immensely happy

i came across this quote today:

“Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy.” 

 i realized my husband is everything on that list [ and more ] and it was a great reminder to 'not sweat the small stuff'. he's not perfect...we're not perfect...but we work well with each other, we appreciate one another's strengths, we forgive each others weaknesses, and we [ truly love ] the other. it seems more and more these days i hear or see people marrying for the wrong reason, spouses not being completely loyal, or marriages falling apart -even temple marriages. this is a quote i'll definitely be sharing with my future daughters because i believe who we marry determines much of our happiness. anyways, there's my two-cents for the day. time to get back to my boys. my little Niko just woke up from his nap.

 happy with what i have.
