If you have ever seen the movie, "What About Bob?", you know the phrase "baby steps". Bill Murray plays a therapy patient who follows his doctor out to his vacation home because he's nervous about being alone. It's very charming, and Bill Murray is delightful. It's a comedy.

This morning, my husband came to my room, yes, we've had separate rooms for a while now, and he held me and we talked. We've been together a long time through many ups and downs. I remember early in the relationship that I'd sometimes jump out of his car at a stoplight in the middle of a fight and walk home. Well, I'm maybe a little wiser now and certainly older and less willing to walk home. 🙂 But instead of yelling and blaming this morning, we talked softly. I cried a little, told him I'd been re-examining my codependency issues. I didn't talk long, but he listened. He heard me. We made a plan for time together tonight. He kissed me and told me we were going to be okay. Then he went into the kitchen and did the dishes. I thought, "Okay, it will have to be like this. Little baby steps and appreciation for each one."

Rejoice in every little step.

Baby steps are good--especially when they are in the same direction. And you take them together on your journey. Good luck.
