Awhile back I posted an idea that I swiped from my husband (Go for 21!). The gist of the challenge ~
For the next twenty-one days, write down three good things about your husband and or your marriage.
I saw on the comments that one gal and her husband did this together and were able to do 21 days straight (yeah Valerie and husband!).
(I confess I started it and about a week later I forgot about it. But there is no time limit (girl’s rules) so I’ll just pick up today where I left off.)
Valerie also suggested a creative idea.
The other thing I did was to keep them all (his to me & mine to him) as we did them via text. I hope to compile them and do some scrapbook pages, maybe a mini book or something and give it [to him] as a reminder.
I love it!
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary. Margaret Cousins

A lovely perspective ~ Do You Embrace Being Called Your Husband’s Wife? by Julie (of Intimacy in Marriage)
Jenny (of Journey to Surrender) has written an encouraging article about caring for the stressed care giver ~ A Haven in Your Home I really identified with what she wrote because my husband and I cared for his mom for 9 months.
