Love in Action Day 6
Today and for the rest of the Love in Action Challenge, you’re going to have lots of fun. This one is really easy.
Make a physical connection with your husband as often as you can.
Touch his shoulder.
Kiss his nose.
Smooch him in front of your children. They’ll shout “Eeeewwww!” but they will enjoy the security of knowing Mommy and Daddy love each other.
Sit as close together as possible.
Rest your head on his shoulder.
Hug him whenever you can.
Sit on his lap.
Kiss him like you mean it, even if he forgot to brush his teeth . . . but don’t forget to brush yours.
Dance together to that crazy 90s song you’ve had stuck in your head all week.
Rub his feet, his neck, his back.
And yes, swat his bottom when you walk past him in the kitchen.
For some, this physical contact already comes naturally. Others have grown distant, and this will be more of a challenge. Start small, and don’t expect him to respond over night if touch has become foreign to you.
If you are a mother of little children, you may have touch overload, with little hands tugging and climbing and pinching and making jelly handprints on your only clean shirt all day every day. (I love those little hands!) Little ones in your life needing physical contact throughout the day in no way negates your husband’s need for physical contact. Don’t deprive him.
Have fun with it! He’s your man. Claim him with a kiss.
