and we couldn't be more excited! It's been a COLD winter and we are all ready to get outside and enjoy family time outside of the house. Sunday we got a little sneak peek and it was awesome! Courtney and I busted out the sidewalk paint (super cool stuff that dries into sidewalk chalk). We made some letters and some flowers and a heart or two...apparently that bored my sweet baby as she took the paint brush and began painting her hands. She made LOTS of hand prints all over the driveway...then, off to the feet! Oh she is precious...stepping ans squishing her feet into this paint with such joy. Hopping and dancing and spinning little Courtney foot prints all over the driveway. Daddy even grabbed the camera for the rare shot of me and Courtney together. LOVE these pics. She is so precious.

Is The Grass Greener...

oringinally posted by Cindy Beall

I've rented two movies over the last week or so. We were fairly disappointed because both of them included infidelity. And it's not just because we hate infidelity (which we do) and hate how it ruins marriages (which it has). We hate how it is glamorized by film makers.

Very sad.

I've always been disturbed when I hear someone say about his/her spouse, "I'm just not in love anymore." Since when is mariage always a feel good thing? Ask anyone who has been married if they live in a fairy tale world where they always feel in love. Feelings are so incredibly misleading.

You know what I think? (This is where you say, "yes".) I think that we are in love with what we pour into and what we concentrate on and what we create. If you start to pay attention to the next looker who walks by, you'll be doing that for the rest of your life. Hear me...There will always be good lookin' poeple around you. Period. Get used to it and walk away. If you wanna be in love with your spouse, pour into him, concentrate on her and create new memories and habits that will bring joy for years to come.

Moral of the story? If you find yourself thinking the grass is greenre on the other side, don't move. Just water your own yard.

I'm just sayin'.
