We are busy with so many things. Too often, we lack what psychologists call, “object permanence.” We walk out the door and our loved ones “disappear.” We forget our spouse and kids (and they forget us) until we see each other again later that evening, but sometimes we are still to distracted to really connect. Today, remember your spouse while you are apart. Do something thoughtful to reach across the chasm. Pick up some flowers. Write a little note. Do that thoughtful task that would make your spouse’s day a little easier. Give your mate a call to say, “I love you.” Just because. Remember your spouse and remind each other that you matter–even when you’re apart.
