Evening of caring...

Caring for my wife physically at a deeper, more involved level was meaningful to me. It caused me to think about caring more deeply for her in life in general. -Thinking more about her needs and her feelings when we're apart. Considering her even when I may feel I don't really have to. -Focusing on the blessing of having somebody to love, who is sharing her life with me by her own choice. -Valuing that as a constant reality, realizing that it could end, and that, for so many people, that reality has ended, or it never began in the first place.
The exercise makes me think more deeply about the positive effects my own caring and loving actions can have on her mood, and our overall happiness and satisfaction.

That sounds great. Isn't it sad that we must find ourselves in crisis before we attend to those things which bring such overwhelming satisfaction and delight? :g: :g:

Hi Rebuilder,

Is this your response to Ex. 2? If so, it needs to be posted in your couple's thread. Otherwise it can be posted in the Couple's community support forum where other's may contribute. For a refresher on how to post in the forums, please visit the welcome centre.

Thank you

CoachMel,

Thank you for noticing. My wife and I copy/pasted it into our couple's thread, where it belongs.
