I was thinking about that this week since as our 3 older children are gone to bible camp a friend suggested that she take Megan while Ken and I go and have a date. I really appreciated her thoughtfulness in offering and another week we may have gladly taken her up on the offer. This week however we were just coming off of a whole week of vacation (away from home naturally) followed by a week of the county fair where Ken was only home one evening the whole week. We were craving some normalcy. We really didn't feel like going anywhere or doing anything special. We just wanted to be together at home.
We had a fun evening just eating supper and then the three of us played a game of dominoes. Then while Megan got ready for bed Ken and I played a game of dominoes for two. We totally enjoyed our simple evening together.
Though special times are very fun, what really causes our marriage to stay strong is the day to day simple things like smiling at each other, serving one another, meals together and much more.
I hope you too can enjoy the simple times with your spouse!
