Time to find a quiet dark spot to see some falling stars.

It is the time of year to to pack the picnic rug and a thermos of hot chocolate with marshmallows of course.

Lay back and gaze at those stars. This is kind of romantic, to wish upon star.

The annual occurrence is known as the Eta Aquarids meteor shower, and this year observers will have prime viewing thanks to the shower coinciding with a New Moon.

The Eta Aquarids will begin around 20 April and continue until about 21 May. Astronomers say the best time to see the shower, or “shooting stars”, will be in the middle of the event, on 6 and 7 May, when the New Moon occurs. When this happens, the sky will be at its darkest, as the moon moves between the Earth and Sun and is hidden from view.

Drive her around town until she’s thoroughly lost. Then reveal your secret destination:  A favourite restaurant, or maybe a romantic hotel or secluded picnic spot.

You could pack a basket with some nice cheeses, fresh bread, fruit, and some iced tea  lemonade or champagne and strawberries. Bring a large blanket and find a park to settle in for a tasty al fresco picnic.

 

 

Time to talk


Women need quality conversations

Don’t let your conversations with your partner dwindle to nothing but talk about your kids, your jobs, and the weather. If that happens, your marriage relationship could be in real trouble.

Think back to when the two of you were dating one another. Did you have times when you had nothing to say to one another? Probably not.

When a couple reaches the point of not having anything to say to one another, their marriage is in serious trouble. Here are some tips on why conversation in a marriage is so essential, and topics to talk about.

Andre Maurois, French novelist and essayist, wrote, “A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.”

Most folks don’t marry someone they can’t talk with. A good conversation is when you are both contributing to the conversation. When you are having a good conversation with your spouse, you are both giving each other your undivided attention.

CONVERSATION FILLS MANY NEEDS:

  • To be connected to another.
  • To have your feelings and thoughts heard and respected.
  • To learn new things.couple-talking2-saidaonline
  • To sort through issues and problems.
  • To discuss and explore solutions.
  • To reach an understanding of one another.
  • Your spouse’s hobbies or other interests.

WHAT TO TALK ABOUT:

  • Plans for a future trip together.
  • Memories of your childhoods.
  • Movies or television shows.
  • Things you would like to experience or places you would like to visit.
  • Something you learned during the day or something you did differently or new that day.
  • Discuss your thoughts and feelings about the day.
  • Ask some questions that begin with “if you could”, or “Have you ever”, or “do you believe.”

Although the news, weather, kids, jobs, money, household chores, health issues, in-laws, friends, etc. are all important topics that the two of you need to talk about, don’t let them be the main focus of your conversations with each other

Believe in His Capabilities

Many men believe it is important for them to protect and provide for those they love. Let him know that you believe in his talents and skills and are supportive of him.

Being a supportive spouse can be both a rewarding and a difficult role. Although the dictionary definition is quite clear, living out being supportive in your marriage isn’t always so well defined. For most couples the most important aspect of being supportive is being a loving presence in your spouse’s life.

Definition

If you look for a dictionary definition of being supportive, you will find phrases like “being an advocate”, “providing for”, “strengthening”, “to keep from weakening or failing”, “bearing the weight”, and “keeping from falling, sinking, slipping.”

That’s quite a responsibility for any one to take on. The sense of responsibility grows even greater when a spouse is weighed down by problems with job, family, kids, health, or social obligations or is coping with feelings of loss, disappointment, and fear.

Ways to be Supportive

  • Respect your spouse’s personal decisions.
  • Show that you have faith in your mate.
  • Be the shoulder to lean on when your spouse has a sinking feeling.
  • Work together with your spouse to maintain balance in your life together.
  • Don’t be threatened by your spouse’s accomplishments. Tell people, especially your partner, how proud you are of his/her talents and skills.
  • In wanting to help your spouse to rebound from a difficult situation, don’t try to solve your partner’s problem.
  • Listen well so that your spouse knows you are wanting to understand the issue or situation troubling your mate.
  • Be realistic as you encourage your spouse. Don’t exaggerate.

See you mate grow more positive as you respect and honour his contributions.diy-working-couple
