I love to show my spouse 'acts of kindness' everyday. Whether it's greeting him at the shower with a warm towel or bringing him lunch, at work, I believe this is why we've been able to enjoy our relationship. It also shows our teenage son the respect, love and genuine feelings that we have for each other.
Visit About.com Marriage site for tips for showing kindness in your marriage. Also, consider signing up for the free 'Marriage Partnership' newsletter. You'll read about issues-like money, forgiveness, communication, commitment, sex, relationships and putting God first in your lives.

The words "spring cleaning" can make the neatest person cringe. They mean more work. As if cleaning all year long wasn't enough. Spring cleaning is more than just cleaning...it is deep cleaning. The kind of cleaning that most people do not have time for all year long. Since my expertise is cooking, I have decided to focus on dirt build up prevention tips for the kitchen....
1 - Baking soda or club soda will clean and shine stainless steel sinks easily. Simply apply directly to surface and scrub a dub dub.
2 - To Remove stubborn water spots from a stainless sink scrub with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol or vinegar.
3 - To freshen up your "white" porcelain sinks, place paper towels across the bottom of your sink and saturate with bleach. Let sit over night and rinse.
4 - After you've cleaned your refrigerator and freezer place an open box of baking soda in the back of each to help absorb odors for about a month.
5 - A few drops vanilla extract on a piece of cotton placed in the refrigerator will also help eliminate odors.
6 - Wipe refrigerator with vinegar after cleaning to help prevent mildew.
7 - Change your refrigerator light bulbs...that way you never have to worry about them burning out during the year.
8 - To clean baked-on food from a cooking pan, put a dryer sheet in the pan, fill with water, let sit overnight then sponge clean. The anti-static agents help weaken the bond between the food and the pan and the fabric softeners will soften the baked-on food.
9 - To clean burnt or scorched pans, sprinkle pans liberally with baking soda, adding just enough water to moisten. Let stand over night.
10 - To get those stubborn stains off of the inside of you microwave; spray liberally with two parts water and one part bleach, heat on high for 20 seconds and let stand for about an hour. The stains should come right off. For really stubborn stains heat for 30 seconds and let sit for 2 - 3 hours.
I hope that these tips make your life easier…
