Feeding our Marriage


     This morning, I got my first spanking in about 2 weeks.  Lash hadn't wanted to pass on his cold before my sleep study and he really felt pretty ill, too.  So today we got back to our normal routine.
     I couldn't help thinking that our marriage is like a living thing.  A plant needs nourishment, moisture, sunlight and room to grow.  So does our marriage.  We feed it with Love and Respect.  We give it room to grow when we are Honest and Trusting and Trustworthy.  We let in light when we show Kindness, Sympathy and Strength.   I look at DD as the water for our living marriage.  Some need a little, some a lot.  Some can go for long periods without it and then can be rescued just before they wilt.  Some wither and die when they can't get what they need.  Each couple has to find the mix of rules, dominance, connection, spanking, obedience, punishment and submission that will help their relationship thrive.
     We survived our little drought because we had a healthy living marriage to work with.  It grows better when we take care of it diligently every day and I hope we can keep nurturing it in the way we both love best - daily spankings, subtle signs of his dominance and my consistent obedience to the few rules we have.  The reward is a healthy, blooming thing of beauty.
     PS:  My sleep study is over and I should get my results in about 3 weeks.
     PPS:  We're going to visit our moms in the midwest next week and will be on the internet only sporadically depending on how things go.

Meow, That is such a cool picture that you posted!
I think you are totally right, you definately have to keep nurturing a marriage to keep it going.
I hope your study gives you the results you need to know what to do next and have a nice trip.

Hi Meow,

Your metaphors are great! Have a safe trip to the midwest. Pack your spices because there's only two there: salt and pepper! I grew up there, I can release their secret ;)

That's so very true, and I love the detailed comparison. I once wrote how marriage is like a watermelon. Hee hee.

Great post!

PS. Two weeks without spanking is my best record..lol.
