Simple Moments

00:00

Description

Don't overlook the seemingly small, simple routines you have with your spouse. Are you grateful for every moment?

Some relationships become so familiar we can tend to forget, rush, and assume. We feel like we’ll have forever, and feeling like we have forever cheapens the right now feelings.

Each morning, I have a routine with my husband. He asks me to help him pick a tie. He then goes away to fuss with it and soon returns with a flipped up collar and a pressed down, knotted tie. He needs me to fold the collar over.

It’s just a moment, but it’s something I would miss with the deepest ache imaginable if today was the last of those moments.

Our relationship isn’t perfect, but great love is two people making the choice to be a match. To fold his collar over, savor the gift of this simple moment, and find myself grateful.
