Little Games

in the generous life

I can’t over emphasize the importance of little times of fun and silliness.  The tiniest, simplest and often least expensive things can make for moments of real intimacy.  Here’s a tip from a generous wife that gives you a glimpse into what I mean. (thanks, Jennifer!)

This week our date night was a game night, and I started the day off by inviting him to play hangman with me on our bathroom mirror.  I used a dry erase maker to leave blank spots that would become a love message.  We had a blast going back and forth throughout the day – I’d walk by and see he had guessed a new letter and I would fill in the blank or continue to draw my “hangman.”  (My stick figure drawing became something less lethal and way more fun.)  By the end of the night, he had guessed his message and we got to go do what the stick couple on the mirror was doing.  The next morning, he had initiated a new game.  Fun!

Be generous!  Lori <><

My hubbie and I pull out a fun game every once in a while for date night – Twister. We play with modified, spicy rules. We start out spinning the color wheel fully clothed (or if we want to speed up the process, we start wearing just our under clothes) and you play the game, getting all tangled and trying to get the other to fall. The first one to fall has to remove a piece of clothing. You keep playing until one of you is fully nude (if you can make it to the end of the game ;-). I always tease my hubbie a little bit and he seems to love the whole experience … it’s a fun and exciting evening. You’ll never look at Twister the same way!
