It’s so easy to let life get in the way when we are going too many directions and one of the first things that tends to slip is our relationship with our partner. We push dates off into the future for lack of money, a sitter, or time. We fill our days and evenings so full that there is no time for re-connecting at the end of the day. Then we wonder why so many relationships fail. We wonder why we no longer know the person we wake up to every morning. We forget to make time and care for each other.
Make time today! Even five minutes to talk uninterrupted while the kids play quietly, a special treat or note set on their pillow, their car seat, lunchbox or laptop. Take just a few minutes or a few dollars and show them you care at least once a week.
It’s amazing what purposefully caring for your partner can do. No matter how crazy life gets remember the small things and make your relationship count.
