Isn’t that so true — that being together is all that matters?
Yesterday was mine & B’s 3rd anniversary together. We planned to go to dinner, and of course it was the one day that I had to drop something off at FedEx after work and the traffic was bad and I needed to stop at Target and then I got home and I was starting to sweat and needed to change and what is wrong with my face right now?? Yeah, one of those evenings. And you know what? The night was fine. We had the best dinner, it did not matter what I was wearing or that my mascara was clumping (boys don’t notice that anyway).
What mattered is that we had made time for something that was important to us. Any relationship should have these moments, whether a friendship, with family, or the person you love . . . make time to just enjoy each other’s company. It won’t matter what you look like, where you go, or what you do.
Put down the phone. Make eye contact. Tell them about something you saw recently that you just loved. Notice how much that person enjoys just being with you. Then listen to their story with every ounce of intent you have. Its rejuvenating, freeing, and it feels good.
