Mom’s Life: How a Text a Day Helps My Marriage



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

  • Working

  • Getting errands done

  • Going to events

  • Cooking

  • Cleaning

  • 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

  • You’re beautiful

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.
