My husband, son and I just recently moved to a small town (around 3,600 people). We are within walking distance of the post office and have a PO Box for our mail (they don’t deliver to our house because we are so close and it’s just that small of a town). Every day or so my husband walks to pick up the mail and I’m making the effort to go with him. I need the exercise and we need the couple time. It’s lovely to wander there, holding hands and just talking about what’s on our minds. We’ve stopped at a few of the little shops on the way (3 ears of corn for a $1 were a nice addition to dinner one day).
Honestly, it would be easy to let my husband make the trip by himself. I have work to do online and around the house. We’ve just moved and there is a whole pile of boxes in the garage mocking me. But then, I have today to be with my husband. It’s a wise choice to break from whatever I am doing to walk with him.
I encourage y’all to make the effort to spend time with your husband. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, just be there. Hitch a ride when he’s running errands. Walk around the block in the cool of the evening. Snuggle on the couch and share from your day.
