Is the glass half empty or half full?


Here is a morning conversation to give you an idea of how we live:


Steph: "You know...I'm kind of weird. I live a life of fear."


Jake: "Well...It is good to fear God..."


Steph: "Yes, but it's not so much that kind of fear. It's more of a fear where every night before I fall asleep I think, 'I wonder if tonight is the night we're going to get robbed....?"


Jake: *Laughs* "That's funny...every night I go to sleep and think 'I wonder if tomorrow will be the day that I win a million dollars?!"


And that, my friends, is the difference between the husband and me.
He is extremely optimistic, I am extremely pessimistic
and somehow the opposites attract and balance each other out.
Just one more reason that marriage is the best thing that ever happened to this world!

steph i so know what you mean...i have a real fear of one night being kidnapped from my bed never to be seen again...of course Spencer thinks it's ridiculous. But it got so bad steph that i had to sleep with all the lights on but of course spencer wasn't a big fan of that so a month ago i had to get a night light. It's a little mermaid one...i'll have to show you! can't wait for saturday!
