  • You’ve done gone to gettin’ personal, Ms. Shel. Tip #1 nailed me. Great tips, keep ’em coming. I am listening though not silent. 🙂

      I can relate, DiAne – on both counts! (For some reason, your comment smells a little like seafood – I can’t imagine why!)

  • I love #4 and it’s true in all relationships not just marriages!

    And I think it depends on the advice for #6, someone that had a bad relationship can give good advice on what not to do. 🙂

    • Shel Harrington

      That is true, Lisa. Although, if they were beyond marriage #2 I’d have to question whether or not they had pegged the right cause!

  • Great tips, Shel! Number 4 is so true, those telepathic signals usually get crossed.

    • Shel Harrington

      They do, Jill – which leaves us lost and wandering endlessly around the land of assumptions – so unproductive!

  • Great post, Shel. My favorite is #2–it never occurred to me that “listen” and “silent” had the same letters, rearranged. Now I’ll remember!

    • Shel Harrington

      Thanks, Marylin! I have a feeling that next time someone tells me to listen I’ll probably end up telling them about the great anagram instead – sometimes I have to work hard to walk the talk!

  • All excellent tips!

    • Shel Harrington

      Thanks, Dee Dee – I’m thinking about taking a few of them myself!

  • With no partner, just my two furry boys, I still think these are good tips for every day life – I should apply them all immediately!

    • Shel Harrington

      Pauline, I don’t think for a minute you’re going to stop saying what you think! Oh – I see your note said “should” not “will.” NOW things make sense!!

  • Hmm…I think I need to remember #1 a whole lot more often.
    Funny, we just had a conversation with our daughter last night about “silent” and “listen.”

  • Never realized “silent” and “listen” were anagrams. (I was probably talking when someone told me…) Love these tips. 😉

    • Shel Harrington

      Chuckling at that one (we really need a universal shorthand for “chuckling” – I have no suggestions at this point that don’t sound insipid, but I’m working on it!)

  • ahhhhhhhhhhhh #5 I am TERRIBLE about this, haha! Thanks Shel. Always enjoy a stop here. xoxo

    • Shel Harrington

      Thanks, Marie. I can relate with you on #5. Sometimes when Huz and I are shopping (we divide and conquer at the grocery store!) one of us will bring the other a greeting card to show what we would have received! Even though we don’t take it home,it was still good for an “awwwww!” moment!

  • Very good tips!! Thanks for sharing.

  • thanks for some wisdom and laughter to start out my day…
