Julie hosts Marriage Mondays at "Come Have a Peace.
Today she talked about "How to Fee the Flame" of your marriage and asks:
"If there's a spark between you and your hubby today, would you be ready to nurture that blaze? What can you do today to get ready to help build that flame?"
To that I say: We desparately need some time alone!
Doug has been working so much overtime to support our family. He also works swing-shift so his schedule changes every week. When he is home the kids are hanging all over him. Understandable. They miss him as much as I do. He's their Daddy.
I am a Stay-At-Home-Mom to our 9 and 3 year old daughters. I am constantly with my 3 year old. Since her big sister has gone back to school, she is now my shadow. Everywhere. All the time.
However, a husband and wife need some time alone. To talk, to be intimate, sometimes just to sit on the couch together and watch a movie. On the rare occasion maybe to go out together...alone.
Next Friday will be our 10th Anniversary! I've already mentioned to Grandma about a sleepover that night. Oh, how I look forward to it!
Disclaimer: I love my children very much and enjoy spending time with them.
