Today I am missing someone. Actually not just today, but quite often I find myself missing this person and wishing to sort of reconnect if you will. And the catch is, I see them pretty much all the time too! No really I do... It's my husband!
Do you ever get so busy and caught up with the ins and outs of every day life that you almost feel like you're just going through the motions? It happens to all of us I'm sure. And especially so for those of us that are parents of young children. Life just never stops moving! As a wife and stay at home mother of three little boys (none of whom are school age yet) I know all too well what it's like to get buried under the hum drum days of breakfast, play, lunch, play, nap, play, dinner, play, bed, BREATHE. Often times with that 'breathe' comes a shower, a little tv, a glass of wine, dishes... Rarely do they include a sit-back-with-my-husband-and-just-be kind of 'breathe'. But they should! Don't you think? Being a parent is tough. Being a spouse is tough! I feel like I'm constantly struggling to find balance a midst all our chaos and it's all too easy to forget about finding time as a couple in that craziness. While we try to give our best as parents, part of giving our best is being our best. My best includes nurturing my relationship with my husband and reminding each other that without little boys, we still exist. After all, I did marry the guy and if I had to do it all over again...I'm pretttty sure I still would! ;-)
Do you ever find yourself caught up in the monotony of day to day life? How do you stay connected with your partner? If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear!
