Is the grass greener?



Life is not always easy!!!! It seems like as soon as I decide to settle for the way my life is- something happens to make me realize that I need to do something to make things better. I read a quote the other day that said "The grass is not greener on the other side of the fence-it's greener where you water it." That really made me stop and think. When we get frustrated with life the way it is and feel like we have just had enough maybe we just need to "water the grass". It's easy to blame others for our misery but if we truly want to be happy we need to spend our time serving and showing love to those around us. I'm so far from perfect and I don't always do or say things the way I should. I'm extremely emotional and passionate and I tend to say what I am thinking- even when I shouldn't. I need to work on that. It's not easy for me! I look at people that think life will be better if they get out of the relationships they are in and it makes me sad! How many families are torn apart because of selfishness? I love this new theory of the "grass is greener where you water it"! Guess it is time to get out the hose and start working on that! :)

I love the quote you mentioned and really, it has so much truth to it. Thank you for the gentle reminder.

We have alot in common...I've been married for as long as you have (longer actually), I have 2 grown children (23 and soon to be 20), and my daughter is attending ASU!

How hot is it in AZ these days? It was 111 degrees here yesterday!
Take care and hope to talk to you soon.
