It’s so nice to have my husband back after his business trip, you start to realize just how much the daily routine matters. For me it’s great to have him back because I sleep better at night. It’s comforting to have him next to me & know that he’s asleep with the dog. When it’s just the dog & I think about everything that could go wrong rather than right.
I find comfort in daily routines & it’s even nicer to have someone to share it with. Like having coffee together in the morning or after a hike & making dinner together. Daily routines is something we shouldn’t take for granted. When I hear people who argue over the most basic of daily rituals I find toxic. Living isn’t always easy but having a companion to share it with does.
I remember back in my single days how I thought having a daily routine with someone was scary. Now, in my mid-forties I find them comforting. Like hearing my dog bark when my husband comes home. Because he is as happy as I am that he is home. How we take the dog for a long walk on Sundays & how we enjoy our cups of coffee together in the morning during the week & leisurely on the weekend.
We may not have a ton of money but we have the comfort of being together in our daily routines & sometimes that’s all we need.
