In our fast-moving and complicated world filled with over working, stress and, well, life, we sometimes forget to look past everything going on and appreciate each other in our marriage.
That’s pretty much for Hubby Byren and I started off our new year. With him working late hours and then spending three evenings a week coaching rugby, I’ve been spending my time with our kids and then spending the evenings alone. I guess it can’t be too bad because I find ways to keep myself busy and help time pass on.
However, no matter what I do, these activities don’t make up for lost time. This distance creates a drifting apart problem.
So I thought, we can’t change our situation, it is what it is. But we can work on our drifting apart situation.
