Where yesterday's dare was to be positive and patient, today I was to extend AT LEAST one unexpected gesture, while ALSO being positive and patient.
I sent my hubby a mushy (but honest and heartfelt) text first thing this morning. This was his response. It really meant something to him, yay!
I tend to be an overachiever, so I didn't stop with one gesture. Dinner was something new, but contained a lot of meat - his favorite. When he offered to help, I suggested he relax and enjoy some down time. I played some of his favorite music while preparing dinner, to which he was very grateful, sorry Beiber (teenage and preteen daughters). After a few more gestures he started getting suspicious. Woops, laid it on a little too thick...
He finally asked what I read in my devotions this morning - God MUST have told me something! I didn't say a word, but I started thinking. At least he didn't think I was drinking wine while I made dinner! He didn't ask if I was sick or something. He didn't ask if I was trying a new supplement to make me extra "nice"?
He never put a word to it, but it was clear it was different and he liked it. Regardless of how good I can think our relationship may be, it is evident I can always be MORE INTENTIONAL and LIBERAL with my words and acts of kindness towards him. Now to figure out what gift I can pick up tomorrow, for day three. Yes, I read ahead! ;)
