Start Small

Start small, start collecting:

photos

song lyrics

poetry collections

spiritual resources

homemade or published works

powerpoint slide shows

YouTube links

Having these resources available at all times will make it easier to do any part of your day together.

“I keep a photo or story nearby and a song on my lips at all times of the day to add focus or to distract a person from perceived difficulties. The flow keeps moving forward at any time of the day during the morning routine of shower, dressing, preparing for breakfast, after breakfast, in the bathroom, while sitting out on the patio, while preparing a meal… It keeps us both entertained, connected, and builds trust during all kinds of tender and personal circumstances.”IMG_8366
