WOW!


It is fantastic!
I'm sorry that I have not been back blogging yet. I just wanted to give a little update that all is swell!

Thank you so much for your kind words, thoughts, empathies, prayers and encouragements. It really feels good to know that you are concerned for me.

We need some more time to focus on ourselves and what we have learned and practise the concepts with the tools we have been given.

It feels great. I feel like a new honeymooner again.

I can't say enough good about WW Marriage Encounter weekends. If you ever get the opportunity, I would encourage you to take it up. It is even better for good marriages. You will definitely gain something from it.

It is not just for Catholics. It is for any religion and it is offered in about 80 countries worldwide. I think I recall that Spain and Belgium were the first countries that had it around 1969. The first city it was offered in Canada in was Ottawa in 1973.

I haven't had time to look at the websites above, but they're there for your perusal.

Again, thank you so much for your comments. I feel really blessed to have a supportive Internet network including yourselves.

Sigh*(of relief) Before I go to bed I just wanted to check if you gave a sign of life and am happy you did ! and even a very good one ! these groups can indeed help a lot to get out of a crises. You see each other in a completely new way.

Great news! I'm so glad that it worked well for you!

Don't think about us, take your time, we'll still be here when you return :-)

Mar sends her best wishes too, she couldn't reach your blog for some reason.

Everything OK ?

I am glad it went so well. I have wanted to go to one many times but life is so busy and our schedules always seem to clash. Hubby and I have talked about it in the past and he is always willing. Maybe we will be able to after the summer.

I agree with Gattina's comment that these are great ways to view each other in a different way!
