This collage is in my hallway…
My favorite one is on the top left and says, “Family, all because two people fell in love.”
Why is it so easy to forget that?
We get so busy and sidetracked with the bills and the babies, the laundry and the lasagna.
Days turn into years and we grow apathetic, forgetting the crazy wild passion that brought the two of us together.
We take each other for granted.
Long conversations sitting in the driveway when we were dating turn into short snotty comments we quip to one another as we pass in the kitchen.
Life catches us off guard. Flanks us when we’re least expecting it.
But then, a picture, a memory, sneaks its way into our view and we think about that young couple that fell in love so many years ago.
Remember that couple.
Get in touch with that couple.
Take them out to dinner, do something spontaneous with them and remind them of days long ago when they couldn’t wait to see each other.
Remind them of the long conversations on the phone.
The anticipation and thrill of the sound when their car turned into your driveway.
The day they got engaged.
Help that couple remember that the home, the family and the memories are all because two people fell in love.
And encourage them to do it all over again.
I’m praying for our marriages, Sue
