In June, He and I went to a marriage conference. The biggest thing we took away from it was what makes us feel loved and one thing to do to show it.
We had to make a promise to do that thing. I won't tell his, it's only fair.
Mine was that he wanted me to get up with him and send him off to work. 5:45am. This makes him feel loved. I want to make him feel loved. I do not want to get up at 5:45 am. There are many many reasons.
I did it. I have kept my promise for 6 months now. I get up with him and get his coffee ready. We try to be so quiet. It is terrifying.
But I enjoy it now. I miss him if I don't see him in the morning and I enjoy a cup of coffee in the quiet before anyone is awake, usually.
He challenged me and I have grown.
He was right.
