Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate. ~ Barnett R. Brickner
What is marriage?
Well, it's kind of like taking a blender. First you add a huge dose of love. Then you add to that another good helping of patience. Then a cup or two...or ten, depending on the situation...of communication. Those are the basic ingredients. You push the button and whirl those around a bit, open the lid, and check it out. Now it's time to add some spices. Not too much, not too little...enough to make it just right. You sprinkle it with tear drops, but only enough of those to help share the heartaches that come along. Oh, and laughter...don't forget the laughter!!! That will see you thru anything and help lift the load when the burdens of life get to be too heavy. Then add a healthy portion of respect. Another push of the button and then pour it out and store it in a safe place. And when you're feeling dry and a little thirsty, take a drink from it and refresh yourselves.
