Encouraging Words

It's amazing when my 5-year-old comes home talking about the history behind MLK day. When I was in Kindergarten, we learned our color...

After 9 years of marriage, one wonders where time goes and how fast it will fly into the future. You also wonder if there will be any other dimension added to your relationship with your spouse.

At this stage, most women I know either really complain about their other half - as they're not in a happy marriage. Or they still have that glow about them when they talk about their DH.

I would have to say that we're not your typical couple and that's a good thing in many ways. Our schedules keep us coming and going so much that we don't get a lot of quality time together, but we still strive for couple time whereas most just don't care anymore.

For me, I don't want to get lazy in my relationship. I want to make sure my husband knows how much I appreciate him and love him, by telling him everyday how much I love him. BUT I don't think that's enough. It's easy to say those words to pacify one's partner. The hard part is to put forth effort to demonstrate how much the relationship means to you.

I think monthly date nights are a must! Especially after bringing kids into the equation, because we all know that once we become parents - it's all about our child's needs. Maintaining that one on one connection with our spouse is so vital, and I'm guilty of not making that a priority as much as I should.

Striving for couple time is good, but actually making it happen is another. So on our 9 year anniversary, we made a pact to make it out at least once a month for a dinner date. We really tried in August to make our monthly date night, but didn't succeed.

So tonight, we're out on the town - dinner and movie for momma! I'm a happy girl. Not only because I'm out with the man I love but because he's dating me again.
