Marriage Brimming


To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.

Hey GZ, because you came to my place, I found yours, I've read & seen everything back down through the top page and I love this place! Refreshing, vital, stimulating...and even a quote of Maslow!
We're still giggling, even though we separated 9 years ago. Maybe that's why we can still giggle...Do come back again, like I will here. My unsighted shot prevented the viewer from seeing why the guy is in a wheelchair, which I was grateful for. Perhaps that would have been the only crop I'd have made to it. We are gonna keep looking for ways of seeing it for a while, but I'm keeping in the background now, while it kicks in.

Welcome MS and Idham. I'm happy you found something to 'chew' on ; )

Mile S- it's refreshing to know you can still giggle with your partner after 9 years of separation....no need to keep enemies. Do visit again and I look forward seeing what you're up too.

~Peace

Yes, I'm giggling too, Getzapped.
This was fun.

This is clearly about having humility even (or rather especially) with people whom we love dearly. It tells us that we take no one for granted. Everything involves effort.

getzapped said...

Ruby, you express this perfectly. And I'd have to add, it's a harder practice (speaking for myself) to do with those we love more dearly, since we get caught up in their idiosyncrasies (and ours) and feel the need to "win" more often.

humm...bet you've heard this one...

there was a young couple named kelly
who were forced to go belly to belly
because in their haste
they used library paste
instead of patroleum jelly :-)
