February’s challenge was to “bless your husband with small acts of kindness and generosity.”
Everyday I had to type those words (OK, sometimes I copied and pasted them), but I was reminded again and again to think about doing good to and for my husband. I soaked in the concept all month long.
I’m normally pretty generous (the focus of the last few years), but I looked for opportunities to love on him, serve him, and encourage him more. I filled his drink (he often fills mine and I was getting a bit lazy). I decided to help a bit more in the kitchen (he’s taken on most of the cooking, but it’s always nice to have a break). I rubbed sore muscles, spoke out my appreciation, and more.
What I found at the end of the month is I’m more in love with him.
How did that happen? Maybe it’s a bit of cause and effect. When you act lovingly toward someone you tend grow to love them more. I also noticed that my husband was softer toward me and the atmosphere of our home was more relaxed. All good fruit.
I know this month’s challenge is over, but don’t forget what you’ve learned and keep at it!
Love — the feeling — is a fruit of love, the verb. Steven R. Covey
