Last week my wife and I were pretty busy several days in a row. We work in the same place and see each other all day, but it just felt like it had been weeks since I had had a conversation with her. We were "ships passing through the night," as I once heard it described, and I felt a little lonely.
So one night when we were getting ready to fall into the same routine of just getting ready for bed and drifting off to sleep, I asked her if we could sit and talk. When her face showed sign of concern, I assured her it wasn't about anything, but that I just missed her and wanted to talk to her.
It was good catching up with her. Though we knew exactly what the other had been doing the few previous days, it was good to hear about how she was feeling about those events, and it was good to share with her the things that were on my mind as well. I love being friends with my wife, and sometimes life gets so busy we miss the opportunities to enjoy that friendship.
How long has it been since you have initiated a catching up time with your wife? When was the last time you sat on the couch together with the TV and computers off and just talked? Doing this is a small way to remember why you love her so much, and it's always good to remind yourself of that.
