Isn’t it amazing how much we love to hear words of encouragement? All too often our day is overloaded with critical comments. We hear how we haven’t done this or that correctly, or we missed completing a certain task on time at work, or why didn’t we do something a particular way. Before you know it, we are overwhelmed with feeling inadequate. The negatives are surely outweighing the positives. Come to think of it, what positives?
How would you like to make a huge impact on your spouse every day? Well, it really is quite simple. Think of something that you appreciate about your spouse and just send them a text. “I really love it when you wear that special perfume! It makes me think about you all day. I can’t wait to see you later. Love you, Your snuggle Bear!” Now that may sound silly, but love can be silly. It can be fun. It can make you laugh and put a big smile on your face. Be happy together. Send a crazy endearing little text once a day and see how it can light up your love for each other. Wouldn’t it be great to send a daily dose of love and affection? Well, the reality is that you can. Just decide to do it.
How about taking a picture with your phone of your wedding ring on your hand and sending it to your spouse with a text that says, “Every time I see this ring it reminds me of you and I think to myself how happy I am that I married you. I love you more each day.” Is that mushy or what? Sure it is. But love should be mushy. It’s cuddles and giggles and laughter and fun. Life is too short to be serious all the time. Sure, we need to pay the bills, and fix those broken things around the house. But we’ll have those kinds of issues to deal with on a regular basis. We can put some light spots in along the way by showing loving affection to each other daily.
Try a Daily Dose of love and see what happens. You may find yourself feeling those mushy love feelings. Oh my!
