How a Text a Day Helps My Marriage
by Judy Uragano
The difference a text a day can make in your marriage
With a 10-month-old and a 3-year-old, we don’t get much time for “us”. We get so caught up in the following:
Handling temper tantrums
Helping our toddler through his new fears
Going through teething
Dealing with two little ones who both aren’t sleeping through the night now
Getting errands done
Going to events
Go go go
What makes a huge difference for us are text messages. When my husband is at work, he sends me a message on both breaks and lunch. Just a quick message like the following:
How are you?
I love you
I miss you
These everyday texts make a big difference when you feel like you no longer have time for each other.
These everyday texts remind you that you are important.
These everyday texts give a little smile to you when you were just spit up on or just broke down after a big tantrum.
These everyday texts remind you that you are loved.
I don’t know how my days would go if I didn’t get any messages from my husband. No messages telling me I’m doing a good job. No messages to give me a reminder that I am on his mind. No messages saying the things that we could easily forget to say while running a home together.
We can get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of a young family that we don’t always have time to connect.
These little messages are a nice and easy way to connect throughout the day. It’s such a simple thing to do, to send a message that says, “I love you.” You will never know the impact that it can have on your marriage unless you try.
I’m thankful for these everyday text messages.
