I have a friend with like a bazillion kids. Really.
She's made a New Year's resolution to write one encouraging card or note a month. It's simple and doable (even with a bazillion kids).
I had to ask myself, would it be so hard to do that for my husband? Imagine getting a small encouraging note in your lunch box, a sticky note on the bathroom mirror or a love letter on your pillow. I think that would be a great encouragement for him and a reminder to me of what a gift he is to me.
My friend puts me to shame and I only have one "kid" to contend with (the picture is of my grown son holding my furry kid "Widget", 72 pounds and still growing, the dog not the son).

Months ago I recommended Cue Cards for Life by Christina Steinorth (it was available as a pre-order). It's a collection of simple, but powerful guidelines for communication. The book is now available in print and it's a goodie.
Intimacy in Marriage: "Wish You Could Speak to My Wife Before I Leave" A very, very serious wake up call!
To Love, Honor and Vacuum: Use What You Have! Saving Money in January I'm doing more de-junking and taking a "use it, use it up or get rid of it" attitude. Nice ideas.
