Ok, so you know that we are taking a marriage enrichment class at church. The teacher asked us to make a list of 3 things we want more of from our spouse. Doug, being who he is, set up a time last night for us to do our homework and discuss our lists.
I pondered this question all day yesterday. "What 3 things do I want more of from him?" It really was quite hard for me to do, and it made me really examine our relationship. I was most afraid of what he was going to come up with to be totally honest.
We had our talk last night, with no TV, no kids, no internet, no books, no distractions. Just us, a pizza, two buck chuck and a box of Kleenex. (The box of Kleenex made him nervous...)
It was great to have so much face time with him...this hardly ever happens. We get so busy with kids and house work, yard work, bills, TV, the phone, church and everything else that fills our time. It was strangly unnerving to sit in silence with him and just talk. It reminded me of the walks we used to take around TCC's neighborhood when we were dateing.
I'm not going to spill any details...just encourage all of you to try and find some silence with your spouse. I feel like I can see him...again
