SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Seasons Greetings from the "Valley of the Sun," Scottsdale, Arizona!

He's back!

On August 16th, I noticed that my right hand and lower right arm were not functioning as they should. On Thursday, August 21st I checked myself in the emergency room at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. After numerous tests, including an MRI, a biopsy was performed. The biopsy revealed a very rare fungus infection (1 in 20 million) in the left hemosphere of my brain.

I am currently still an out-patient at Mayo, where I coninue to receive daily medication. The prognosis looks good. Several subsequent MRIs show the medicine is working! The fungus & the swelling around the fungus has significantly decreased. Although I am not fully recovered, I'm feeling much better and want to thank everyone who send the hundreds of e-mails of support and prayers.

Please continue to hold me in your thoughts and prayers!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Men Only - By far the most common and important way in which you can exercise your attention to your love partner is by listening. Listening is an act of love. It is unreasonable, and a breach of trust, to deny your lover's report of her feelings.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Resist being afraid to reveal your limitations to your partner. Yes, it's scary, and you are now a team. Your partner will almost always be the most dependable, the first in line to care, and the first to help, if help is requested. Often all that is needed is someone who will listen.

First, it is okay to make yourself vulnerable. Next, working together on strengthening limitations develops character. It promotes unity by creating a common bond of sharing that helps each other be the best they can be for themselves and for the relationship.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  A great relationship begins with you. Make yourself better than you ever thought you could be and you will find the relationship you have with your love partner getting better. This works especially well when two people are focusing on working on themselves; together. Then, the relationship you have with the one you love can only grow and prosper.

Only selfish people think only of themselves. When you really love yourself you cannot help wanting to give some of your love away. Other people have a need to be loved. So do you. People are like that. Like attracts like. What you become you attract. Want a great love partner? Become a great love partner! Work on this one. Sharing love with someone else must only and always begin with you. Learn to relate to yourself better.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  We often cannot see that we have choice. No matter what happens we always have choice. The hurt we experience sometimes keeps us at a distance from responsible choices. We can move through the pain of a changing relationship much more rapidly when we remember that we are never without choice.

From the book, LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing by Larry James.

Complete information about this book

Imperfect Harmony: How to Stay Married for the Sake of Your Children and Still Be Happy - Joshua Coleman - "Contrary to the wisdom of pop psychology, it is not essential to your or your children's well-being for you to have a great marriage," writes psychologist Coleman in the opening to this frank (and, to borrow from Lewis's foreword, even "radical") guide for struggling couples. In prose studded references to recent research and case studies from his own practice, Coleman clearly and compassionately outlines the stresses on contemporary marriages; discusses the need for spouses to grieve for what their marriages don't offer them; urges them to understand how their parents' marriages affect their own and to work on changing their own attitudes and beliefs instead of trying to change their partners'; describes depression's effects on marriage; covers sexual difficulties, affairs and "different kinds of marriages"; and numerous other topics.

Larry's Review: This is a "must read" book. Highly recommended!
