I’ll probably be talking to the wives here more than the husbands, but I’m sure that the guys had a few fun slumber parties with their friends when they were younger.
I know most of us girls looked forward to the weekends. It usually meant slumber party time with our besties. We looked forward to it all week. We couldn’t wait to stay up late, eat the yummiest, messiest snacks and giggle all night long. What a blast we had.
Have you experienced that with your spouse yet?
I have. And it’s better than when I was a kid!
Sometimes we include the snacks and stay up late and sometimes it’s just giggling, actually laughing out loud till we’re crying, literally. You know that laughing that is so strong you can barely breath. Your stomach hurts. Your mascara is all over your face (because you didn’t wash your face that night). And your kids are wondering what-in-the-world is going on!
Then the next morning, you wake up with a smile but you can’t even remember what it was that was so stinkin’ funny the night before. But you know you had a great time. You realize that you are so thankful for having a spouse that you can laugh with and enjoy. That you have a best friend by your side, all the time.
I challenge you to have a giggly, full-of-snacks, staying-up-late, slumber party with your spouse.
I promise, that this way of falling asleep is extremely better than going to bed angry at each other. And waking up still angry.
God gave us each a special someone to be in our lives for so many reasons. One of those reasons is to have someone to laugh with and have a really great time with.
Enjoy your spouse.
Love each other fully.
You are a gift to each other. Don’t take it for granted.
