I guess today I feel like using my degree ~ not the deodorant,
I'm more of a secret girl if you really want to know ☺.
But this morning, I was thinking about marriage..... my marriage.
My hubby and I have been married for 10 years, we have 3 precious kiddos, 1 crazy dog and a roof over our heads. Perfect right?
I'm not going to go into details, but like most marriages and relationships, ours has had its share of ups and downs.
But one thing that makes a HUGE impact on our relationship is random acts of kindness.
Huh? Aren't those the nice things you do for strangers?
Well, think about it. Do you remember when you first started dating that special someone and a phone call could make your heart jump and your stomach turn? Or when that special someone would reach out and grab your hand while you were walking ~ just because they wanted to touch you and have you close. How about the simple act of getting ready for and going on a date.
Now, when was the last time you phoned your significant other just to tell them you loved them without talking "business" ? Or when you gave them a compliment rather than a critique? When was the last time you had loving physical contact ~ you know holding hands, a hug, or a quick shoulder rub instead of a belly poke or a smack on the rear?
Leave a note ~ be it a wish for a good day, a good luck or a love note. Leave it in their car, on their pillow somewhere they will find it.
Greet them at the door when they come home ~ you would greet a stranger if they came to your door.
Give a hug, hold hands on a walk, rub their shoulders ~ let them know you want them near.
