Repost @VictoriaOsteen // “If your relationship isn’t what you’d like it to be, we recommend a good dose of humor, laughter, and joy. We know the pressures of life can weigh on the best of marriages and test the love of even the most devoted, but it might help you to remember why you fell in love in the first place. Remember the things you enjoyed doing together, the fun and the laughter that made you want to go from being single to being a couple. If you bring that joy back into the home, you will see a freshness in your relationship. Find the humor in everyday moments. Make laughter a lifestyle choice. Welcome joy into your home as a permanent resident.” #OurBestLifeTogether
