So, the other day, I was laying in the middle of my floor, with both dogs laying around me. I was hugging the pups, kissing on them, giving them loads of attention. I stood up, swooped my daughter in my arms, and lavished her with hugs and kisses and attention.
As I was doing this I thought, who am I missing?
Oh yeah - that manly figure sitting on the couch. When was the last time I hugged and kissed him, lavishing him with all kinds of attention?
Hmm...I had to think hard about that one.
Oh my goodness, it's so easy to forget about that in a marriage, isn't it? Why was I so free with my TLC with dogs and kids but not with my husband?
So, we turned on the Cowboys game and I said, "Would you like a shoulder rub?" I gave him one, without asking for one in return, and I laid in his lap while watching the game.
