water your grass


It is Friday. Our day to think about and celebrate love. Lucky me 3 years ago this week I had the pleasure of marrying/ handfasting the man of my dreams. Even though Hubby is  not a witch or pagan or anything really other then “ex bible thumped” (his term) we did do a handfasting. It was important to me and so it was done.  We were married by a dear friend who happens to be ordained, and is a member of my coven. Our wedding was beautiful and just right for us. It was more then a wedding though. It was the official start of our partnership and our marriage.

Sure Sure that is what all weddings are supposed to be. Only I have seen one to many movie end with they got married and lived happily ever after. Or people who are so focused on the perfect day that the long term commitment gets overlooked and they end up separating 3 weeks later.  Okay maybe only “famous people” do the 3 week marriage but you know what I mean. I’m lucky, I love my husband madly. Sure there are days where we have to work at our partnership a little more, but that is part of the deal.Living happily ever after does not mean you spend each day in pure joy and happiness.

There is a saying flying around the net right now that goes “You may think the grass is greener on the other side. But if you take the time to water your own grass, it would be just as green”  You don’t sign up for all sunshine and roses. Life just doesn’t work that way. There are days of rain too. Sometimes those rainy days are what you need to water your grass though. On those rainy days (and all other days, but especially those days) you get to choose. Do I do something that feeds this love, this partnership? Or do I put my energy in to something that hurts it.

Today lets take some time to water our grass so to speak. Tell the ones you love that you love them. Listen to them talk. Smile at them. Have a wonderful day 🙂

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
