It is no secret that Caroline and I love cemeteries. We told you we were “atypical” marriage mentors, right?
I know it’s a bit morbid for some people, but we find cemeteries to be very peaceful and quiet. We love the architecture and messages of some of the statues, memorials, monuments, and tombstones.
We are curious of the stories of the dead strangers we pass, and often speculate what was their life like between the dashes of the beginning and the end dates.
But mostly we love cemeteries because they give us perspective. A silent walk among the dead clears our minds, forces us to think of things that matter, and make us ponder the legacy we are creating.
One unique exercise we occasionally encourage couples to do is to write a eulogy for your spouse.
This is more of an exercise in appreciation. It forces them to think back over the years and write down all the good. Once written, they read the eulogies to each other. #meaningful
#freebie – The walk in the cemetery also reminds us…”until death us do part”.
