I Choose You about "choosing" our spouses - supporting them, caring for them and treating them the way we'd like to be treated. This is something we need to do daily - love is a way of life. I challenge you to daily "choose" your spouse. Try some of these ideas:
- Find unique ways to connect! Leave love notes in odd places around your house. Try recreating one of your first dates. Play a "getting to know you" game where you talk about your goals, dreams and aspirations. If you can't or don't want to go out on a date, have a date night at home - make your own movie theater or restaurant!
- Put your spouse above yourself. Here's a thought - what could you do today that would help your spouse out or give them a break? Run a bubble bath for your wife (if that's her cup of tea) and take the kids to the park. Make your hubby's favorite dinner and offer him a back rub. You don't have to spend money or do anything crazy - something simple could really brighten your spouse's day.
- Make a point to do at least one loving thing every day. Vow to give a compliment to your spouse every day and stick to it. (Even if you have to write it down to remember!) Or commit yourself to doing a chore your spouse hates every day for a week.
Do you have any other ideas about keeping love as a way of life? Leave your thoughts in the comments! :)
