Hittin' the Dance Floor

This morning, on instant messenger, I asked hubby if he was sad today.

Puzzled, he said, "No, I'm not. I'm a happy man."

I said, "Oh I thought you might be." Then I sent him this link.

Me? I don't get it. I mean she's got a huge gap in her teeth. I'm not really of the catty nature but I'm just sayin', you have all the celebrities in the world to have a crush on and this is who you choose?

It's probably because she plays the guitar which is so not me.

Anyway, he's had a crush on her FOR-EV-ER and so his reply was, "NNNOOOOO!"

It was our good chuckle of the day.

But it brings me to my point. I'm sort of in a "let-me-give-you-some-marital-advice" mood. This afternoon we are heading out of town to celebrate my sister's wedding so you can understand why.

This morning I also read a much more wholesome article here. Go ahead and read #3. It's short. I'll wait until you're done.

Ready? OK.

I love the phrase the author writes, "Never leave one good party for another." You all know what I'm talking about right? It's a Friday or Saturday night and you're out on the town. It's 11:00 and while you're having fun, there's a part of you that wonders if there's a better scene next door. You wonder what fun you might be missing out on "over there." And you only have a few more hours until bar close. What do you do?

It's a great analogy to marriage and life in general. It always seems there's so much more possibility of a greener field on the other side. But in letting our minds wonder off like that, we're wasting time having a blast at the party we're currently at.

Marriage isn't always a party but it can be if you leave the window open a little to let the breeze blow it in.

Like the author in the article, our family loves to dance. The wedding is sure to be one party no one will want to leave. But even if it's not, here's to hoping Brian and I won't care and will strive to be the last couple off the dance floor. I have a hunch we'll have some stiff competition.
