“It’s the little details that are vital. The little things make the big things happen.” —John Wooden

little things

Sometimes we forget that the little things are what count the most in marriage. So much is made of the big things we do for each other: The trips, gifts, and grand gestures that surprise us. 

It’s easy to see why this happens.

These big events are our “Instagramable moments” that are posted to social media for everyone else to see and admire. They are the validation we want so we can wear them as a badge; showing that we are important. To show the world that we are loved in big ways. 

Here’s the thing, those big things are few and far between. 

Most times, these big gestures require large amounts of time or money or both. Because of this, they don’t happen every day. Most of us can’t afford big gestures multiple times a month or even a year. 

When you think about how many days are in one year, you can see that there are more chances to do the little things than the big things.  

Plus, when you think about it, it’s those little things that move us towards those bigger things. 

Go back to when you were dating. What little things did you do to show your love? Did you buy flowers? Where did you go on a whim? Was there a special coffee or beverage you picked up?

Now that you’re married, remember to take advantage of those little moments and do those little things that may have fallen to the wayside. 

No worries! You can literally stop and embrace those little things right now. 

  • Run a bubble bath
  • Do a load of laundry (if that’s not your regular chore). 
  • Send your spouse a sexy text message
  • Make breakfast and clean up those dishes.
  • Smile and let him/her know that you appreciate them. 

It doesn’t take a lot to make a huge difference. Take the time this week to stop and embrace the little moments with your spouse.
