Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, and about that falling in and out of love stuff. You don’t know how many times I’ve had people in my courtroom who have told me their marriage is over because they’re no longer in love. I want to ask them, “What does that have to do with anything? Your marriage is over because you don’t feel in love any more?” If it’s just a matter of feeling like you’re not in love any more, they would be better off taking Chesterton’s advice about what he would do if he ever felt doubts about his faith: Lie down until the feeling goes away.

I like to go lie down a lot. But I call them naps.

Tim
