Show the love!

I have been meeting with a couple of young women for the past few months. They both have only been married for a few years. The honeymoon is over and the reality of life as wives and mothers has set in. The reality of balancing work, marriage, kids, laundry, school, groceries, etc. seems daunting. And let's face it, sometimes it is.

We are going through the book "The Love Dare". I went through this book last year when our church encouraged it and thought it had some really great reminders about showing love to those we hold dearest.

Christmas is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate the season by showing those we love a little something extra. It is so easy to get in the routine of life and forget that each member of our family is a special gift given to us by God. I know I certainly don't always treat then that way.

So for the rest of the month I am going to be highlighting some of the 'dares' that we are doing. I hope this will encourage you to show those that live in your home, not just your spouse, that you do love and cherish them.

Today's dare:
Doing something out of the ordinary to show you love them.
Wash the car, make a meal, go get them a coffee, play a game, read a book. Say 'I love you' in a special way today.
