It's A Date!
I love my breakfast dates with Paulius.
We usually do it on Sunday mornings, but this week it got delayed until today.
Paulius and I catch up on our breakfast dates. We tell each other stories about growing up.
We solve our problems if any crop up during the week.
We sit and eat and talk and linger over our coffee- in no hurry to start our day-content to just enjoy each others company before life intrudes and demands our attention elsewhere.
We have time to focus on US, on the things we WANT to enjoy and share- not the things that insist together we make decisions on NOW-AT THIS MOMENT.
It's good to be able to do that- to just enjoy each other and life's peaceful moments.
I think that's where a lot of couples go wrong...they let life's routines and problems take over from the second they open their eyes in the morning til the time they close them to go to sleep at night and don't make time to enjoy and remember the "couple" they once were.
Paulius and I have endured too much and come too far to take each other for granted like that.
Not in THIS lifetime.
