Its funny how little things about your loved one can fall to the back of your mind. Maybe you forgot how they lean on their hand as they’re listening… or the way their eyes crinkle when they laugh. Turn on your web cam. Watch your loved one while they’re talking about their day. You’ll be pleasantly reminded of some quirky things that you may have forgotten about.
I’ve had trouble sleeping since my partner left. Week before last, we started leaving our web cams on, and on the bed at night as we fall asleep. We unplug our laptops, so they don’t overheat after all night on the bed, and then we watch each other fall asleep. Its something we used to do at the beginning of our relationship, and every time we do, I am amazed by the peaceful sleep I get watching my love fall asleep, or waking up to find him smiling at me.
If you don’t have a web cam, PLEASE PLEASE think about going out and getting one. Being able to SEE your loved one when you’re separated will make a big difference to your relationship, and make those hard days a little easier to handle.
