Some couples take togetherness to the extreme. They don’t understand that spending time apart can contribute to growth and differentiation. For a guy to get away for fishing or hiking or golf with friends can actually give him new energy and appreciation for the woman he loves. Women benefit from getting away as well.
I recently spent a weekend at beautiful Woodleaf attending a women’s retreat. I did a workshop on Saturday afternoon on “A Little Love Can Create Miracles”. I enjoyed making new friends and enjoying women young, old, single, married. We knew each other by first names and not by labels–all women coming together to celebrate our faith and love of God.
