My mom told me a story a short while later that made me love Marlene even more. One day, she went up to her kind husband and said, "I'm going to give each of us a piece of paper, and we're both going to write down what we don't like about each other." They both sat at the table and started making lists. Once they showed each other the lists, she was astounded. While Marlene's read a long list of things that peeved her about her husband, Rod's paper had three words written over and over and over again.
I hope we can all look for the good in each other and the good in our lives, with a twinkle in our eye.
