Many marital arguments focus on "Who is right." It's natural to want to be right in an argument but it doesn't serve your love. Even if you can fact check your position and prove you are right, it's better to come up with a "win/win" solution. Practice looking for creative alternatives during your next argument.

"Conduct your affairs with humility" (Sirach  3:17) It's human nature to want respect and to be thought well of. But sometimes we humans unconsciously puff ourselves up or find ways to draw attention to our importance. A loving spouse can give us honest feedback when we are sounding our own praise too strongly.

Recently my cell phone died. I felt anxious about missing calls and annoyed that I would have to pay a lot of money to replace my trusty friend. When things like this happen, prayer usually leads me to put it in perspective: "This is a first world problem." Be grateful for my husband - my main trusty friend. Besides, he also has a cell phone for back up. :-)

For the Spring Equinox (March 20) I suggested that you celebrate equality in your marriage by balancing whatever "spring cleaning" was necessary. For the Fall Equinox (Sept. 23) perhaps you can balance the tasks of putting away summer equipment. Balance this "work" with each sharing a favorite summer memory.

Wonder how to protect your child from being vulnerable to manipulation or abuse by bullies? There's no magic vaccine but a child who knows they are unconditionally loved and respected by their parent(s) is inclined to accept their own worth and not depend on validation from others.
