Make sure to “catch” a time…to date!


We seized the day and went on a lunch date!

When you’re married for a long time, there is something that sometimes gets put on a shelf.  And that something is called dating.

Yep.  Rich and I are totally guilty of it.

In fact, on days when we don’t have kids, we’re all like, “Yes.  I’m taking a nap.  See ya later!”  And off we each go to different areas of the house.  It’s as if the other doesn’t exist.

Now, mind you, there are moments when I am HAPPY to get rid of my husband 😉  Okay—just kidding.  Totally happy when he’s around…and gives me space.

But, for the most part, we greatly enjoy each other’s company.   We, like many of you, however, get caught up in this thing called Life.  And this thing called Life has a way of making us…well…sleepy.

Especially with a wee one in the house.

And sometimes we really have to make a spontaneous effort to take those moments, when we are together and alone, to really enjoy one another’s company (I’m not talking bedroom talk here, folks.  Naughty people.  Lol).  Plain and simple “being in the presence of my special someone” time.

Therefore, today I want to encourage you-a time may come about when you have one million other things on your plate.  You may have one million other places where you think you need to be.  The home may have one million things that need doing.

But that is okay.

Because if you have that moment—forget about those one million other things that need to be done, cleaned, places where you need to go, and focus on ONE…

The one person that should be the most important to you—your spouse!

And take the time to be.

After all, the lists of “To Dos” will still be there two hours later.  That’s Life.

But in the midst of Life, don’t forget to take the moments that Life gives you—and enjoy.   Go!  “Catch” a date.
