Dear Dr. Laura:
Last year, my daughter got married, and I bought her your book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands." She's been exposed to my "Dr. Laura-isms" her entire life, and I hope she follows your advice in her marriage just as I have, because it truly works! My husband gets to hear all the fun facts and knowledge I pick up from your program each week.
We own a business and work there together, which means we spend a lot of time with each other between work and home. Working and living together can sometimes be a challenge, but we make it work. Our friends ask us how we do it, as they see us as crazy, or else they say they could never do it.
My husband had some serious health issues recently and was in and out of the hospital. A nurse asked us how long we'd been married and couldn't believe it had been 26 years, because we were so "nice" to each other! She said she doesn't see couples like us very often. I credit much of that to you. I'm so appreciative to have you in the back of my brain, daily guiding me. It makes me happy to know that I am doing everything possible to make my husband happy and to be his girlfriend!
Remember, all of you can send me "letters
" too - by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
