A Little Man Wife and Dog Humor For Your Day

Stumbled across this little joke today during lunch from the archives of Divine Soul and I laughed so hard I just had to share. I won’t blow the punch line but let’s just say I really hope The Man doesn’t find this more amusing than I did. (Smiles!)

A man was leaving a cafe with his morning coffee when he noticed a most Unusual funeral procession A funeral coffin was followed by a second one About 50 feet behind the first. Behind the second coffin was a solitary man Walking with a black dog. Behind him was a queue of 200 men walking in Single line. The man couldn’t stand his curiosity.

He approached the man walking with the dog, “I am so sorry for your loss, And I know now is a bad time to disturb you, but I’ve never seen a funeral Like this with so many of you walking in single line. Whose funeral is It?”

The man replied, “Well, that first coffin is for my wife.”

“What happened to her?”

The man replied, “My dog attacked and killed her.”

He inquired further, “Well, who is in the second coffin?”

The man answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog attacked and killed her also.”

A thoughtful moment of silence passes between the two men. Then the first One asks in excitement, “Can I borrow the dog?” The second one says “Get in line!”

Michelle Obama Says Laughs Make Her Marriage Work (Are You Having Enough Fun Together?)

michelle obama marriage adviceLast week at a White House luncheon First Lady Michelle Obama revealed a few secrets about what makes her marriage so solid. I’m absolutely loving what she had to say! In case you missed it she said:

On the key to a happy marriage: “A lot of laughing. I think in our house we don’t take ourselves too seriously, and laughter is the best form of unity, I think, in a marriage.”

On spending time together: “So we still find ways to have fun together, and a lot of it is private and personal. But we keep each other smiling and that’s good,”

On her man, the President: “[Barack is] very romantic. He remembers dates, birthdays. He doesn’t forget a thing, even when I think he is. I’ll have a little attitude. I give him a little attitude, but he always comes through.”

This advice comes from an iconic woman whose marriage is 19 years strong ladies! And I can’ lie, it makes me smile to read it because our relationship is all about having fun together. We can of course be serious when the time calls for it, but if we don’t have to, I can assure you we won’t be. I truly believe that laughing with and at each other is a key component of our happiness and a part of my marriage that I pray last forever. What exactly do we do to keep the laughs coming? Well we…

…never ever take ourselves too seriously. There’s no reason to be uptight about anything when you’re married. If something’s funny, we stop and take a moment to laugh about it. Even if we’re in the middle of what was a heated debate. If it’s funny, we laugh, end of story. (Sometimes even to the point of tears.) Continue reading

How I Showed My Husband Some Love On Valentine’s Day

Secret Love Notes I Left My Husband for Valentine's Day

Despite his best efforts to talk me out of getting him a gift I was still determined to show my husband some extra special love on our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife.

My master plan was as follows: Step 1. I woke up super early and planted little love notes and instructions throughout the house where I knew he’d see them as soon as I got up. I went a overboard and included a “Thirsty? You make me hot too!” note on the fridge handle, an “open me now” note on the medicine cabinet where his first card was hidden inside, a “Call me at 6a.m. to say you love me” note on his cell phone, and a “Drive safely, but hurry home, someone misses you already!” not on his steering wheel, among others. Step 2. I took my time and wrote heartfelt handwritten notes inside each of the two cards I carefully selected for him. Step 3. Just when he thought I’d done my bit for the day I came home with a “Be Mine” goodie bag filled with cologne, love scratch offs, his all-time favorite cookies, and chocolates. Continue reading

(Practically) Ancient Marriage Advice that Still Applies

Inevitably, love will be on your brain today.  So, here’s some (very old, but still very true) food for thought for all you married couples out there on Valentine’s Day.

“Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Believe the best rather than the worst. People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them. Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends. Please hand this down to your children and your children’s children: the more things change, the more they are the same.” -- Jane Wells, Written in 1886

Never Marry But For Love Poem

” Never marry but for love;
but see that thou lovest what is lovely.
He that minds a body and not a soul
has not the better part of that relationship,
and will consequently lack
the noblest comfort of a married life.

Between a man and his wife nothing ought rule but love.
As love ought to bring them together, so it is the best way
to keep them well together.

A husband and wife that love one another
show their children that they should do so too.
Others visibly lose their authority in their families by
their contempt of one another, and teach their children to be
unnatural by their own examples.

Let not enjoyment lessen, but augment, affection;
it being the basest of passions to like
when we have not, what we slight when we possess.

Here it is we ought to search out our pleasure,
where the field is large and full of variety,
and of an enduring nature; sickness,
poverty or disgrace being not able to
shake it because it is not under
the moving influences of worldly contingencies.

Nothing can be more entire and without reserve;
nothing more zealous, affectionate and sincere;
nothing more contented than such a couple,
nor greater temporal felicity
than to be one of them.”

– William Penn (date unknown)
