So... the grass might be green, but not necessarily greener

Since I've been married, I've heard a lot of newlyweds talk about what seems to discourage them the most is how they perceive other marriages to be so great, so harmonious or so happy all the time -- A big laughter rose up inside me just writing that, because the key word is PERCEIVE -- Our minds play tricks on us and if we just take a moment to really look consciously at what we're doing when we think like that, we'll see that we're simply looking for fuel to add to our fires --

You know the old saying "the grass is always greener..." well, your mother wasn't lying -- What you don't know about that yard that looks so green is they've put a lot of hard work into it so it looks like that -- They've tilled the ground, leveled it out, waited for the rain to come pouring down so it settles and then they added more dirt and leveled it again and then it rained again... then they seeded it and waited through the fall and winter and finally, their spring has come and the fruit of all their hard work is finally showing -- So... here you come along in the Spring, move in next door and all you see is the green grass!

Your grass will look like theirs, too... but for now, maybe you're working on your bathroom or kitchen... the unseen areas of relationships -- Be confident that you are exactly where you belong and know that your next door neighbors are thinking exactly the same thing about you... because the grass always seems greener on the other side --
