Life is busy. 3 kids, running a business and a husband who travels a lot with work means that often the “conversations” I have with my husband are more like “instructions”.
So last night, my mum had the kids for a sleepover and we checked into Crown Towers for the night. Wow. It felt like the “olden days” early in our relationship when we would chat for hours and crack ourselves up with our hilarious jokes. It was just the circuit breaker we needed.
It reminds me of something someone once told me along the lines of “the most important thing a mother can do for her children is love their father”. I need to remind myself sometimes that this relationship is precious, and needs to be nurtured. Being too busy to hang out just doesn’t cut it. I want to be married to my darling husband forever, long after the kids have grown up and moved out.
So while you don’t have to splurge on a night in a hotel (although I highly recommend it if you can!) take a moment to tell your hubby you love him. Hold
his hand, maybe even give him a big sloppy kiss. What have you got to lose?
