Life is so full of disappointment. I am just wondering why we even try. The only thing I’m sure of is Christ and his mercy. Nothing else seems to be concrete.
It’s amazing to see what two people can and cannot accomplish besides just one person. For instance — I was trying to zip up my new combat boots and I was becoming very disheartened with the fact they wouldn’t zip and that I just had massive calves. I was wrestling with this fact and wondering who in the world could zip these up because I have average sized calves… So I thought. Then as I’m struggling and telling my boyfriend he says to me “why don’t you zip them first then lace them up…” Sure enough, they zipped right up and fit wonderfully! Many other occurrences have taken place, similar to this one and mainly with the boyfriend. I thank God everyday for his creation of man and woman coming together because it was clearly meant for these types of situations.
On the other hand, doing things with the best friend produce the opposite outcome. This is usually with simple math problems — we sit at places for hours (exaggerated) just to figure out the tip for a $25 meal. I feel like this happens because we are both females and our brains are so similar (hence the best friendship) that we cannot overcome these simple problems we are faced everyday.
THEN there is the sister-sister relationship. Better yet my twin sister relationship. Where I will struggle then she will, very annoyed, walk right over to me and in one swoop fix or overcome anything. Then she mumbles underneath her breath, which is still pretty audible, various insults of my intelligence. In turn I sit and smile, giggle and kindly say thank you waiting for the next moment for me to need her help. There have been times where it was a reverse situation but typically this is how it goes.
Humans were meant to be around other humans and to work off each other, accomplishing situations together. This was a part of God’s creation and personally I am extremely thankful for this.
