What Makes Our Marriage Work – do some work together

This may not be a good tip for everyone, but sometimes rolling up our sleeves and doing some hard work together is just what the doctor ordered for our relationship.  Sure it can be tiring and can sometimes make you a little short with each other, but it also forces you to work together and communicate and in the end you can see what a great accomplishment you have made.


This weekend Kenny and I have tackled some front and back yard clean up and organization.  We pruned back bushes, bundled the branches, removed a large tree and two large bushes and just did some general tidying.  It was hard work but it was fun just being together.  My Mom and Dad came over and helped with the yard and my Mom even watched baby M so I could spend some more time helping Kenny with the big tree.

By the end of the day we were both tired and sore and dirty but we also felt reconnected and like we really accomplished something great.  It makes me want to keep going outside to survey all our efforts and just smile.

I’m sure we will write up a whole blog post with the before and after pictures so you guys can smile too (hopefully you’ll like the after, I know we do).

So if you’re feeling like you need to reconnect with your spouse and you have a big project that needs to be done, don’t hesitate, get to work and get it done!

    I’ve never known a more compatible couple than you two. Can’t wait to get down there and see all your hard efforts.
