Email of the Day: Improving Our Marriage Was Easier Than I Expected

Before I started listening to you, my marriage of 30 years was a roller coaster ride. Listening to you changed my attitude. Why didn’t I know it could be this easy?? MY changes were enough to change his attitude and our marriage, and now we are spectacular together.

 

I had been the breadwinner and the homemaker, and I had to be in control. Then after two surgeries, I was stunned to realize how much support he gave me and how much I needed it. He was THERE for me. I’ve recovered and our marriage is transformed.

 

He left an “I Love You” note for me one morning where I was sure to see it. I turned it over and wrote my own “I Love You” note for him and left it where he would find it. In the years since, we’ve never missed a day of passing that note back and forth. One morning I found it in my make-up bag. One night, I found “I Love You” carved on the surface of the ice cream he had just bought me. Sometimes, a single rose in a beautiful vase accompanies the note. These days, he has dinner ready when I get home from work, and he takes care of the yard, my car and he works at his leisure from home.

 

Thank you for your gift of insight, which has made the gift of “us” possible!
