This picture perfectly depicts a conversation that happens at least 3 times a week in my house. Sometimes I am the first cat, my sweet hubby is the second. The conversations go something like this:
Me (on the computer): hahahahaha! That is TOO funny! See??
But sometimes it's reversed. Sometimes it looks like this:
Him (watching something like "World's Dumbest" on TV): Bahhahahaha!! Look at this guy face plant!! Wait, let me back it up, you gotta see this!
Me (typing away on the keyboard, or perhaps reading on the couch, or working on a cross stitch) big sigh.....stop whatever I am doing.....waits with barely concealed impatience while the scene is set.......says "oh, uh huh" or maybe I laugh and roll my eyes. After about the 5th time (he is persistent too) I say "HONEY!" and sigh really big. My thought process is this: If I wanted to see the idiot face plant I wouldn't be on the computer/reading a book/cross stitching.
Does this happen with all couples? Or is it just us? Now don't get me wrong, I love a stupid video and he loves a good joke. And we love each other. But sometimes we take it for granted, the assurance that we will always have each other. That we will always be able to turn to the other and say "look at this!" So, we don't treat those moments as we should, and sometimes we hurt each other with our indifference.
**I need to tell you, what you just read is not how the post read in my head. It wasn't gonna be a "deep" thought kind of thing. It was just gonna be a humorous peek into my life. And I hope it is. And more than that. Because in typing this I just reminded myself how important he is to me. How much I appreciate his presence in my life. I think I should say God reminded me. I need to value those silly little moments more. I need to respect them and cherish them. I need to remember that love means taking the time from my interests to be interested in his. And he needs to read this post. :-)
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
