Well, it's officially FALL. The hustle and bustle has begun. We're off and running. Summer is over. School is in full gear. Life is beginning to get crazy again.
Here it comes... the soccer practices, back to school night, PTA meetings - and on it goes...
It's a whirlwind of "to-dos." But where does your marriage fit into all of that?
How much time do you make for your relationship? Is it even on the calendar?
With all these other commitments competing for attention, your marriage can end up forgotten, like the summer vacation pictures at the back of the junk drawer - LOST.
It usually doesn't get much attention until the signs of neglect become too hard to ignore. You begin to feel like those "two ships," as if you're roommates instead of the loving partners you once were.
It's no wonder. Neither of you is getting what you need and your marriage is certainly not getting what it needs to thrive.
Let's make sure your marriage doesn't get lost in the shuffle. You can plan to do things differently this fall. When you get those calendars out to schedule those basketball practices and business meetings, block some time in your schedule for your marriage. This could mean a Friday evening date night, a walk together around the neighborhood, or just some quiet time on the patio with no distractions.
Just like anything else that's important in your life, the effort you expend morphs into meaningful rewards. Nothing beats that feeling of closeness and connection with your significant other. But this is built over time and nurtured with every loving encounter.
So get your marriage on the top of that list and start reaping the rewards of a healthy and vibrant relationship.
