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!

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.
