    Discussion: Appreciating You Spouse/A Person You Live Side-by-Side

    What To Do?
    • Is it possible to appreciate a person for many, many years living side-by-side?
    • Provide your insights into your personal life and examples
    • How do you envision your appreciation on the daily basis
    • Do you get tired of that?
    • Would you share your personal examples how you keep the relationship going?

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I have only been in long term relationships. I take commitment, honesty and loyalty very seriously and your partner must as well. You must have the same wants/goals/and needs in life. For example, if you want children and he doesn’t that’s a deal breaker. Sometimes you can really think you know someone, date them
      For years and realize that in reality you didn’t know then
      As well as you thought.
      To keep a healthy relationship takes a lot of trust, patience, and communication. If you have a lack in any of those areas you will start seeing problems occur. If left un corrected, and you cannot learn to communicate, trust and love with a passion chances are it isn’t going to end well.

      • My husband and I are at a deal breaker. We lost a baby a year ago and since then he is afraid to try again. I want more but he at this point says no. I just turned 35 so my clock is running out. But I agree that could break the relationship

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          Oh Elicia, I’m so very sorry for your loss. I’m praying that things will work out for you.

        • CoffeeTime says:

          Elicia,
          Take a good, deep breath, have PEACE inside. That would allow you not to worry about anything.
          Allow yourself to enjoy life in the NOW.
          You still have years! I had my 1st baby at 38.
          Just keep your healthy lifestyle and joy within. That’s the most important thing.
          This situation will work out – whatever outcome will be – just know that you are Beautiful, Powerful, Capable of whatever you want!

        • Mandi Gilliam says:

          Elicia….. I know exactly how you feel. It nearly ripped me limb from limb in my relationship. And I am sorry for your loss as well and will keep you close in my prayers.

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      I do believe it is possiable to have a long term relationship I got married at age 17 I now have been married this year for 30 years my hubby is my best friend and sole mate we have had some patches but the love has overcome that and you have to have faith and trust its a must and you have to put fun in a marriage its up to you and him to keep the dull and boring out yes day to day thing but make date nights and weekend get a ways but keep the communications ports open and that’s what I do we all have good and bad days but we can make more better days we just have to do it

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I am married for 35 years. I recently fractured my hip and my hubby has been my rock. He has changed my dressing, helped me shower and dress, made my meals, and took care of the house. Not once did I hear him complain. Yes, it is possible to have a long term relationship and appreciate someone side by side.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I believe it is possible to have a long term relationship with a person you live with. My sister and her husband have been married over 20 yrs and they, I believe have a good relationship. It is all about the communication between a couple. My grandparents were married for I believe 65 yrs or more and I have never seen two people so close. They had a fairy tale married. It so inspired me and others in my family. I am divorced and don’t live with my ex but we still are “boyfriend and girlfriend”. I think we get along better living in separate homes.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Rebecca,
        I do strongly agree it’s about COMMUNICATION & RESPECT FOR EACH OTHER.

        My hubby and I respect each other for who we are, our likes and dislikes, and support each other in any issue by discussing it.

        Love this relationship when it’s a total peace of mind that the other person next to me respects me and loves no matter what.

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        Rebecca, I think it was Katherine Hepburn who said something along the lines of “the last person we should ever live with, is the one we love”…….some people just do better with their own spaces, but can still be together happily. Kudos for recognizing that for yourself, rather than trying to force something that wasn’t going to work.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      My hubby and I shared the same core values and that’s what got us through a lot of the first years together. We both appreciated things about one another that were different, and we never tried to change one another. That was a biggie for me, that we could accept one another as is, warts and all. We enjoyed a lot of the same things, but we also each had our own interests as well. The fun part was learning to explore some of those interests together.
      He spoiled me rotten for years. He woke me up every morning with a kiss and coffee in bed. He did most of the cooking, and always did the dishes. If he thought I wanted something, he’d bend over backwards to make it happen. We were best friends, and always tried to work together. Both of us were good at compromising. If he felt strongly about something, I would usually let him have his way……and goodness knows he let me have mine a lot!
      This last year, he was in an accident that caused traumatic head injury. It’s changed our lives. I’m now his caregiver. He still has a great sense of humor (one of the things that drew me to him in the first place), but he can’t take care of himself. Now it’s my turn to spoil him. I think if we hadn’t had a strong foundation to start with, we’d never have gottten through this.

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Raye,
        Sharing Values is a BIGGIE for me.
        If the two people do not have something that crucial in common, I do not think the relationship will work.

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          I totally agree. We have always had many many different ideas, and not always seen eye to eye……but the core values stayed strong, and that’s what kept us close.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        well that’s what we do and sorry he got hurt but that bond you have with him is so strong and god will help you threw it funny how things can change and we are to deal with the hand we are dealt with make us stronger

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Raye,
        This relationship is so beautiful.
        Agree that without Foundation you’ve got built and strengthened you’d be miserable.
        Thank you for sharing your abundant thinking every day with us!

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          When he was in the hospital, with crushed bones, his head broken open, he’d had 3 strokes there due to the injuries, and he didn’t even recognize the kids or remember his own name………in the middle of the night, during the quiet hours….I’d hear him call my name or call “baby?”…….and when I’d say yes? He’d ask “are you okay?”…….That pretty much says it all. In that condition, he still remembered me, and worried about me.
          You can’t help but love a man like that.

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        Raye I commend you for your love and devotion to your husband. You should be so proud of yourself. kudos to you. 🙂

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          Well thanks ladies, but I figure for all the years he treated me like a queen, it is now my chance to return that devotion.

          • Raye Wiedner says:

            I just told hubby about this conversation and he said when we were first together, and we had a big fight and he went up to the shed……I followed him and walked straight into his arms. He said “I thought we were fighting!” I told him shush, yes I was mad, no I wasn’t over it…..but the rule was, when I was upset, he was the one that I was supposed to be able to go to for comfort, so he had to just be quiet and hold me for a few minutes, then we could go back to mad again.
            He says anytime we had a rough patch, he remembered that and always tried to make me feel better so we could get back on track.
            I had no idea he remembered that til he told me just this minute. Amazing. He can’t remember what day it is most of the time, but he still remembers that.

    • Elicia P says:

      My parents were married 35 years before my father passed three weeks ago. I watched them and although they had rough patches in their marriage they loved each other like they did when they first got married. I believe you can be side by side to someone that long. They become your best friend the one you rely on. My grandparents were married 70 years before my grandfather passed. It is possible. I read somewhere recently that spouses that kiss each other every morning live longer. Maybe that is the key to successes!

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        I”m so sorry for your loss Elicia. It sounds as though you have beautiful memories of them to treasure.

        • I do thank you Raye. My mom is sharing more memories as the days pass that I did not know about my dad. They truly had a great marriage.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I’ve only been married for 5 years so I have to say I’m still learning all these things. How to communicate, respect each other and how to keep appreciating each other. Our hardest thing is communication right now. I definitely don’t have the answers to these questions but I’m looking forward to reading everyone else’s comments and learning. I come from divorced parents and have only seen divorce in pretty much every single aunt/uncle and family friend that I know. My husband is the opposite. So, I’m looking forward and open to learning!

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        The fact that you’re looking to learn, and that you’re willing to work, says you stand a very good chance of being married for many many years 🙂

    • Megan Warren says:

      I think communication and respect is key to a good relationship. My husband and I havent been together for many many years, but my parents have and I can say it is possible to live side by side and still appreciate the person you are with after 35+ years together.
      As far as my husband and I, we dont necessarily tell each other everyday we appreciate each other, but we know we do. I stay home with 3 of our 4 and I know he appreciates me putting career on hold temporarily even if he comes home some days and the house is a disaster and dinner isn’t made. He knows it was probably a crazy day so he’ll take care of the kids when he gets home and let me take a nice long kid free shower. To me its all about the little things.

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        Sometimes those little things mean more than all the diamonds in the world! Those are the glue that holds you together. It sounds like you both SHOW one another as much as tell one another that you’re each appreciated.

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Dh and I have only been together for 7 years but it feels like decades (in a good way!). We have been through so much already and are still going strong. Sure he annoys me sometimes and vice versa but at the end of the day we both know we have it good!

    • stephanie jenkinks says:

      i am still married but separated but its all good when we were together all we did was fight all the time there were some good coffee times but not many

    • I have been married to my soulmate for 25 years this May, he is my best friend, we really understand each other, we laugh loud, love long, and really enjoy each other, hope we have another 25 years together

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      Flowers are not my best topic. Growing up I used to help my grandma on the garden, we would buy those flowers that are pre-grown in soil. And she would let me dig the holes while she handed me the flowers to place in the flower bed. She had tulips, variety of flowers that I can’t for the life of me remember the names of, also had a beautiful rose bush. And what we called monkey grass to line the flower bed with. There was just something about gardening that was soothing to the soul, and I made so many good memories with her in those moments. I would then once fully bloomed sometimes go pick the flowers from the garden and give them to her as a token of my appreciation. It always brought a smile to her face.

      • Karen Hinkle says:

        I love my flowers I have over 50 different perennial and I have huge flower beds I am a green hand by nature I do but some annuals but prefer my perennial they come back each year and you can get more by just digging them up and dividing them up and you can also share them I do like to make a great place with my arrangement to be a place where I go to relax and enjoy them I see a flower I don’t have I am getting it I carry a shovel if I see something on the side of the road I don’t have I getting it LOL I find peace when I am working with my plants I have several flowering plants all year long that I have in my house I have even taken plants that ppl have said I don’t know its dying and I rescue them bring them back to life I have several diffrents that are my favorit I cant just mane one

        • Carol Yemola says:

          Don’t you just love flower gardening? You get immediate satisfaction with every bloom!

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          Karen, the only flower I’ve ever gotten to grow out here is one that hubby dug up on the side of the road! lol.
          I said oh, aren’t those pretty!!! Two days later I came home from work, and there they were in the yard!

          • Karen Hinkle says:

            well have you tried onimental grasses they seem to grow any where

          • Carol Yemola says:

            Do you know what kind they were?

          • Raye Wiedner says:

            The ones he brought me are orange and yellow columbine. I don’t know why they’ll grow here but nothing else seems to do well. There are some irises on the property (those things are hardy!!) but there are tons of wildflowers, and it’s mostly wooded here, so we get lots of dogwood blossoms in spring.
            We have apple, cherry, and peach trees that the birds always beat me to, and a mulberry tree I beat them to lol. Lots and lots of blackberries and some raspberries. We get lots of color, it’s just what nature provides, because not much I do intentionally seems to work lol

      • Elicia P says:

        Haha, I have a black thumb. I end up killing what I grow!

    • Carol Yemola says:

      During the summer I raise zinnias! They make excellent cut flowers and I often give them to my friends and family as a little pick me up. In addition, I have huge perennial beds with lots of varieties. I also have about 40 rose bushes and love they way they smell when added to an arrangement. I think these flowers make the best gifts since they are grown by myself with lots of tender loving care.

    • Megan Warren says:

      I’m definitely not known for having a green thumb! I do love fresh flowers and appreciate nice landscaping/gardens, but I usually dont have the time to put much effort into it. With 4 little ones it’s usually on the bottom of my list. 🙁 I love roses and calla lillies.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I love any kind of flower outside in the ground that you plant. It makes a yard. I always try to grow potted flowers in the house in the winter but usually fail at it probably cause it is so cold here and not enough sun. Flowers that are potted or fresh cut always cheer people up. I believe and have heard that the scent of flowers can improve the mood of people. I would like to see a rug with floral print or any kind of bulbs given as a gift.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      I love flowers, but where I live, they’re really hard to grow. We have a lot of rocky, sandy ground, and a lot of clay. I’m a champ at weeds though!! lol
      My favorite quote is “I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” I truly would love to have fresh flowers year round in my home. To me, that’s pure luxury. I love that you can buy small cheap bouquets at the grocery store now that are pretty and can brighten a table.
      My favorites have always been wildflowers. There are purple ones here that grow down by the river, hubby used to pick for me every year. I have no idea what they’re called, but they’ll always be special to me.
      I do know a lot of flowers and plants are used in home remedies, and I’ve been studying a lot about that lately. It’s very interesting to me.

    • Elicia P says:

      Love flowers, love them any way but I like potted so they stay around longer. Although I have a black thumb I still like them. Flowers to me make a homey place. I love orchids.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I love flowers, especially potted plants because you can have them forever! Don’t get me wrong, it’s always nice to get flowers but it’s disappointing when they die, at least for me. I’m probably just weird that way. I like getting really unique plants. My sister once got me this gorgeous plant for my birthday. It looked like long hair made of bright green pea sized and shaped pods. It was gorgeous. Sadly, I did not get the instructions on how to take care of it and it died but someday I hope to find another one!

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        Jennifer, I used to get really sad when flowers started to die too, so now I gather them up once they start wilting, and make sachets out of them. The scent doesn’t always last a long time, but I add a few drops of essential oil if needed, and I always have the memory of them.

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      I do not have a green thumb! But I keep trying! We have 2 rose bushes right now that dh bought me for Mother’s day last year and they are still alive so maybe I’m finally getting the hang of it! LOL I prefer a potted plant/flowers to fresh cut – give me something that is going to live more than a few days!

    • stephanie jenkinks says:

      carnations are my favorite

    • Love fresh cut flowers!

    Discussion: TOP 5 Ways To Relax As A Woman

    What To Do? –> Share and Comment
    • Name your 5 BEST Ways To Relax
    Be creative, playful and really think it through. Be yourself! We would like to feel and see what other women do and think to relax their bodies and minds and gain that energy that would carry them back onto the life stream!

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      relaxing for me would be I know you are going to think I am crazy when I say this but I love to mow the lawn it relaxes me and well I am also a Greens mower for a golf course and if you see how the lawn looks at the courses you know what I mean to make the lawn that pretty its a great feeling ok that’s one the other is sitting in my flower garden in the summer and watching my birds another is social media just talking to others like this is just great or just a evening at home with my hubby and enjoying a nice dinner

      • Carol Yemola says:

        I thought I was the only one who thought mowing the lawn was relaxing! For an hour and a half I ride that mower and have nothing to do but reflect!

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Give me a glass of wine and hot bubble bath and I am in relaxation heaven.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I relax by taking a nice hot bath with no noise at all. I sit in the tub and just think of good memories as I smile and laugh to myself. Very simple and sweet.

    • Megan Warren says:

      With 4 kiddos I don’t get much “me” time, but will definitely enjoy a nice hot long shower whenever given the chance! I also love to bake and craft usually with my kids. I think finding a hobby you enjoy is a great way to relax.

    • CoffeeTime says:

      Relaxing for me is a few things that I treasure and follow.

      1. I love and need PEACE to operate on the daily basis
      If there’s no peace in me, no good decisions or any decisions are made.

      2. Love to enjoy a few minutes of deep inside reflection.
      Just doing nothing, only breathing and letting it go. I feel energized and am ready to jump onto the next task and turn the world around in a positive way.

      3. Love my animals
      I have 3 Cornish Rexes that are simply adorable!
      Petting them, playing a minute or two on the floor by throwing dice at them – that is very relaxing to me.
      FYI: These cats can fetch and bring toy mice to my feet!

      • Mandi Gilliam says:

        Yes, any negative energy around me and things go haywire !!! So that’s definitely a good tip. I also use breathing exersies to relieve my anxieties. And my animals help me get through a lot. They never stop loving me or needing me, as well as I never stop loving/needing them 🙂

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      My de-stressers are a long hot bubble bath with candles and mood music after hubby goes to sleep……..a good book to escape in…….sitting on the porch swing, watching nature in my isolated little valley……doing my stretches, and then dancing for a while (I may look goofy, but it sure feels good!)……..and talking to my daughters or friends. I also like to do crafts and DIY when I can get a few extra minutes here and there.
      THIS is also a great relaxer for me. Chatting with ya’ll. Sharing ideas.

    • My five best ways to relax.
      1. Have the hubby watch the baby so I can sit back and relax without having to chase him. lol.
      2. Take a nice warm bath without little ones trying to join me.
      3. Drink a nice warm cup of tea.
      4. Go for a walk, if it’s warm enough.
      5. Go shopping and let the hubby chase the baby around while I shop lol.

      • Raye Wiedner says:

        I had to laugh at the part about “without little ones trying to join me”……..I remember those days well lol

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      Relaxing to me is a good cup of coffee, an outdoor swing and a great book! But the other ways I’d love to relax if I could afford it, is a spa day! I’m imagining candles, low music, warm oil and a massage before getting a mani/pedi and my hair done! oh wow, that would be so wonderful!

    • Shopping shopping and shopping with a bit of reading and internet thrown in. I love to walk as well it relaxes me. No music no nothing just me nature and my thoughts.

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      HHHmmm this right here is one! I also like to read. Drinking a well made vanilla latte with a good book is so relaxing to me!! Used to be taking a hot bath but we no longer have a tub big enough for me since we bought our home. I love getting a massage too but it’s been years since I had one! That’s all I can think of!

    • stephanie jenkinks says:

      5 ways to relax for me is music hot bath coffee with you guys cooking and movies

    • I like to sit in the sun
      walk on the beach
      sip a cup of lemon tea
      listen to some music
      read to my children

  6. Mandi Gilliam says:

    This one is tough for me!! As I find it nearly impossible to find time for myself to relax. Here I am 10 days away from my surgery and I still haven’t figured out who is going to take care of me and the baby, while Jonathan works 9-5 shifts every weekday. Ugh!!!! Stress relieving tips are much appreciated. However I will say that a warm bath, talking to my friends, enjoying the outdoors during spring and fall, and just sitting alone in a quite room have proven most effective for me.

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      HI Mandi wow you have a lot going sweetie I hope all works out for you

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      Warm thoughts and wishes for a good outcome for you and your family Mandi. Do you have friends who could perhaps take turns helping out?

      • Mandi Gilliam says:

        Thank you Rae! That’s very kind of you 🙂 most if my closest friends live out if state, have a family of their own, and are unable to help. But I know they would if they were closer. Some of my other friends work 9-5 shifts as well, but they said they could help on their days off. It’s a LOOONG recovery period so I’m extremely stressed. I would probably need someone here everyday for atleast a month 🙁 So yeah I have no idea how this is gonna work

        • Raye Wiedner says:

          Mandi, if you have insurance, check into home care. One of my daughter’s had it with her coverage and she didn’t know. The other called and didn’t have it, so I don’t know what the difference is in coverage, but it’s worth looking into. The worst they can do is say no. You might also ask the social workers at the hospital, sometimes they can put you in touch with groups that could at least help with delivering meals or cleaning. Every little bit helps.

          • Mandi Gilliam says:

            My biggest hurdle is my 9 month old. After having brain/abdominal surgery (on the 24th). I will need help caring for myself! I have Medicaid and I will definitely give then a call to see what they can to if anything to help!! Thank you for your advice!! As for the hospital itself it is 3 1/2 hours away from home so I don’t think they will be able to help much but I will keep it in mind if I have to go back to the hospital after returning home! Thanks again <3

    • Best of luck to you. I always ask patients what they enjoy to do. Whether it is reading, watching tv whatever it is. Takes this and do this to relax. Do what you enjoy.

      • Mandi Gilliam says:

        I’m going to try and get a good story lined video game. It’s something I can really get involved with and help to keep pain off of my mind. Thank you for your support! <3

    • stephanie jenkinks says:

      you know you have my prayers my friend <3

      • Mandi Gilliam says:

        <3 you stephanie! Thank you for the prayers!! Many needed right now as I'm about to pull my hair out lol!!

    You may not know, but I LOVE African Violets. I grow them and have a huge collection of them.

    Look what I’ve just got pop up yesterday! I brought this one as a leaf back from my Europe trip and it’s just started to bloom!

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      That’s beautiful!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      that so pretty no flowers he out side yet we just got 10 inches of snow the other day but soon

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      Oh that’s beautiful! I was in healthcare for many years, and one of the family members of a patient I tended, was brilliant with African Violets. She had them everywhere and they were all so gorgeous. I used to tell her I’d come there even if it weren’t for work, because it always looked so happy with flowers all over.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      That is amazing! Now you have a piece of Europe with you everyday! My dream is to travel. But right now I have a full-time job and children so I think traveling will have to wait awhile. Someday though!

    • Megan Warren says:

      Very pretty!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      It is beautiful. Love that color.

    • gerry davison says:

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I only have 1 African violet but love it! My daughter has a few. I really think I should get a few more. How many do you have?

  13. CoffeeTime says:

    Here’s one more more picture from my collection of African Violets. These just took off like a greased lightening.

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      just the joy you get when your flowers start to bloom its just so neat to see them come open

    • Mandi Gilliam says:

      I can’t wait to see it fully bloomed!! You must post follow up pics 🙂 I love them!! <3

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      It is beautiful. It must be warm where you are! There is no going outside and growing plants here! I’m in northwest PA and it’s very cold. We had a terrible storm yesterday.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      That does it! I’m going to get more African violets! They are so beautiful. My mom and dad used to raise them all the time! They had so many!

    The way I relax is with a cup of hot tea and a good book I also enjoy relaxing in my hot tub with a night cap or taking my kids to the park, I also enjoy watching shows I have recorded while my kids are sleeping and my favorite way to relax is having my love message me until I fell asleep
