It was a whirlwind romance – everyone said so. My husband and I met October 24, 2008, and married a scant 10 months later. He swept me off my feet in a hundred little ways, which wasn’t easy… given the fact that he lived in New Hampshire and I lived in Washington. He’s a good one with the little things, the details of a romance as well as the bigger stuff of life.
Eight years later, we’re negotiating the responsibilities of 3-kids-and-1-on-the-way under the age of 7. The little things are easy to miss because, well…life. Diapers and double-digit addition and training wheels on small bikes take time and energy, and let’s not even get started on bedtime-toothbrush-wrestling. It should be an Olympic sport.
All the energy that used to go into the hundred little romantic things – well, it’s kind of used up. By the time we flop on the couch at the end of the day, we have the energy and the sparkle of the goldfish crumbs hiding under the cushions.
You might not be in this exact season of life, but I bet you have your own brand of busy. Whatever it is you’re juggling, a hundred ways to do anything is much too much. Don’t worry. How about 10 simple, little, practical ways you can show your wife she’s loved?
