Seems simple enough, right? Just offer a good night to your spouse before you end the day. I have to admit, this is something that we just don’t do around here. We(well, I) always kiss the kids good night, but we seldom do this for each other. We do always say good-bye when leaving each other for the day, but good night is something that we tend to skip for some reason. We do go to bed at different times, sometimes 3 to 4 hours of a difference, so “good night” may seem relative. I do think that we need to start making this a priority. Whenever we do say good night, it always puts a smile on our faces, so why wouldn’t we do it everyday? It’s a simple thing to do but it makes a good huge difference in how we interact with each other.
This challenge was a very good learning experience. Hubby and I actually talked this one out for a bit, because it was something that we both felt passionate about and it happened to be part of our Pastor’s sermon on Sunday. Kristen asks us to answer 3 questions:
1. How are when will you fight? Disagree?
2. How will you speak to each other?
3. Any “code” words, signs, messages, that you can give so the other knows to back off?
