He was to be away that evening; on a business trip. I begged him to come home … to make that hour and a half trip to simply sleep next to me in a warm bed, made warm by him just breathing next to me.
He assured me that it would be silly to come home… just to turn around and drive back the next morning… another hour.and.a.half.
I knew it was true. But my heart already ached for him. For my best friend.
Sometimes being away from the ones we love, even for a day, makes us appreciate what we have that much more.
No matter how long you have been married to your spouse, do you know what one of the best gifts you can give them is?
Laughter. Laughter makes the heart lighter. The burdens easier. Life worth living… hand in hand… with the ones we love.
I decided to make him laugh that day. As he was lacing up our daughter’s shoes, I sent a little side-jab his way. I poked around some more, and he doubled over in laughter. Full – out – belly – laughs.
Give your husband the gift of laughter each day. Life is hard, no doubt. There are financial struggles, health struggles, and just plain daily struggles we face to find joy in the simple things. GO. AHEAD. AND. MAKE. HIM. LAUGH.
It will make you laugh too… and your burdens that consume you, will feel a little lighter because you laughed together… even for a moment.
