Boundaries: Distraction in Relationships

            So, the other morning while heading into the office, I drove by a 3 car crash. It looked just like most car crashes I see on the road these days. Car #1 rear-ended car #2 which then rear-ended car #3. Since I am reading Boundaries in Marriage, I decided to use this as my next blog. Hope you can follow it, feel free to leave the blog, get three matchbox cars or 3 objects and label them 1, 2, 3. Place them in a line. Got the visual, now slam car #1 into car...

All I want for Christmas...

An interesting thought crept into my head early the morning before Thanksgiving. Strangely enough it had nothing to do with turkey and pies. On Thanksgiving Day many families, like mine, stand around the table holding hands and say what they are thankful for. It is the single most day out of the year people in the United States give thanks. Over the next month begins the asking season. Often the very same day, people begin asking, “What do you want?” We even create elaborate detailed lists to make the gift-giving season easier. We write letters to a fictional character in...

Marriage: Save your fork

             “Save your fork.” I love this! For me this means you have no idea what is coming, but it will be worth staying put, ready to eat fork in hand.  A promise the next course is going to be just as good or better than the previous course. Often this saying is used to let others know that dessert is being served. Something sweet is coming to the table. Now let’s use this saying to parallel it to marriage. The first course, appetizer, is like a tickler of the palate. A primer. The main course...

Marriage: Mission Statement

              Dream with me for just a minute or two. Imagine you are a highly successful business person. You own a fortune 500 company. This company is voted best place to work in all the world. When you pull into the parking lot there is a space with your name on it. You have your own office with a downtown, ocean or mountain view, or all 3. Your employees actually smile while telling you good morning. The office is always tidy and clean, and the air smells like the great outdoors. It runs like...

Relationship: How is your engine running?

               After attending a conference entitled, “Sex Made Simple”, I have realized sex is complicated. No refund, I sat through all 8 hours of the conference and bought the book. Dr. McCarthy attempted to make it as simple as possible but anything involving two people and gears is anything but simple. If you are like me, activities involving a motor gives you an instant headache and glassy eyes. Thankfully my husband can fix anything, more gears the better. Let me explain how sex and gears go together.                 According to Dr. McCarthy, there are...
