A friend of mine is exploring the concept of boundaries and guarding her marriage.
She says no to offers that would take away from family dinners and her weekly special time with her husband, among other things.
I’ve been very encouraged and inspired by her gracious ability to say no. She states what she can and cannot do and then, if possible, suggests other options. She sounds kind and firm when stating her limits and she doesn’t apologize for her boundaries (time with her hubby and family are important to her).
What parts of your relationship with your husband could use more guarding? Do you need to buy a lock for the bedroom door? Cut back on weeknight activities? Set limits on work you bring home? Turn off your phones at dinner time?

Heavenly Special Teas has a great selection of quality teas and many of them make great iced teas for those hot summer days. I’m told the #1041 Lemon Cream white tea (with a 1 tablespoon lemonade concentrate per 1 quart) is pretty amazing. (When you order, please put “Lori Byerly” down as the consultant. Thanks so much.)
