Writing Challenge #1:

List 5 things you and your husband do for each other in your marriage that are sweet habits you've developed over the years.

**If you take part in this challenge on your Blog, please tell me in my comments! Thanks.

1. Mark makes me coffee every morning! He usually pours it for me and brings it to me.

2. We read the Bible and pray together to begin our days. Well, Mark reads and I listen.

3. I sign his cards: Love, Your First Wife. Often, he will refer to me during a sermon or a choir rehearsal as his first wife. That can confuse new folks!

4. After 28 years of marriage, he still opens every door and car door for me. He has always treated me with such respect and gentleness.

5. We support each other in our endeavors. Example: I have tried to attend nearly all of Mark's concerts and musical performances over the years.

I sometimes wonder how many of the things we do as couples our children will talk about in later years..how many things they notice...what kinds of things they'll carry into their own marriages. I'm thinking the "first wife" thing will be a conversation starter, for sure! LOL

These were great, Debbie. I enjoyed reading all of them!

I will play if I can think of 5... I guess we are remarkably unsweet around here...

Deborah said...

This is so cute! I'm thinking....

We're kinda boring around here, but I'm thinking....

I may not have 5 things, but I'll post in a little while with some things we do. Maybe I should just ask my very honest kids what they see every day ;)

I love you so much and miss you. I love it now that you have the time to blog. I really enjoy visiting your blog.

How sweet Debbie! Praying together is an important one, and my dh and I need to get better at doing that every day!

Oh btw, yes I am trained to get him his ice cream hehe But how can I resist when he says things like that!

Those little things really carry you through, don't they?

I participated, but you already commented, so you know. ;-)

I really needed this as a reminder of the good things.
