This week has been a total blur/bust/drag, and my mind is like mush, but so what? It’s still a beautiful day, and I’ll tell you why: Five years ago today, I made one of the best and easiest decisions of my whole life when I said “I do” to one Mr. Kevin Cooper. We have more fun than I ever would have believed possible, and he makes me laugh every single day, even on the ones where he has also made me crazy-mad. (He knew about the short fuse when he married me, folks. Caveat emptor.)
We had a book passed around during our wedding reception, and asked guests to write advice or well-wishes or whatever, and you would not believe how many people wrote something along the lines of “Don’t forget to laugh together.” I thought people just couldn’t think of anything original, but it turns out that it’s darn good and important advice. Another chestnut: Feed the bear before hitting him with bad news. That’s a really good one . . . and I’m working on implementing it.
