31 Days to a Great Marriage: Sharon’s 31 Days Blog

Hi everyone,

Nesting Place held its “31 Days” challenge, and my contribution was ” 31 Days to a Great Marriage ,” and I’d like to share it with all of our WOMANTalk girlfriends.

After many years of marriage my husband, Duane and I, have learned a few things about what can not only make marriage a life-long blessing, but help a husband and wife get through some of the greatest challenges, greatest adventures, greatest heartaches, and just plain life experiences we all go through, and have them work together for good. This has been the case for us, and I’d love to share some of them with you.

So, let’s begin today with…

DAY 1: TO A GREAT MARRIAGE – Start at the Beginning & Make a List

No, not a list of what needs to change – but a list of (31) wonderful things about your husband that made you fall in love with him in the first place.

And then, beginning today, and every day this month, tell him one of them from your list (either text it, call him, write a note and leave it where he drops his keys when he gets home from work, etc….be creative).

It might sound or read something like this…

Honey, just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you and how much I appreciate_____________________about you. I’m so glad we got married ___ years ago! xoxox Love, Me

No matter where your marriage is now on the scale of ‘great,’ this will not only remind you why you fell in love with your husband; but it will be a balm to his day. Who doesn’t feel better after hearing that they are appreciated and loved? It will jog his own memories, and start you both on the path to remembering why you chose to go through life together, and recapturing afresh that first love.

Who knows where this, and the next 30 days, will lead. For sure, it will be good.
