The In Between Moments
I don't know about you, but my summer has been filled with weddings, lots of Minnesota road trips, new arrivals, new business ventures, illnesses, hospitalizations, going away parties, graduations galore, surgeries, non-profit events, life revelations, Dr. appointments, long hours, too many hours, disappointments, surprises...
Hits and misses, laughter, a glass of wine or two, friends, lessons, The Bachelorette, walks around the lake, family, support, pay it forwards, house warming parties, photography..
Throughout all of life's ups and downs, no matter what, it's important to surround yourself with those you love and who love you in return. For us, it's not about the hits and misses, good days and bad, the weddings, the parties, the hospital visits... it's about all of the little in between moments. The exchange of a smile, a wink, holding hands, sitting next to each other on the sofa, pouring a glass of wine for one another, when he plates me dinner, when I get his work clothes ready for tomorrow, bringing home a surprise dessert, fluffing his pillow, pulling the blankets up so I don't get cold...
It's these in between moments that count more than anything. They are the raw moments. The true moments that define our relationship. They are why we love each other.
No matter what, promise yourself that you will take a moment to enjoy the in between moments.
Until you do, you have no idea what you are missing!
