It seems like in the day to day normal life of marriage it’s easy to get in a bit of a rut or get bogged down with the stresses of life. One of the things that helps us keep things in perspective is to count our blessings. Instead of dwelling on ‘oh, she forgot to put those clothes in the dryer’ or ‘oh, he forgot to take the trash out’, we try to think about the things in our lives that are blessings that we truly don’t deserve- a nice home, a healthy baby girl, friends, family, a loving spouse.
You might think that is just a silly thing but it really works. It’s just like any aspect of life, when your mind is focused on the positive things there just isn’t room for the negativity anymore.
