This post is absolutely golden –your message and your images, both! I believe that kindness is the single most important factor in any relationship.

Beautiful post and images! A very good reminder!

How beautiful and inspirational. I feel exactly the same way … if kindness is our intention, it’s all good. My husband and I just celebrated our 40th and we greet each other in exactly the same way as you described in your first paragraph. Thank you … and your images are beyond stunning.

Beautiful images and wise words!

Oh my, these photos brought tears to my eyes….they are so gorgeous. My husband and I have been married 34 years. We understand that while every single day is not going to be rainbows and butterflies, we are in this for the long haul and keep central, common values in the forefront. Small things matter in a marriage.

Such gorgeous photos and yes, I agree, I smile and a kind welcome home are very important!

I’m really enjoying this series of posts – reminding me to tend to my marriage and focus on kindness. Your images are stunning. I’d love to see you taking these photos – as it looks as though you must be lying on your stomach to get these views – another dedicated photographer!

11/31 & 1440 {111} :: Kindness And Those You Love

there’s an expression that goes something like, we treat those we love the worst. i was completely stunned when i first heard these words… why, for goodness sake, would we ever treat those we love the worst? i have some pretty good guesses why. because we feel we can be our truest, rawest selves in […]

I love this post. “Treat those we love the best.” Absolutely! I think it boils down to mindfulness.

Viv @ within the Frame - October 17, 2014 - 2:21 pm

So agree with your thoughts we should treasure the ones we love the best.

Sarah - October 17, 2014 - 4:46 pm

Great things to remember.

lisa - October 17, 2014 - 5:22 pm

What a beautiful post. Truly inspiring words. I’ve also noticed that we treat those closest to us the worst while going out of our way for complete strangers. I believe you hit the nail on the head. If we all would remember how fleeting life is, we’d probably act much differently.

Donna - October 19, 2014 - 12:42 pm

Just what I needed to read this morning. You put into words, what I’ve been trying to express – this desire to become more mature and treat those I love with kindness. Beautiful photos and thoughtful words. I’ll be back for more!

[…] Kindness & Marriage – Finding Serendipity. I try to remember this. Sweet Husband is my greatest ally in this world. I need to remember to treat him that way. […]

  || o n e. || there is not one fiber in my being that is interested in jumping off 23 foot cliffs into the cool waters of Cherokee Lake. not one. it will never happen. it’s not fear of heights nor lack of courage that keeps me from this accomplishment; i am just NOT.INTERESTED. […]

Beautiful… as always…

Kim S - October 16, 2014 - 11:28 am

I love this. No cliff jumping or marathons for me either. I am in the process of a potential career move and the stress of decision making is upon me. Thanks…good timing as usual. Beautiful photos, too.

Buckeroomama - October 17, 2014 - 1:30 pm

Such gorgeous, gorgeous colors!
