Our two boys love the element of surprise. Don’t they?

Absolutely. They want to create it in anyway they can; especially if you’re going to greet them for the first time.

Yeah, they hear the garage door coming up: “Hide! Mom’s coming home. Let’s surprise her.”

Yeah, and you have to admire that because they want it to be a moment. They want you really notice them when you greet them.

Not a bad quality.

Yeah, in fact, I relate to that totally in marriage. It feels so good when somebody gives you attention and really kind of celebrates that moment of seeing you.

There is something about that moment that you reconnect at the end of the day. Think about that friend in your own relationship. Bring a little element of surprise into your reconnection.
