We tend to be a bit jaded these days.  If our daily experience doesn't include a bit of fireworks, or at least a minor thrill of some kind we're disappointed.  Like thrill junkies we take for granted the most astonishing things: a masterpiece called a tulip; the refreshing laughter of children; a smile in the checkout line freely given.  These are things we ought to celebrate.  Just so, our marriage is a one in a billion proposition.  Imagine two people finding each other in the confusion and cacophony of modern life, falling in love, and vowing to stay together through all life's joys and disappointments.  That's a lot like tulips and laughter and smiles, things to celebrate.
