14 Days of Love: Just Talk

Enjoy each other and your family. Just talk and communicate with each other and learn from it

14 days of love during Valentines season is useful for every marriage and relationship. Here are 14 things to enjoy together.

Just Talk!

What we’ve got here is (a) failure to communicate

There are times in my life I really wonder about and the quote above, from the movie Cool Hand Luke, explains it all.

Mr. G and I are big tv watchers. We don’t care to go to the movies or travel much and we love some of the entertainment from tv. He loves his sports and I love old movies.

We both love football, but you can’t watch that for hours at a time. During the Super Bowl pre-game, this question was asked, “Why do you love football?”  I love football because its fun watching it with Mr. G because we have opposing teams, we can talk about the game and enjoy each others company.

But, there comes a time when you need to turn the tv off and just sit back and TALK.  I read somewhere the tv is on an average of 7+ hours a day!

Remember when you were dating and you couldn’t wait to talk to him/her?  You would rather be with your date, then sit and watch tv.

Mr. G and I met online many years ago.  So, we had a long distance relationship before we ever met.  Oh, I couldn’t wait until lunchtime for Mr. G to call me at work or later that evening when we would talk on the phone again.  We were best friends before we met the first time and it was like we knew each other for years.  I treasure that part of our life so much.

I honestly think we all could really benefit from not watching so much tv.  Not only because some of the content is not what Mr. G and I really care to see, but what is it really doing to our minds and hearts.  When the tv is off during the day, I just love the quite.  I have thought many times the amount of time I have lost in my life from watching tv and could’ve been doing something much more productive.

Just Talk

Here are a few things we can benefit from not having the tv on:

1. Talk more and form a deeper relationship
2. Sleep better because the tv is NOT relaxing
3. Learning to communicate with others
4. Just loving our lives and being more content with it

One other thing tv is doing to our lives is………. it’s making us unhealthy!!!   Eating in front of the tv instead of enjoying dinner time with the family, playing video games and not participating in activities and also making it our children’s babysitter.  I was guilty of this!!

Enjoy each other and your family and just talk.

Do small things with great love!

Enjoy the love,

    1. I would love to spend a lot more time away from the tv. I do enjoy certain things and I really don’t need to be watching the news anymore. Only makes me angry. Thanks for stopping by

  1. Looooove this! We got rid of satellite/cable several years ago, and rarely miss it. We still watch DVDs and things on Netflix here and there. The resulting time together has strengthened all our family relationships. And my FAVORITE thing to do in my free time is hang out with my husband over a cup of coffee (or three) and talk. We are apt to lose all track of time — but that’s not always a bad thing. 🙂
