It’s the weekend, and I hope you’re in the mood for love. If he’s been busy or stressed out at work, offer to give him a shoulder-rub, brew a pot of your favourite tea and relax over a movie.
If both of you haven’t had the time to sit down and chat, schedule time to do so. Ask him questions: “How are you feeling?” or “How I can love you better?” Or try writing a love letter for him, especially if his love language is words of encouragement. (Even if it’s not, it’s okay. Write him a love letter anyway.)
If things have gotten a little tense in the home, head outdoors for a quiet walk and some fresh air. Let go of the negativity held inside you and fill the void with thoughts of love and hope.
Find a bench or sit by a tree, lean on each other and soak in nature and its peaceful offerings.
Listen to his dreams. Let him in on yours.
Re-discover what first attracted you to him, and him to you. Share these nuggets with each other and giggle if you need to.
Be silly. Do silly things. Be like fools in love.
I hope you make each other your priority this weekend. For once…the kids can wait. For you guys, it’s worth it.
