With Valentines Day approaching I am thinking of starting a series on marriage and romance.
A Little Goes a Long Way
If you are going out of town or simply feel like ‘ships passing in the night’ because of kids, commitments or work, find a small charm or porcelain figure in the shape of a star or a shooting star. Wrap the trinket in a small gift box and fold a note on top of it that says, “Wish you were here” and place it in his or her travel bag , briefcase or purse. When he or she finds it , they'll knows
In order to change tedious or tired routines or to inspire intimacy, you might be surprised at how little effort is required. Tape a note on the television that says, “Wouldn't you rather turn me on?” If he or she is enjoying a good book, remove the bookmark and replace it with a note that says, “I bet you’ll never guess where I've hidden your bookmark.”
Remember the small things you used to do when you first got together that would make your heart flutter and put a twinkle in your eye? Do them again! When you go shopping, for a walk or you’re just sitting together watching TV, hold hands, link arms or put your arm around her. Softly whisper into his or her ear and gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes. If he or she wants to know what you are doing, simply say that you are amazed at how much you love them.
These simple, small acts can really go far when it comes to sparking a little romance in your marriage. They can break the monotony of a relationship or help your partner to feel appreciated and loved. You can expect to feel the same in return!
