So, in honor of the Month of Love I'm going to be utterly too cutsie, sappy. I have challenged myself to try and come up with a daily love post. Because it makes me feel warm n' fuzzy. And in case you hadn't noticed the weather in New England...I can use all the warm n' fuzzy I can find. Also...it helps distract me from my big Three Five birthday looming right around the corner. Among other things. Other things which may or may not be sprinkled in between love posts. Depending on the amount of energy I have. And how many snow days the kids have this month.
What I'm loving today...
is the article below. Which my adorable and twinkling eyed hubby suggested I read. And implement.
How you say goodbye as you and your husband begin your day can help you build a lifelong romance. Ray and I say send each other off each morning with a six-second kiss, and after 39 years of marriage, I highly recommend it!
After years of a quick shout from somewhere near the back door, it started with “Goodbye, honey. See you tonight . . .” which left us both wanting more. It stopped when we decided that before we went out to face our day we would scout the other out, wrap each other up in a warm embrace, and begin our day with an intimate, very married, six-second kiss.
Try it. Tomorrow when you say goodbye, take your husband’s face in your hands. Look deeply into his eyes. Ask him to hold you for just six seconds. Tell him you love him. Admire him. Tell him you can’t wait until the day is done and you’ll have time together again, and then kiss him like you mean it.
Go ahead. Try it! Your young children will grow up feeling secure in the love between their parents. Your adolescents will blush, groan, and hope their friends don’t see you. Your teens will hope that someday they can build a marriage like their parents. And if there are no children around? Hmmmm, now there’s an interesting situation!
