Daytime Dates

The other day my husband decided to work from home, that way he could finally attend one of our sons football practices. Since the start of the season, he had to work late on practice days.

He made a comment to me about how we should snuggle in the bed and watch a movie or something, but I shrugged him off with a “I’ve got too much to do today for all that mess.”

As I was eatting my breakfast, of course I  scrolled through Facebook, and came across a blog that was labeled “trigger warning”.

Of course, curiosity got the best of me and I read it, but I’m glad i did.

The writing was a woman stating how she wished she could be intimate with her husband again, and you never realizing when the last time you would be intimate with your spouse. She wrote how their bed had once been full of passion and where their children were conceived, but now it’s the place where her husband was dying.

I paused for a moment, made a bag of popcorn, and snuggled with my husband as we watched a movie.

I realized that we never get these moments alone together. It’s rare that he’s home while the kids are at school, and when he is we are both so busy catching up on things around the house.

It was so enjoyable…. I told my hubby we should definitely do it more often. It’s so easy to let life come between a marriage and before you know it, the time has passed. Make time for each other. Stay intimate, have midday movie dates for no reason at all, just for the fact of snuggling in the bed.

It’s worth it….. everything else can wait, but life and time doesn’t.
