After almost two months of married life, my hubby and I finally had a weekend with just each other. We spent Saturday and Sunday hanging out around the house, cleaning, talking, taking a couple of naps, and just getting reconnected.
Even though we see each other every day, with our busy schedules, it’s not like we always have a lot of quality time alone together. Some days the most contact we have with one another is when our elbows brush as we’re packing our lunches for the next day!
We’ve noticed that the times we’re most likely to annoy each other a little bit, or bicker about little things, are the times when we feel a little distant because we haven’t had enough time to connect. My husband will think the tired look on my face at the end of a long day means I don’t want to talk to him, or I’ll hear a single tone in his voice that makes me think he’s not happy to see me (when in reality he’s probably just thinking about something he wants to fix around the house).
Usually when it feels like we’re not quite clicking, it’s a sign that we need to sit down and talk, or at least hug each other and pretend we’re getting along for awhile, until we really are again!
I think this is true in most relationships. Even though it’s healthy to have outside interests, at the end of the day, you need to remember to stay connected with each other. With all of the distractions everywhere, you need to take the time to remember why you’re together, and that you will continue to be together through life’s ups and downs (and everything in between). Be grateful for those special people in your life, because they’re the ones who make life so sweet!
Love, Hope, & Prayers,
