Why is happiness so hard to find? I like to think it is because we never take the time to appreciate what is right in front of us or maybe it is as simple as not counting our blessings. It is no secret that David and I are a “poor couple.” We have to stretch every dollar and at times go to food banks. There is no shame in that. We work hard and we budget well but sometimes people hit rough patches and things come up. As hard as things can be it is so nice when are able to go on mostly free dates. A couple weeks ago we were given free movie tickets and we were able to see Jurassic World and a coworker of mine gave us free tickets to see a Charleston Riverdogs game tonight. When you are married dating is super important because work weeks can be so hectic and finding time to connect and remind yourselves as to why you feel in love in the first place is what keeps a marriage together. So tonight I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my blessings.
