Falling softly, quietly as a gentle whisper. Tiny, gradually grand frozen stars floating to and fro on air to earth. A soft blanket a gift for the flora and fauna. Pristine beauty pleasing to the eye. Calming refreshment for a once brown and dying landscape. A cheery, brightness added to the outlook of winter. A smile. "Let's go make a snowman." a grown man cheers, breaking the morning silence.
To me this is what marriage is like. It can make life cheerful. Relaxing adding brightness to a once dull life. But it can also be the brown and dying landscape at times. We just have to be prepared to grab our gear and become prepared to make a snowman.
There are many things about married life that are really enjoyable. Companionship, love, support, and even friendship. Marriage has it's down sides as well. Someone to answer to, arguments, money, and religion to name a few. But with shared teamwork it can be fabulous. Anything fabulous is worth working for or earning. Think about all of he things you love. Do they come easy or did you have to work for them?
I feel that every day is a great day for change for the better in a marriage just as a brown landscape is a great time for a snowfall.
