Each and every morning my long-suffering husband brings me a cup of a coffee while I sit at the table and check my emails/read comments/check stuff online. I ADORE those 20 minutes or so when I sit and read and sip and look forward to them when I drag myself out of bed each morning while a 4-year-old starts throwing demands at me.
I once posted a picture similar to this on Instagram saying how much I love my coffee when someone mentioned to me that this was “marriage glue”. The sort of stuff that ACTUALLY count for something – not the odd bunch of overpriced roses on Valentines Day, or a cheesy birthday card…THIS is the stuff that counts and helps couples stay together. I think they were right, this cup of coffee every day does make me love Rob more – silly but true.
What else do you think is this kind of marriage glue? Doing the washing or vacuuming for you (I can’t imagine that shit going down in our house). Or taking out the rubbish without you having to think about it. Making you a drink at the end of the day. Drying up the dishes? Is it an act of simplicity that means you just don’t have to worry about something? I wonder what Rob would think MY version of glue was for him….so much to choose from!
What about you? What’s the simple stuff that helps you guys stick together?
