Finally in Arizona

Well we finally made it to Arizona.  It has been a long and painful two year process.  The saga continues full of lumps and bumps along the way.  I am exhausted physically and emotionally.  I am going to have to have a serious bloggy hiatus to concentrate on this household move, my mother, my new job and find another part time job.

This certainly isn't what I expected, but I guess life never is what you expect.

Here's to the future, hoping it is full of creations, and family times and happy memories.  I'll start back up when things are a little better around here.... I've got some fun things rolling round my brain to blog about.

Marriage, from Paul Newman


Paul Newman's letter to his wife, Joanne Woodward, on their wedding day:

“ Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created.
In the Art of Marriage, the little things are the big things.
*It is never being too old to hold hands.
*It is remembering to say ‘I love you’ at least once a day.
*It is never going to sleep angry.
*It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon; it should continue through all the years.
*It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
*It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
*It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
*It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
*It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have the wings of an angel.
*It is not looking for perfection in each other.
*It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
*It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
*It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
*It is finding rooms for things of the spirit.
*It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
*It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and obligation is reciprocal.
 It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner."
