Celebrate What Is and not what Isn't

I had a sign hanging in my room when I was a teenager that said "Celebrate what IS and not what ISN'T."  Seeing it day in and day out, it kind of stuck with me.  

What is there to celebrate in your marriage?  Celebrate it!  Don't keep looking for what you don't have; look for what you have, and make the most of it!  

Sometimes it's difficult because you're stuck in a situation, but look at the "up" side of the situation rather than the "down" side.  

Challenge:  Make a list of things to celebrate about your spouse, and celebrate what is and not what isn't.  Go overboard in appreciation.  And put a blindfold on what isn't.
