Ever since hubby and I were dating, we would always make it a point to celebrate milestones in our relationship, however big or small it may be. But when the kids came, one after the other, these little traditions seemed to be Herculean missions we could not regularly sustain! Even if we vowed at the start of our marriage to always make time for each other, we would most of the time skip our weekend moviedates so we can play with the girls or just be able to grab a luxurious afternoon nap. And the list goes on!
So imagine my surprise when my hunny came home last night and brought with him the sweetest cake ever! It was our wedding Monthsary - 56th months to be exact! Lucky me!
Made me realize again how important it was to strengthen our relationship with each other. Parenting oftentimes takes the priority and marriage takes a backseat as a result. I always remember what a very wise friend told me when we got engaged... "Always take care of your husband and keep the love burning, because when the children are all grown up and have left the family house, it's just the 2 of you all over again!" Wise word indeed!
