Spending time with your spouse

I had an epiphany yesterday.

How much time do we spend with our spouse where we really spend time with them?  Not just going home and watching TV with them, not just watching a movie, actually spending time with them?

Just spending time in the same room as someone isn’t building or improving the relationship – there’s no interaction there.  You really need to take time out and do stuff together.  My wife and I went to dinner last night and then drove around El Paso.  We turned off the cell phones, turned off the computers and the iPads, and just hung out with each other.  Best date night we’ve had in a long time!

Sometimes we get so caught up in what we are doing and forget to really spend time with each other.  It can happen to anyone.

Don’t let it.
