Faithful Fridays – Being Faithful…

Last week, we started looking at my word for this year – well, a word I hope to live by in my marriage for the rest of my life.  My word for 2017 is faithful. Last night hubby was telling me of a friend who has had two extra-marital affairs and her husband, who found… Continue reading Faithful Fridays – Being Faithful…

Intimacy – Boxes
