I can not put into words exactly how much I love and live by this quote in my own marriage. It is pretty powerful and with all of the people who post questions about their relationships I'd like to share this. 

The grass always looks greener on the other side. Do we ever stop to think why? Maybe it's because we neglect our own grass...sometimes we stop watering it and it dries out, sometimes we let some weeds grow instead of pulling them out and sometimes we fail to recognize that new seeds need to be planted where the grass has become bare. In order for something to stay in bloom you have to nurture it, no matter what side of the fence you're on.”- Joy Maniscalco

  • That quote the whole time I was thinking about it I was thinking about me and my DH situation and relationship. I want to thank you very much for sharing that and reminding me that we can make this work, and that we do love each other. Thank you.
