It seems that our lives keep getting more and more complex. We have more activities, more commitments, more friends etc... Sometimes, I'm just overwhelmed by the house, kids, work, needs of others that I forget to reflect. At times I realize how long it has been since Kevin and I have really connected and checked in with each other. I look back and I wonder, "what message am I sending him?" I know there are times that I've been so busy with everything else that I'm exhausted at night, I go to bed without saying much at all....maybe a hushed "I love you" as I'm drifting off. Can you relate to that busy life?
We all know deep down that our relationship with God should be our first priority but our very next relationship check should be that of our spouse. Is it fresh, alive, and growing? I hate to admit, there are times in our 24 years that I have to say my focus was on just about everything else but! I'm making a leap that you may go through times like that as well.
I will tell you that Kevin, is the love of my life...he makes my day....he is my best friend....I love to think of seeing him when I walk in the door.....I think of him during the day and can't wait to reconnect at the end of the day. But there are times that I don't think I send that message at all, so, how does he know? Here are a few fun ways I let him know.....
- text him a couple of times a day....let him know that I can't wait to see him, I think he's the best husband, father etc..., and sometimes it's an invitation for intimacy which also holds me accountable at the end of a long day!
- place a post-it-note in places that you know he'll find throughout his day. Sometimes I'll put one in a book he's reading, or in his work items, or in a drawer his workout gear is in, or in his shoes, or on the steering wheel.
- I love to use a dry-erase marker and write him a note on the bathroom mirror. Sometimes it's just an encouraging message and sometimes it's more intimate.
These are quick and easy ways to let him know that he is on my mind, that I think of him often, and that I LOVE him and want to be with him. That is so important for our men to know that we think he's the best and we long to connect with them!
So, here's your challenge.....
