Got a Minute?

in the generous life

There is a mom and pop restaurant about a block from my home.  My husband and I make time now and then to visit and share a dessert.  We talk about different discussions we are a part of on bulletin boards.  We talk about the kids or the garden.  We share our thoughts, generally laugh a lot, and just love on each other with encouraging words.

Not everyone has a restaurant a block from their home, but you can share a treat and you can find some time to talk, share about the things you are involved in, laugh a bit and love on each other.  What you do may not look at all like what my husband and I do.  You might have to sneak a treat in the bedroom after the kids are in bed.  You might have to talk by phone or email (God bless those folks who are serving in the military).  Maybe you’d rather talk as you snuggle in bed or as you share a drive to work.  The idea is to make that time for each other.  Share the ordinary things of life and love on each other a bit.

It doesn’t require a special day to express how much I love you … every ordinary day is more than special when I am with you. Author Unknown

I agree. These quite moments of conection in the hubbub of life help me to refocus on the sweeter things in life. :)

I have a personal goal of having at least one conversation with my husband every day that is not about the kids or things that need to be done. It sounds silly but it’s so easy to get caught up in such things and forget that we are friends first!
