Debbie and I are getting ready to go on vacation! As I anticipate our time away, I am reflecting on a priority that we set early in our marriage. From the first years of marriage, we looked for opportunities to get time away–ALONE. It wasn’t always easy because it takes some guts to ask a friend or even a family member to take on the responsibility of five kids! But the benefits that we reaped have been so worth it. Even though our kids are now grown with families of their own, we still love to get away together–we really enjoy spending time with each other. And that’s because we cultivated our own relationship all throughout our marriage.
Don’t let the busyness of the moment stop you from investing in your future! Determine right now that you will make “time away” a priority.
