A Small Ritual

Take out chinese noodles

My husband and I, for the first five years of our marriage, would get together every Wednesday that the weather was nice, and buy Chinese food to eat in the park.

The park was just a ways down from our house and the Chinese restaurant was in-between. The total trip was right around $10 every week.

It was a great building block to our relationship.

Even when we were arguing over something, we would stop, and go get Chinese to eat and just watch the breeze in the trees and silently enjoy each other’s company.

The silent time usually broke our arguments and when we were getting along great (we don’t argue much) it was a great time to escape reality and temporarily forget about work, and all of life’s problems.
