Study Buddy

Is there something that you are curious about or some study or class that you would like to take?  Invite your husband to learn with you.  If he doesn’t have the time or desire to do so, be sure to share bits and snippets of your study info to keep him in the loop.

Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. Chinese Proverb

I Want to Hold Your Hand

I had some dental work done today.  It wasn’t really that serious, but for some reason it really unnerved me, so I asked my husband to go and sit with me during the appointment.  He didn’t act impatient.  He didn’t make fun of me or treat me like I was being silly.  He just loved me and took my need at face value.  I felt truly blessed (and the ladies at the office thought he was funny and sweet, he has a lovely sense of humor and told them he was there to keep me from biting folks, I kid you not).

So as a tip idea … take a similar attitude toward your husband.  Not the biting part,   ;-)   the part about respecting your spouse and treating them and their needs with kindness and understanding.  A need is a need is a need.  Judging the value of your spouse’s need is judging your spouse in a way.  How kind it is to value them by valuing their needs (however silly the need may seem to you at the moment).

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Philo

Bedroom Check

Time for another bedroom check.  How romantic and lovely is your bedroom?  Are there piles of laundry laying around?  Not very romantic.  Fold them and put them away.  Piles of papers?  Sort and file them.  Straighten up, put on fresh sheets and set out a candle or two.  Make your bedroom that special room for just the two of you, where you can talk and share and love.

Color Him Handsome

Figure out what colors look better on your husband and then when you go shopping for him buy clothes in those colors that are more flattering.  You can take hints from his existing clothes (you know that sweater that always looks so nice on him) to books or sites about color.

Behold, you are handsome, my beloved!  Yes, pleasant! Song of Songs 1:16  NKJV

Romantic Interlude

Buy a few CDs of romantic music or find a romantic radio station that you and your husband like.  Then use the music to add a bit of romantic ambiance whenever you have a little time for the two of you.

If music be the food of love, play on … William Shakespeare
