It’s no surprise with our hectic schedules that Tim and I getting time together is pretty scarce. Our evenings are nonexistent and our weekends are usually filled with all the things that didn’t get accomplished during the week. We try to spend as much time with the kids as possible, and that often means we forgo time for just the two of us.
As a nice gift, my sister in law and her husband offered to watch the kids today so that we could go out. We haven’t been out in ages, and at first we couldn’t decide what to do, but finally came around to going to a movie. We chose Wonder Woman and went to our local theater, which we hadn’t been to in years. After the movie, we grabbed some sushi to go, brought it back to the house, and ate a quick dinner before grabbing the kids this evening.
In the craziness of life, it is so easy to neglect some of the most important things in our lives, but making time to invest in a marriage is absolutely critical. I don’t want to be that couple in twenty years, when our kids have moved out, and we look at each other and wonder who that stranger is. Tim’s my best friend and I am his. We plan to keep it that way. 🙂
