    April Fools Day and Couples

    We've all heard "Laughter is the best medicine". It has been studied and it is especially good for a relationship. April Fools jokes helps us feel closer to others. The 5 to 1 rule of positives to negatives that strengthen a marriage is easy to use on this day.  Bob Hope, who was a comedian, and married 60 years. He said he and his wife had a strong marriage because of humor.  So here's some ideas to have more humor in your family:

    Be aware of the humor each day.

    Make it a habit for everyone in your family to share at dinner something funny that happened to them.

    My husband studies comedy---almost every night he watches Faulty Towers a British comedy.

    Laugh about funny times---when I went to see the daffodils this weekend. My daughter said they were dead. (They were in full bloom!)

    Finally, be a good sport when a blog entry and images don't work. Someone maybe playing a trick (hmmm).

    Relationships In Spring

    In Spring I go out and work in my sorry looking yard. From my desk I see weeds, dried plants, moss and fallen leaves. No matter how I try my yard is not attractive throughout the year.

    My beautiful trees will start to bud and my daffodils will bloom. Yet I still need to work to create the garden I want to see. Planting and knowing were to plant are skills I have learned.

    Your relationship garden skills can be learned as well. Create change in yourself and in your relationship. I want to encourage you to revise your approach. While you can’t change anyone else, I know growing yourself will make it more likely the other person will be influenced. 

    A key, a Key, is to have conversational time, preferably daily. This means a listening and a speaking time of each person for about fifteen minutes. Empathy, no talk about the kids and meaningful topics are needed in these conversations. These are often neglected just as a yard can be.

    If you are not ready yet. find a way to develop both the time and willingness for both of you to have this conversation. Spring is in the air, put in those beautiful plants now.
