Too Much Love
Doesn't every woman want to be swept off their feet?
In the middle of a giggle from me as Mr. Croft kissed my neck, Andrew proclaimed, "You guys have too much love in there!"
Too much love? Mike said, "Mommies and Daddies can't have too much love!" and kissed me again, with our boys looking on.
Is there such a thing as too much love? In a world declaring the need for me, me, me, there seems to be no room for "we". We would all be better off if we just took a moment and thought about fulfilling another's needs instead of our own. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of life, we all need to be reminded that we are genuinely loved, and soak up those moments. (Thank you handsome husband!)
Dinner will still get ready on time. The kids will get fed. You'll always have the dishes to clean later. The difference is that you and your spouse will have fed your marriage, and you will have taught your children that there can't be too much love in your home.
Love is taking time to recharge your relationship, even if it means ignoring dinner and letting the dishes remain dirty for a bit.
