I kept my word and did something romantic for you yesterday. When I came home from work, I told you to just hang out while I prepared dinner. As it turned out, you almost had it finished. So I simply took over while you went on Facebook. I cleaned the dining area (which took some effort–our kids used it for their play area that day), set up the table for a candle-lit dinner, and put on some nice music. We ate roast, which you prepared wonderfully, and had a very romantic time . . . with our precious little ones dropping roast on the carpet, refusing to eat, and messing with the candle! Would you have it any other way?
My loving act for day 13 consisted in posting an expression of my love for you on your Facebook profile. I told you that I love you, that I love being married to you, and that I’m so attracted to you. These statements are true! Incidentally, I’m growing to love these daily acts and blog posts. Every day presents a new opportunity to love you, to show you that I love you, and to make you feel appreciated. I hope that this year transforms our marriage and it seems that things are already changing. Here’s a disclaimer, though: I don’t want you to get the impression that I think our marriage was bad. Things were going fairly well. It’s just that I became passive and comfortable with our relationship. I want to actively pursue you and make you the passion of my life (though God is my ultimate passion!).
