Reading for others

Sometimes, people can get lost in social media and technology and not truly connect with their loved ones…For example, I’ve noticed families will be eating out at a restaurant and almost every single person is on their phone. It makes me a little sad inside to see people forgetting to truly interact with one another. Hopefully, we can all gently remind each other of being present, in the moment.

I purchased a book about Native American myths from a vintage shop. Later, I thought to myself that maybe I could get my husband to read parts of the book with me. It may seem sort of silly but I felt that it would be a great way to spend time together. Instead, of mindlessly watching tv and stuffing our mouths with food. We’re trying to not make that a habit…

Today, he laid on my laps and at first he was fidgeting a lot and messing with me but when I started to read he remained calmed. I got nervous and started to overthink that maybe he wasn’t interested or something but I kept reading. Once, I finished reading he said he actually enjoyed it. And we ended up reading short stories to each other 🙂

We’re in our 20’s, really early 20’s…Part of the reason why I was drawn to buy this book is because he is part native and I thought it’d be nice to learn more about it. Needless to say, it made me really happy that we were able to do something like that.

 

Thanks for reading <3

  1. What a wonderful way to share time! My hubby is part Cherokee. I am proud of our daughter being able to say she is part Native. We have been married 47 years. Like, wow, right? I wish you a glorious, strong marriage full of happiness. God bless you!

  2. Aww this is lovely and refreshing to read .. I agree I see way too many people in company staring at their phones and notice how uninterested they seem in the people around them which is really a sad state of affairs.

  3. @savedbygrace Thank you so much for the blessings! I strive to have a loving and long marriage. Knowing that you’ve been together for 47 years is truly beautiful and gives me hope! And that’s funny, my husband is also Cherokee. Blessings to you and your family 🙂 !!
