Daily Marriage Boost #1: Find something to appreciate about your mate and be sure to tell him/her.

"I want you to know how much I appreciate that you..."

Have stuck with me so long.
Are kind to my parents.
Are a good father/mother.
Listen to me.
Make me feel so loved.
Are my most trusted friend.
Work so hard for us every day.

Gratitude has power to change everything.

Oh, thank you, Lisa! In the editors's chat the other day, we were discussing how to engage our readers on a daily basis. This is tougher for some of our topics such as marriage.

Lisa Shea talked about how some lighter threads for these forums and for Facebook can get people to tune in because they are quick, easy and engaging. People need outlets to lighten up their serious days.

I can see how you might do the same for both of your topics! Make a daily suggestion for a small activity that would help your readers remember to be a better mother. Break down larger chores (even like keeping a child's photo album) into small steps. As for Judaism, you could challenge your readers to learn about something or put their faith into action.

Daily Marriage Boost #2:

Stand behind your mate and give him/her a 60-second (or longer) neck massage. The released endorphins will help him connect those feel-good feelings with you.

The power of touch. It is wordless yet infinitely far-reaching if the energy behind the touch is of love and gratitude.

Daily Marriage Boost #3: Listen to Ingrid Michaelson's "The way I am."

"The Way I Am"

If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.

Cause I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

Cause I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.

Daily Marriage Boost #4: Remember that you don't always have to agree so avoid the trauma of trying to change each other's mind!

Accept the other's right to have his/her own way of thinking. You are two halves of a whole so, of course, you'll see things from completely different perspectives. It's a good thing.

(Sorry I was late with this. I had an out-of-town family emergency.)

Daily Marriage Boost #5: That same person you fell in love with is still there underneath the daily burdens. Coax him/her out to play.

Ugh. This might have to be changed and called "Occasional Marriage Boost" because I have been so behind. It feels as though we have been moving, moving, moving our entire marriage.

We think we are minimalists until we have to move our stuff. Honestly, we are at the point of setting it all afire. As long as we have each other, we'll be okay. smile

I came up with this latest marriage boost when my exhausted husband, covered with sweat and paint, looked at me and managed a weak smile. And I saw that darling dimpled grin that melted my heart years ago.

Hey Lori,

I happened to be madly in love with my husband - however, I do enjoy dropping by to get extra tips on keeping it real. Thanks for being the best you and sharing your tips.
