My husband and I wanted to be together. Further, we wanted to be married and beyond that, we wanted to be married in the Catholic church.
It took a number of years to make this happen. Maybe five years? But the fact is we got everything we wanted. We got exactly what we said we wanted, to the letter.
Understanding this, it made me realize there is little room to bitch. How many people can say that they got exactly what they asked for?
I suspect there are quite a few, actually. If you are one of them, do you still complain?
Seeing things in this light has helped me a lot. Sometimes, perspective (Jupiter) really is everything.
