What if...

What if we all wrote about the one we love? If we shared stories of our history both happy and sad but always speaking in a positive light? I think it would remind us of who it was we fell in love with and rekindle those feelings again.

We tend to forget the things they have done in the past that made us so thankful for having found them. It's easy to get caught up in the business of today and the 'me' feeling we phase into after a few years of marriage. But back in the beginning it was all about them. Finding out who they are and who they were that made them that fantastic catch. Lingering on every word of their stories as though each one was a newly wrapped gift sitting in front of you. They had your full attention. Do we do that anymore after years of listening? Look them in the eye and expectantly, silently wait for their words?

Remember how just the thought of kissing them could make you sigh? Kissing, real kissing is a thing we tend to lose after years too. I heard a great way to rejuvenate a marriage is to have a 5 second kiss every morning before leaving for work and when you came home. It's kind of hard to be mad at someone for forgetting the milk with a kiss like that. It sets the tone for the evening together.

If you can't write a blog about the one you love, maybe just take time to close your eyes and revisit the you that could not wait to see them again. Then surprise them with a kiss.
