This week our date was completely unlike anything we normally plan. Tom set aside an evening at his initiative to take me shopping for a new bathing suit – something I really don’t enjoy doing; oh I enjoy shopping…it’s the bathing suit part that’s the problem! Having him with me made all the difference…he was not only with me physically, but he was there helping me with his much needed encouragement.
You must know that he really doesn’t enjoy shopping so much, but he enjoys being with me! So the date was quite memorable in that I knew he was doing this for me, to help me do something I don’t like doing.
There are so many ways this type of attitude can express itself in marriage…think of something your spouse doesn’t enjoy doing and then, plan an evening to help them do it, or better yet – do it for them as a surprise. We guarantee this will fan the flames of romance!
As a bonus, Tom is sending me away with three of my dear friends for a few days at the beach. I’m there as you’re reading this! Something I don’t think I’ve done since we’ve been married, and that’s 31 years!
Thank you, Babe! I loved our date, and I love you!
