Land of the Living

I wake up every morning with the intention to be in a good mood and enjoy my day. I truly wake up with no ill will for anyone or anything.

I think my husband is the exact opposite. He wakes up grumpy (or as Leanne at From Chaos Comes Happiness says - "Crankville.")

Unfortunately moods truly effect the way my day will go. If I am expecting happiness and loving words and thoughts in the am from the egyptian - I better buy a romance novel instead.

So I have turned to caffeine to pull me out of the deep dark trenches known as the grizzly man in the morning. This morning? A double shot espresso. Praise God for the simple things.

I am planning on writing a few things this week that may or may not settle well with those close to me. I am going to take a look at relationships between family members, friends and .. well.. cranky husbands.

I am going to tackle a few key words that I think make a strong relationship: Respect, Honesty, Love, and Trust.

When you think of a healthy, happy relationship - what 4 or 5 words come to mind?

I would add patience. Especially when dealing with the cranky.

The way my morning starts definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day. Sometimes if I work really hard I can turn it around.

Love, understanding, forgiveness, faithfullness, compassion.

Hmmmm. . .the words that come to mind when I think of a good relationship would be understanding, honesty, dedication, love, and trust.

Loving The Reflection

Love, communication, compromise, understanding and honesty. That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had about 4 or 5 more that I would include = but shared the first 5 that came to my head with you.

Hang in there. Try to laugh a little this week. I think the world needs to laugh a little more - it makes the hard times a little lighter.

Love, trust, humour, respect.

Wow - that came easier than I thought.

I'm stopping by from the Lady Bloggers Society Tea - just browsing the pages and found myself spending a big more time that usual on yours - so I'm commenting :)

I wake up in 'Crankville' but I'm trying to start my days on a more positive note.

Respect, Honesty, Love, and Trust are all good. I would also add laughter.

I found you through the Lady Blogger's Society after you commented on my blog. Thanks.
