A generous wife recently emailed me with a great communication idea (thanks, Karen!).
Yesterday I found an interesting article relating to marriage that I shared with [my husband] at bed time. This morning I asked him if he’d pick one of the many articles he reads during the day to share with me tonight.
I emphasized that he didn’t have to think it’d be interesting to me (that’s why he said he doesn’t share more, he figures it’s not worth sharing), just that I wanted to see what was interesting to him. He was optimistically game. I’m hoping we can make this a habit. … this idea of just picking one thing we come across during the day to share with each other at night has lasting potential … [it] opens us up to each others’ view of the world. I’m really excited.
She goes on to share they have become more casual about it than “your turn/my turn.” I love that the exchange of ideas has become more conversational for them.
What a lovely idea and what a great way to see into the world of your spouse.

Visionary Womanhood: A Bazillion Tiny Choices Make a Life Direction I admit I read this post rather impatiently, skimming until I came to the end. When I got there, it just about busted me up. This is one of those posts I need to read each morning. I don’t want small decisions to derail me or take me someplace I don’t want to go in my marriage.
