Valentine MeMe

Eph2810 tagged me for this Valentine meme. I decided I better write it while it's at least February!
What is one thing you have learned to different in your marriage Hmmmm....I put plenty of thought into this one. I wanted something that was true, not just something that sounds good. Honestly, I can't think of anything big I do different. I think I have learned - am still learning- not to take advantage of Jeremiah's personality. He pretty much would give me anything I ask for. I try to limit the asking.
What is one thing that is important to a good marriage? Little things. Its the little things, like when your husband brings you chocolate home for no reason, that make you feel appreciated. Its also the little things, like...ahem...when your spouse buys the wrong garbage bags, that you just have to let slide.

Praise the Lord Amie! You are a stink'in trip!! I love your website and one thing led to another and I landed two feet here. I'd love to comment on this one for it changed my marriage out look for life. I've learned that just becuz somthing might look true, sound true and may seem to be without a doubt true to your eyes, it may just be your opinion. Sounds that Iam pretty behind, maybe, but this fact has opened my heart and helped me overcome some large could-have-been disasters in my marriage. God surely is an on time God and greatly to be praised!! And I must add one thing that is the upmost priority in our marriage is Jesus!! He is our glue...as James said, we would not of been if he hadn't put that light to our feet and spirit in our lives...little things matter all the time!!

Thanks Amie for 'playing' along. I have to say it sure is also those little, daily things that keep the marriage 'fresh'. :) Even just saying 'I love You'!

Yep, I would have to agree with letting little things slide too!! Like if he is so nice just to try and clean up the kitchen and it isn't the way I would do it, I have learned to let it go (ha ha, at least until he leaves!! lol) This post makes me think, I'll have to ponder it some more!!

Hey Rachel, it's so cool to see you online, maybe we can blab sometime. Me and Beth have blogs too, you should be able to get to them from Amie's but if you can't they are www.hudsonhs.blogspot.com and www.wethby.blogspot.com Talk to you soon, it's been a while!!

Yep, it is amazing how much letting those little things go makes marriage so much more blissful! But also it is so important to appreciate the little things our hubby's do for us. That is hard to do! Zach is so great with helping out around here and with the kids. I'm finally beginning to see how many of the little things he does...and I'm learning to appreciate it! Great post!
