Your Marriage Garden

July 30, 2013

in the generous life

Seth Godin had a great post that reminded me that our marriages are rather like gardens.

To keep your garden healthy and productive you have to tend it over time. You water and weed. You divide plants and gather fruit. You mulch and get rid of pests. It’s an ongoing act of service.

The same is true for marriage. A hug here. A helping hand there. His favorite cookies. Making love in the afternoon. Conversation over dinner. It’s the ongoing little bits of connection and care that make your marriage strong and healthy.

Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.  H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
