You're My best Friend
You're My Best Friend- I am the last person who should be giving relationship advice. After all, 9 times out of 10, I'm throwing stuff at his head....I don't mean to miss....If you have someone in your life, that's worth keeping, you're gonna have to work past the plateau's, the flatlines, the dips and throw a few bowls at his head, because being with anybody for any length of time, is going to become stale.
In this house, we pee with the door open. Don't Judge Me, a closed door is an open invitation for a toddler to bang, and bang, and bang until you finally give in and open the door anyway. Our lack of modestly makes it very uncomfortable for visitors. We're not savages, it's just that in the end, the toddler gets her way, and the door opens. Feel me? Why not just start with an open door policy? That way, when the trials come, there's a sense of TRUST already in place. Trust dictates that no matter how or what we feel, we can be OPEN about our insecurities. Trust me on this, when you take away the insecurity of looking vulnerable you can REALLY talk to your partner...try new things....Fear is not from the Lord....always remember that.

We once tried a relationship exercise in which we were to begin our sentences with, "I feel". It's a lot like telling your child they have the right to express their feelings of injustice. When you open that can, everything becomes unjust. Being proverbial smart a**es anyway, every sentence that came out of our mouth was, "I feel like you're an idiot", or "I feel like I want to insult your manhood". Having fun is the glue that holds it all together. He is my best friend, and worse enemy, the mystery is determining which one he is, at any given time. The same passion that compels me to throw objects at his head (I don't mean to miss) is the same passion I have when we make up....So, be open, be honest, but be willing to play. Do that, and you have a good foundation. The tremors will come...the earth will shake....I'd rather face the trials with him, than to have a life of Peace alone.....Okay, that's enough. Duchess is eating, and I gotta go....I may have my first 5 minutes of Peace of the day....Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Sunday.
