Assume Love (TM): How to have a happier marriage without waiting for your spouse to change (daisy logo)

« The October Blog Challenge | Main | Woohoo! A Great Example of Assume Love »

A Challenge from a Fellow Blog Reader

Susan, whose comments you may have noticed, sent this:

Patty I have a throwdown challenge for your readers: try not saying one critical word to your spouse for a full month. During that time tell your spouse at least three times a day things about them you are grateful for -- even if it is taking out the garbage. My husband and I found this really hard at first and now there is no going back to the old way of living.

Let's make November that month.

Gratitude is good for you. It makes you happier with your life. It is good for your relationship, too. Let's give it a try. Report back in the comments if it's working for you.


I accept the challenge, Susan! I'm going to start right this minute. It's perfect because yesterday was the 17 year anniversary of our first kiss! I look forward to trying this out.

Go, Tammy! And congratulations on that special anniversary.
