Day 5 - Send a Little Love

Day 5 of our 7 Day SPICE It Up Marriage Challenge!

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s challenge. 

Today we are focusing on the making our spouse feel special. 

I absolutely adore my husband.  But, honestly, I am the WORST at communicating that to him.  I often struggle with expressing my love and appreciation for my husband. 

My husband, on the other hand, excels at making me feel like the most important woman in the world.

Don’t we all want to want to be reminded that we are loved and appreciated?

You may not feel appreciated our loved by your spouse.  Ask yourself how often you express your love to your spouse?  We cannot demand something that we ourselves do not do. 

It is a fallacy that men do not need love and affection as much as women, whether they admit it or not.

Think of how you feel when your spouse shows appreciation.  For me, I feel closer to my husband.  It reminds me of when we were dating.

We need to have a goal of making our spouse feel special and loved each and every day.  Does this have to be complicated?  No.

In fact, today’s challenge can help us get started with this habit.  And, it is very simple and easy to do.

Today’s Challenge:

Send your spouse 4 love texts today to let them know that you are thinking about them.

Sending short text love messages to your spouse can be so much more than just sending love:

  • They are the perfect pick me up on a rotten day
  • They keep you on your spouse’s mind all day
  • They are a nice surprise
  • They are a fun way to reconnect with your spouse throughout the day
  • They are an easy way to add some spark to your relationship

Need some inspiration?

Here are few examples:

  1. I love you!
  2. I am thinking about you
  3. I am so blessed to have you in my life
  4. I am praying for you today
  5. I hope you have a great day!
