Opinion Saturday: Nurturing Relationships (and getting published)
Note: Due to my seeming lack of ability to control the autopost feature on my blog, this post showed up a day early. (Look at the calendar, already, Mary!) But since I am too busy to post anything better (homestudy meeting Friday, parent education meeting Friday evening and all day Saturday) I’m leaving it up and giving y’all an extra day to comment. If you want an update on my day yesterday, you can check out my Ethiopia blog.
Today’s question is about nurturing your relationship. One thing that my hubby and I do sometimes is stay up late and dream together…we talk about what we’d like to do in the future. Some of the dreams are wacky and some are practical, but the time spent talking about our shared future helps us feel more bonded to each other. What makes you and your spouse feel close in the midst of child-rearing?
You have until Wednesday evening to share your secrets. The best answer wins my Golden Keyboard Award.
I’ve been getting such great answers to these questions that I’ve decided to include some of them in the book I am writing. I have already contacted some of you privately to ask permission to use your wise words where they will fit in my book.
Don’t worry– I won’t use one sentence without permission–so please keep participating in Opinion Saturday even if you would rather not be quoted. But if you’ve always wanted to see your writing in a book, keep sharing your wise words with me. If your words fit well in my book, I’ll be contacting you and asking your permission to use them. I am envisioning a contributor page at the back of the book that will list all the names and blog addresses of the writers whose work ends up in the book.
So come on– hit me with your best thought!
