Couples: . . . and I have Many Blessings

Uploaded: Nov 23, 2017
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you wonderful people! I'm grateful you read Couple's Net. I hope you continue to find value here. I'll keep writing to you.

There is much to be thankful for today. Look your beloved in the eye, say, "I love you," and hug belly to belly for a few minutes.

There are also a lot of disturbing and stressful things going on in the community, the state, the country and the world. As we get into focusing on these and any other inner turmoil, please add the words: "and I have many blessings" to the end of all your complaining sentences. Do it whether you say those things aloud or just in your head.

Many of your self-talk tapes spin endlessly in your mind. Use that phrase to rewire your brain. It may be that you say " . . . and I have many blessings" hundreds of times a day. That's okay. Do it anyway.
We can't do it without you.

A true blessing is finding a life partner who does NOT fart under the covers! Or, when one does, both giggle like little children. Ah, to be young again!
