I read a lovely article by Susan at MomLifeToday.com – Fun in Marriage? (do take the time to read her post) and I couldn’t agree more. We need laughter and fun in our marriage.
She suggests making a couple of dates on your calendar to do something fun with your sweetie. The holiday season is full of stresses. Laughter is just what you need. Look for something fun like a comedy movie (if funds are tight watch a DVD at home (free at the library) instead of in the theaters). Snuggle up in bed and read to each other (a funny book or comics from a newspaper). Do something light-hearted like have a snowball fight (we just had first snow where I live).

Four Disciplines of the Heart from Michael Hyatt. Yes, I know it was written to leaders, but it applies to all. We all need to refresh and nurture ourselves.
