Truthfully…every day we all should try to find ways to show our love in our relationships but oftentimes life keeps us busy, jobs, houses and then we add children to the mix and it gets even busier.

However, it’s always important for us to stop and take inventory of ourselves and how we’ve shown our spouse how much we care.

I’ll never forget at Mom’s Night Out one evening we were all sitting and laughing at the table having a great time when all of a sudden the conversation got a little more serious. A couple that we were all friends with were going through a divorce and we all felt the shock and sadness of it, especially for their kids.  

As many of us began to open it we discovered there were a few moms who come from divorced families and they were trying their very best not to become a statistic.

One of the moms looked around at the table and said it straight out “Statistically half of us at this table will get divorced at some point in our lives.”

WHAT? I was shocked to hear this come out of her mouth but then the facts are there, she’s right.

Of course, when I got home that night I hugged my husband a little tighter and told him that I loved him.

Print out your commitments and put them in a frame!

That night inspired me to come up with this little idea  A way for me to make sure I told him and showed him as much as I can that I loved him. I don’t want to become a statistic.

More importantly, I want my children to see how a marriage should be.

So I came up with some simple commitments I wanted to make to my husband. I have them in a frame on the wall as a visual reminder. It’s not a surprise but it’s a surprise when I’ll do them, keeps him on his toes!  

Once I finish a list I come up with other ideas for another list. Sometimes I even get my children involved. I think it’s important for our children to see that it does take work and effort to build a strong relationship with a spouse.

And let’s be honest after being married for 10 years it’s nice to have something to look forward too!
