Hello everyone and thank you for joining me on our journey of marital romance. First, I would like to apologize for not posting these last few days due to the sudden attack of the flu. I am back now and would like to continue our journey. I do hope that my lessons and posts have been insightful and helpful. Okay let’s get started with part three of our lesson’s shall we?
Everyone in any type of relationship loves to be acknowledged in one form or another. One form that I love is when I find little notes from my husband. He doesn’t have to leave or be gone from the house to still leave me little notes. They don’t even have to say much. Sometimes it could just be “I love you” and that simple form brings a smile to my face every time. You could even be the little note maker for your significant loved one. It doesn’t take much to make someone else feel good or brighten their day.
Wouldn’t you love to find a little note from your loved one telling you to “have a good day”, “thank you”, or even a “thinking of you”? It is the little things that we should cherish the most. It also shows that person that you appreciate them, think about them, and to some, it is a positive affirmation of how much they are loved or thought about. My husband and I constantly leave little notes to each other. We both have computers with messengers on them in the same room and while I sit at mine working, he will send me a quick little message telling me how much he loves me. It’s funny how one little message can brighten the day of another person. So, try it. Leave that person in your life a little note and see what kind of a reaction you get or how they respond to it.
The next thing is texting that person. With technology rising with new creative ideas every day, send a text to that person just saying “hi”, or “how is your day going?” and let them know you miss them or are just thinking about them. I know all of this should have been covered in communication, but to me, this is a whole other aspect of it. While you’re at work and taking that fifteen-minute break, text your loved one and tell them how much you are missing them. It doesn’t take much to do even with a sandwich in your other hand. Multitask people.
Texting someone at home while you’re away can make for a nice homecoming after a hard stressful day at work. I know it sounds so cliche but everyone needs some positive affirmation in their life no matter how bad or good it is. People think we need money, technology, or fancy things to be happy, but I am here to tell you that I live in a two room tent with my husband and two and three-quarter dogs on disability, and we still leave each other positive affirmations and little notes. We are still happy even being homeless. It is those simple little things that make a whole big difference in someone else’s life.
The third part of this lesson is even simpler. It is called making a phone call. One of the oldest ways of communication can be uplifting to someone’s spirit. Call that person just to say “hi”, see how they are doing? It is not that you are checking up on them or accusing them of something, it is just a caring reminder that “hey, someone is thinking of me today” and it feels so wonderful. Every time my husband and I are away from each we call each other about every two hours or so just to see how the other is doing or feeling.
It is so calming to hear my husband’s voice on the phone telling me that he was thinking of me, or that he loves me. It can make a relationship stronger and be appealing to each other. It draws the two fo you closer and builds an invisible barrier around you that no one can break.
Allow that person to know and feel how much you love or care about them. You appreciate or respect them enough to send them little notes, text messages, or even a phone call to see if they are okay or need anything. My husband and I both suffer from Major Depressive Disorder and these little affirmations make a very big difference in our lives. I encourage you to try it with that special someone in your life. Make a big difference in their life which will cause a domino effect and the world would be a better place. 🙂
Thank you for being here today and I want to wish everyone a great day and remember that there is someone out here who does care and appreciate you.
