The first year it was so easy to do that. Even after our first child we still did that. We now have four kids and two puppies. My husband is student teaching and will graduate college next month. I am a stay at home mom and my days are about as long as Rob's. Lately, we have been struggling to still date each other. We spend time in the same room but doing different things once our boys are in bed but somehow that hasn't been the same. This week Rob showed me a game that he has been playing. He is a gamer. I'm not much of a gamer however the game he introduced me to we can play together. I'm so happy we have found something we both enjoy and can do right at home as a "date".
Time together for us is definitely important. Taking time together to refresh and remember how we started helps us and helps our family. Date nights may not come as often but time together doing the same thing is still just as great.
I'm thankful for my husband and how hard he works for us. I am thankful for the time we do have together just for us and as a family. The follow prayer definitely is my prayer especially reminding us that it takes both of us.
The world and those in it may demand so much of us but nothing here on earth will ever separate Rob and I. Our busyness will never come between us.
We lean on each other constantly and for that I'm thankful.
Date nights don't have to be extravagant. We make time for each other in simple (and cheap) ways. If you have other ideas for easy dates at home, comment with them!
