You Have Got to Read This Post

Now I know, that besides myself, hardly anyone reads this blog. It's OK. I'm not much of a "put it out there kind of girl". It's really OK. And the couple of sweethearts who do read will agree with me about the following - I just know they will :)

You have got to read this post. Or maybe "I got to read this post" and I did and it was so great, I'm letting you know about it.

I am currently reading Love and Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, generously recommended and given to me by Bev. It is a great book about men and women & love and respect and all the "how tos", "the whys", the "how comes" and, mostly importantly, "because it says so in the Bible". This is a Christian point of view and approach to marriage that I had not heard of before that is really gelling with me as I try to incorporate it into my own life and marriage.

So then I come across the above mentioned posts in the Rocks in My Dryer Works for Me Wednesday meme. And in the post are links to other posts and people who really get these ideas and know how to make them work.

OK, OK, obviously I'm a little slow on the uptake. But really I think I have been carrying around too much baggage from my first (and long ago) try at marriage. I knew things needed to be different but wasn't sure how to start and, at that point, was consumed by a child dealing with divorce, so things just got put on the back burner.

But they are on the front burner now and posts and people like these in our bloggy-world are great and helpful and enouraging and awesome and I love them and I'm sure you get the point so I will stop now :)

Have a great weekend. It is freezing here but I hear there is MAJOR snow around Lake Ontario and it's making me a little nervous so I've got to go and fill up the gas tank, find the shovels and get some grocery shopping done in case we get DUMPED ON!

How nice my sister sent you the book. She practices what she preaches, too. She has a wonderful marriage, one of the best I've ever known.

You're right. Carol's post is great. She's put some great advice out there and it's nice to see all the comments she got on it - every woman who reads that post and implements her suggestions will be so much happier for it. I hadn't quite gotten over to She Lives yet, so thank you for leading me right to it.
