Wow! This board has been beyond DEAD the last 2 days. Everyone on vacation, I guess.

I'll get things started. Best things. Sorry it is just too hard for me to stick to one so I am going to cheat....
1. Companionship/friendship
2. Having someone to do things with, to explore this world of ours, to travel, not having to be alone, etc.
3. Working together to achieve a common goal i.e. being debt free, helping put kids through college, having and raising children, etc.
4. Learning about life, God, this world of ours from each other and through the sharing of our experiences and knowledge gleaned from all the sources out there
5. Having someone to talk with about what is going on in life. For example, @threesacrowd and I talk every day about this pandemic and the ramifications it is having on our lives, really nice when you can agree on issues that are controversial
6. Regular sex and lots of it!

If I had to go with just one, combine # 1 and # 6.

Worst things.
1. When you hurt or when you hurt your spouse
2. Having an argument, not being able see eye to eye on something
3. For me, I love my sleep and I hated the period when the kids were babies and couldn't sleep through the night, even though it affected DW more than I, I still sleep lightly, often woke up too and struggled to get back to sleep, not sure how mothers do this night after night!! You have more than my respect here all mothers everywhere!
4. Struggles with kids who "just aren't getting it" even after lots of counseling, advice and input and continue to make the same mistakes

If I had to go with just one, go with # 1

Vacation would be nice! But I am crazy busy with a house full of company for a graduation weekend. I can get on and read most things, but haven't had much time to give deep thought to anything, which the last two QOTDs require that. :)
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, to find comfort, to survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years... and then she did something new.

HTD- sometimes I'm not sure what to write & wait for another person to be the guinea pig.

That's hilarious @Beccaloo! Short, concise and so true!

I'm scratching my head....

Where did the @NWNL quote (about the kids) that Beccaloo quoted at 12:39 (Central time) come from????

My error!
I wrote my reply within his quote, so it's credited like that.
His questions, my reply about kids.
I have gone into my original post & edited that.

Oh, thanks for the clarification.

So you are the one that said that.... That makes it all the more funny (to me at least) :lol: I guess that part of what makes it funny is that I thought that @NWNL could well have said it.....
