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.
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
