Each year one of the joys of living in the woods is observing the parade of wildflowers. Trillium, Wild Geranium, and Swamp Buttercup are currently blooming. My friend Judy, a gifted wildlife and nature photographer (see woodlandwondersphotography.com) came to visit me last week and took this beautiful picture of a trillium.
When my husband and I were first getting acquainted, we discovered common interests. We both connected with God through nature and loved spending time in the North Woods of the Midwest. When we retired, we were unified in our decision to leave the metropolis and move to a little cottage surrounded by the forest, near a beautiful lake. In the discussion questions at the end of my book, Beginning Again, I encourage couples to discuss the importance of finding and forging common interests to share with one another. Are common interests a component of married intimacy ?
