There’s Nothing Perfect About It

I took a trip some time back to Colorado and I must say that I didn’t know Colorado had that much of nothing out there…almost as bad as driving from San Antonio to El Paso in Texas.  Nonetheless, as I was driving back to my hotel in Colorado Springs, I

That’s Not My Role!

In our Facebook group, The Conversation…Continued (TCC), there have been some interesting debates about “traditional roles” in the male/female relationship.  Admittedly, I sit back with my husband and have a hearty laugh at some of the thoughts that have been shared.

Marriage: What Is Your Perception? (pt 1 of 3)

When my oldest was 8 years old, she asked to wear some earrings that she received in birthday party goodie bag to church.  The earrings were cute, but I did not find them to be appropriate for an 8 year old. I told her she could wear them in the

LOOK Like You Want It

What did you do when you first laid eyes on your spouse?  For the women, you probably just played it off as though you didn’t see him.  For the men, you probably looked and continued to look until you got some type of return look from her.  To this day

What 7 Year Itch?

There is a saying out there that every marriage goes through a 7 year itch during the 7th year of marriage.  I have always wondered what is the “itch” that some people supposedly encounter during this time.  Is it an itch to be with someone else romantically?  Is it an
