Very nice thread life, thanks for starting it!

My goal is to be respectful even when I 100 percent disagree.  I tend to think that I know better on certain subjects than the husband.  Wow, wouldn't that be annoying?  So, to allow him a voice and not be the 'boss'.

I also feel like I can do a better job in showing true appreciation for the life I have.  I do consider my family and life a blessing including my husband and I want them to know that rather than getting caught up in the day to day drill in which I forget to show it.

Hi Life 360!
     I've a long distance relationship with my husband of 20 yrs. His job requires him to travel to China & work there a month. Romance suffers. He has jet lag so I've learned not to bother him.  When he feels rested, it's hard to know.   So I guess my Resolution regarding my relationship is to be more astute to the Sensual Timing in life. To have our life be more rewarding in that aspect.        Pamela

The one that would make the most immediate difference in my husband's life is if I were less blase about household clutter.  

I also like specialmom's about being respectful.  My husband and I get along well, but I can get a tone when irked, and he really hates to hear it.  I need to remember that it he hears it harder than I say it.  (Same thing happens if he comments that the dog walked in with wet feet and left footprints on the floor.  I hear it as personal criticism, and boy do I hate to hear it.)

So, I guess patience with tones of voice, calmness instead of snappishness, and household drudgery, are on my New Year's Resolutions list.  You can see which one I feel least thrilled about.  lol
