So my husband ,Chad and I decided to do a testimonial video that my sister needed tonight. We had such a great time making it. We got both kids involved. One was the director and one was the camera man. As we were making the video I realized that what were talking about could maybe benefit other couples. You see the video was about a website that is designed to help you communicate with your spouse. As I watched the playback I realized that what my husband was saying was so true ( of course since I wrote out our script I shouldn't have been surprised lol) but I was. All it takes is a small break down of communication in our relationships to cause a big problem. If we stop talking to each other we can't know what the other is thinking or feeling. Before long what seemed like just a little thing to start with has become a huge obstacle in your relationship. It is much easier to take care of a small mole hill rather than trying to care of the problems after they have compiled into a huge mountain. It doesn't have to be alot of time everyday that you spend talking to each other. It's about making the most out of the quiet time you do have. For instance Chad and I have only 1 car right now and while some may see that as an inconvenience we see it as a blessing. I take Chad to work every morning so we have about a 20 minute ride without the kids to just talk about upcoming plans or if one of us need something special done. We also try to meet at least 3 days a week at his work for lunch. These are not big amounts of time but we enjoy the time we have to talk without worrying about our kids hearing us. I know that not everybody is fortunate enough to be able to work in these specific times in your day, but all of us have something that we could do to make special time with our partner. Even if at times it seems like an inconvenience believe me when I say it is worth it!
