Connect Daily

I just had coffee with my husband.

We do that most every day. We break during the afternoon, drink coffee (sometimes eat a treat), and talk. We talk about our writing. Sometimes we talk and laugh about our grandson’s antics. Other times we dream and plan. It doesn’t really matter much what we talk about. It’s a daily ritual that allows us to connect and stay current with each other.

Connect Daily - Create meaningful daily rituals with your sweetie.

Daily rituals add a level of intimacy. They remind us that we are connected to someone we love on a frequent basis. They don’t have to be difficult or take much time. You could share coffee the way we do or you could ask a question at the dinner table or pray snuggled up in bed each night.

Do you have any daily rituals? Are there any you would like to start? If so, invite your husband to join you and then try again another day to see if it’s something you want to do on a regular basis.

I was taken by the power that savoring a simple cup of coffee can have to connect people …  Howard Schultz

    • I would think that is true of any significant stressor. It’s too easy to move away instead of together (which is where the real strength is). It’s so important to remind each other that you are there for each other.

  1. You had me at coffee! LoL!

    I had to skip mine today. But I would so love to see my ADHD husband sit down and talk, coffee or cola.

    After 30 years together I can laugh at the idea. Years earlier I could not. Growth by God’s grace!

    Our go-to is a walk through a quaint local downtown. We’ve been doing this for a long time and have a treasure chest of memories.
    Unfortunately, we can’t do it everyday, but getting there once a week is all the sweeter.

    Maybe when we’re old and can’t walk so good we’ll sit and talk.
