Books Are Friends
I love books. My dad was an English teacher for a number of years and he gave me a love of literature and learning.
I am so grateful for that gift. Books open up a world of information and adventure. They are great mental stimulation and make your conversations more interesting. Over the years I have collected hundreds of books (that were given away when we became RVers). Now my Kindle houses my growing collection of books.
I mentioned previously, I’m reading a marriage book a month as one of my 2018 personal goals. It’s been good for me. I’ve learned a few things and every day or two I read something that encourages me to grow my marriage. Right now I am practicing kindness and I’m trying to be more aware of and respond to my husband’s bids (this comes from Gottman’s book The Relationship Cure).
I encourage y’all to read marriage books as well, perhaps even create your own marriage library. Marriage books are like good friends who give you great marriage advice.
