SMALL WORLD...YOUR RELATIONSHIP...PEOPLE CHANGE...BEFORE ITS TOO LATE...LOVE YOUR SPOUSE AND THEN YOUR KIDS

Isn't it weird...the world so big, yet so small, the country so big, yet so small, Texas so big, yet so small, Dallas so big, yet so small, Argyle, ok, not sooo big, but still TOO small, LANTANA, pretty big for a neighborhood, yet REALLY SMALL, Fellowship Church, REALLY big for a church, but again, WAY TOO SMALL...

When you have been in a relationship for a while, you kind of settle in, get comfortable, let loose, live life, deal with everyday life with kids and pretty much lose all focus on the most important things that make a relationship work...

Most of us are totally different people than we were, say, 10 years ago, FOR THE GOOD. I mean people grow up and realize whats important in life and whats not, people get married, have kids, MOVE ON and are really happy with their lives...AND SOME PEOPLE DON'T...

I just hope EVERYONE realizes whats REALLY important in life BEFORE ITS TOO LATE! Sure, going out, having drinks, getting away...all these things are important BUT it's not what's MOST important in life! GOD, YOUR SPOUSE, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR CAREER, YOUR FRIENDS...don't let things get out of order and not realize it until its too late! But most people, including ME, do not realize stuff like this until something happens to MAKE you realize it! This is how ALL BAD THINGS COME TO AN END, WHEN SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS...

This is something I have always had a hard time understanding until recently...your spouse comes before your kids do. I was always like, WHAT, are you kidding me, they are just kids, HE or she is an adult, but I have recently learned how true this is! If you have a good, HAPPY marriage then you have good, HAPPY kids! If you have a mommy and daddy that aren't happy with each other then eventually you are going to have kids that notice this and aren't happy either! Your kids are going to be grown and gone someday but you and your spouse will still be there...MAKE SURE YOU ARE MAKING THAT RELATIONSHIP YOUR SECOND PRIORITY IN LIFE...

Sorry if none of this makes sense to you...I just needed to vent...THANKS!
