Laughter is good medicine for our souls. We connect when we laugh together and enjoy each other’s company.
My husband and I have learned that we have to be mindful to keep fun and laughter in our home. When we are dealing with some tough issues — we have a funny movie night. We laugh. Share popcorn. Laugh some more.
Our struggles don’t disappear because we watch a movie and laugh but our hearts are lighter. We’ve spent some time connecting and that’s good stuff for any couple.
Sometimes we just NEED A BREAK from the hard stuff. We can get so easily wrapped up in the details of the day that we can feel overwhelmed and then transfer the negative feelings onto our spouse and our marriage.
Moments of laughter won’t erase your hard times but they will build into your marriage and give you reprieve from allowing the trials to consume you. Make time to laugh together.
