Today I just want to share a simple little thing I do to remind myself all day that I think my husband is awesome!
This all came about rather innocently. I didn’t intentionally create this little exercise so that I could remind myself of how much I love Matt. It just happened, and then I realized how cool it was. It’s profound…are you ready?!
I set one of my computer passwords (one that I use frequently) to say something great about Matt. I was feeling giddy one day, and I needed to set a new password…and so just like I was in junior high writing “I LOVE MATT” on the side of my notebook between classes, I set my password to say it.
(“I LOVE MATT” isn’t the password, by the way. What, do you think I’d just tell all of you one of my passwords?)
(Or maybe it IS the password and I’m just telling you it isn’t just to throw you off.)
(Wow, I just forever keep you hopping, don’t I?)
But don’t you remember those feelings you felt back when you and your husband were dating and you couldn’t stop thinking about him and you wanted to carve your initials together into a tree? And tell all your friends about how great he was? And write his name on stuff?
Somehow life takes over and reality sets in and we as a couple become comfortable and not so giddy anymore. That’s mostly okay. We don’t really have time to sit around and sigh and daydream.
But having my password set to remind me all day long that I LOVE MATT (or something else, or not), has been so super neat. Like, totally. (That would be me reverting back to junior high lingo.)
Typing in the words reminds me several times a day of how much I love my husband. And in the middle of a very busy life full of activity and just…busyness…those reminders are a valuable treasure.
So, just a suggestion: Set up a password or two to say something great about your relationship with your husband. You’ll appreciate the loving reminders!
LAURA AND MATT FOREVER XOXOXO
