Hooray for play!
Things have been kind of tense lately between my husband and me. We have been married a little over a year and sometimes we just go through some big rough patches as we negotiate our new lives together (we both waited till our 40's for marriage). This morning started out pretty rough and we spent most of the day on shaky ground. So much for a relaxing Sunday together!
And to make matters worse it's been like 100 degrees here for days, and we've been indoors a lot. This evening, on a whim, I asked my husband to go to the pool with me. I normally go just to swim laps but I thought forget the laps, just go play. And we did. For over an hour. We dove and swam and wrestled and played b-ball. All the tension from this morning vanished. Then we got hungry so we went out for burgers (no buns) and when we got home we...well, we played some more .
Play...so simple, so healing.
Thank you for sharing Mermaid! It's a great reminder for all of us.
