The State of the Union

Borrowing a heavily paraphrased line from the United States Constitution: We the husband and wife, in order to form a more perfect union of our marriage, talked about a lot of our plans for 2010 tonight.

I borrowed this idea from a friend of mine. Once a year my friend and his wife would meet to discuss their marriage, their dreams and goals for the coming year, any concerns they had, and anything else they thought could have a significant impact and effect on their marriage and family.

Tonight I did that with my wife. It was our first annual State of the Union meeting. I’m so glad we did it; we left the discussion having pretty clear goals and items to work on in the coming year. We reviewed and established financial goals, spiritual goals, fitness goals, family goals, career goals, and personal goals. In some ways it felt like we were setting up new year’s resolutions, but it’s so much more than that.

So how about you? Have you had your family’s State of the Union meeting yet? It’s never too late!
