Hand Signals

November 4, 2009

in the generous life

(Anyone in the Spokane, Washington area (USA) have an itch to play Guinea pig?  If so, please use the contact form to let me know.  I hope to find a few like minded gals to explore some small group dynamics where encouragement and hearing God’s direction are at play.  If it works out, I will happily share the results of our experiment with the online community at large (I’m hoping to make it very reproducible).  I just need a few gals in my neighborhood to walk with me and help me test out a theory.  Thanks, Lori <><)

Today’s Tip: Create a couple of “private signals” that you and your husband can use during the holiday season.  The “private” part builds intimacy between the two of you and the “signal part comes in handy during the social situations and busyness of the holidays.  Lightly tapping the back of his hand might mean, “I’m tired, can we wrap this up and head for home?”  Tugging your ear might mean, “I need a hug” or “please rescue me from this conversation.”  Don’t forget to create a few romantic/sexual signals as well.  (“Meet me in the bedroom,” “you look absolutely wonderful tonight,” etc.)

There was … language in their very gesture. William Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale

Be generous!  Lori <><

For probably 18 years we have used hand squeezes to say “I love you” privately. Three squeezes and then the other responds with 4 squeezes (to say “I love you too”). I got this from a marriage conference.
