marriages have ups and downs do they not?
but even with the ups and downs you want to continually work on building a stronger relationship.
working together as a couple on things and complimenting each other on the job well done is a great way to build a stronger relationship.
let me do a conversation with the husband if you will.
setting the scene: GI joe husband and i are in the pasture and while i break up the mule poop, he shovels it and spreads it by tossing it all over the pasture.
GI Joe husband: (throwing a shovel full of mule crap off the far side of the pasture) you are doing a really good job of breaking up the poop. (no i'm not kidding people)
me: why thank you...pausing and thinking...i think your poo throwing skills are awesome.
GI joe husband: thank you.
and there you have it. now go break up some crap and throw it around...guaranteed to make your marriage a strong one...
btw: my husband who is no longer GI Joe actually does this for a living now.
so you should TOTALLY listen to me when i talk about marriage.
