I have heard people complain about texting, saying texting makes it so people don't talk on the phone any more, or face to face, they just send off a quick text. While there might be some truth to that, I have found that texting has actually straightened my marriage.
There are a lot of little things throughout the day; things not worth interrupting him with a phone call, things that might not seem really that significant. But it is those little things, those little moments that make up my day, make up who I am, help shape my identity and roll as a mother and wife. I feel like I am able to stay more connected with him, keep him more in the loop of what is happening in our day, what is happening with our family.
There have been moments when I have felt like I should reach out to him, just send him a quick message letting him know I am thinking of him. These are often days that I know he is busy, in and out of stressful meetings; but a quick text letting him know that I am thinking of him and that I love him ends up going a long ways.
Sure, I could tell him those things when he gets home, but let's be honest a lot of the little things, a lot of the seemingly insignificant things, I would probably forget to mention by the end of the day. But those little things keep us connected, keep us as one.
