greater good

Have you ever heard the saying “for the greater good”?  We joke around about it a lot shouting it out in a deep British accent like a bold knight or some grand wizard, but there is a lot of truth to that statement.  Especially after you have children.  Sometimes you have to make sacrifices for …

fll

Since the month of love is upon us I thought it would be fun to take some ‘love’ quizzes with Kenny.  One of the first ones that came to mind was to find out if we share the same love language.  In case you haven’t heard of this, the five love languages is a book …

Karen saw this the other day and could not wait until I got home to show it to me.  It has to be the funniest thing that I have seen in a while.  Who ever design this commerical needs to make more of them, because they did an excellent job. It is very unique for a …

One important part of a lot of marriage vows are the words “in sickness and in health”.  It’s easy to say those words and not even really think about what they mean, until a couple weeks later when your new bride comes down with altitude sickness complete with a horrible headache and all the nausea …

hugs

Sometimes life gets so busy, you’re busy at work, busy at home, busy taking care of the children, tired, it sometimes gets hard to remember to take a moment to say what you admire about your spouse.  I know I think wonderful things about Kenny in my head all the time.  It seems like I …

What Makes Our Marriage Work – Just Be There

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Something that has been really helpful for Karen these last couple of weeks is just for me to be a presence in the room.  She knows that I would be willing to do anything to make a situation better, but sometimes she does not need or want me to solve the problem.  All she wants is …
