Random Thought # 3142314

You know what I love... marriage counseling

You know what I think all married couples should do..... go to marriage counseling.


This just came to my the same time as 100 other things #ADHDsufferer..... but for serious I think couples/marriage counseling is amazing! Other than the fact that when we sit down and our counselor just smiles at us, waiting on one of us to make the first move. I think I usually do that by saying something equally as awkward like " Welp, I think we have been doing pretty well the last couple weeks." and then I smile and wait. Then he says "Good." and then he waits again.... to be honest I really don't know how we get into great talking sessions....but we do. I have also found that he can sense when i am in need of a good cry. Maybe its the crackle of my voice, or the nearly impossible to see tear at the corner of my eye, but when he catches on he follows with " What is it your feeling there?" and then wait for it....wait foooorrrr itttttt...... WAAAAAAAH. Le' Sob.

He's on to me

I chose to see a male counselor for the selfish hope that since he is a man and Jon is a man that they would have a deep connection and then he could tell Jon he is always wrong and I am always ALWAYS right. "Happy wife , happy life " right?! I was afraid that if we saw a woman he would think we were just ganging up on him. **really I have to say this was pretty smart of me and I still stand by the belief that it kinda worked**

---- from here on out I will refer to him as our professional friend-----


This professional friend of ours is super great! I look forward to going every couple of weeks and I really think that it enriches our marriage. We also drive a little ( 45 mins) out of the way to hang out with this "friend" of ours, but I love the talks that we have in the car when it is just the hubs and I ...well, and the baby. Also in case you couldn't tell by the fact that I am blogging about it and letting the world know we see a professional friend I am proud of us. I am proud that we know what will keep this marriage strong, along with of course our unyielding faith. I also think that no matter how happy, healthy, positive, messy, crazy, perfect, amazing, awful, terrible or normal your marriage is you can always strive for better!

You know what I love... marriage counseling

You know what I think all married couples should do..... go to marriage counseling.

That's my two cents so take it or...... Just take it and trust me on this one would ya!
