How Can I Love You Today?

This is a challenge.  Better yet, it’s a dare.  I know it is a dare because 99% of us probably never or rarely ask our spouse the question … “How can I love you today?”.

What do you think would happen if you asked your spouse this question … every single day?  Would you get crazy comments like “buy me this (expensive) item” or “let’s have sex 5 times today”?  That is a likely possibility.  However, over time you might start getting simple but meaningful requests.

It is during this time you will start to hear and feel what’s in your spouse’s heart.  You think you know your spouse after many years of marriage?  I am sure you do; but I bet you will get to know your spouse at an even deeper level if you ask this daily question … “How can I love you today?”.

Now I will be honest with you, this is not something I do often with my wife.  I need to do it … and she needs to do it with me.  I do ask myself quite often what can I do to love my spouse today … and that is good.  But I can be wronger than a dog at a cat fight (and yes I know “wronger” is not a word).  The only way I can be on point is if I am getting the info from the horse’s mouth.

So let that be the challenge and dare to everyone.  Each day ask your spouse “How can I love you today?”; and try to under how your spouse ticks.  Continue to grow as a couple and learn the many new ways to love your spouse each and every day.

Love hard and love true.  Let us know your thoughts.
