Little Switches That Make A Difference

I have a pretty good relationship with my hubby, Mike. We've been together for 7 years now and married for 5 years this September. After 2 kids, I can see when things are getting stale. We don't go out much, but we do have special little dinners at home.

My husband has a few tricks up his sleeve. He's been known to pull a romantic or two. I'm not a high maitenence girl, but I think its so sweet. It could be just cuddling on on the couch just watching a movie we got out of a Redbox or Blockbuster rental. Or it could just be sitting back in candle light talking and just relaxing. With 2 young children, I dont have much time to relax. And my husband works a full time job, so I know he needs to relax too.

Mike usually goes to work way before the kids and I wake up. So he's pretty much on his own most mornings to get his lunch made up. Every once in a while, when I'm up late by myself, I'll make him a supurb lunch and include a little note telling him to have a wonderful day. He keeps his phone usually in his car so I'll send him a text saying; "Good morning! Have a great day today!!". He likes seeing that the first thing in the morning since he has to work all day. I'd enjoy it too.

When he comes home late, usually, he gets a shower first thing; then will come in to spend time with us. I try to get him his clothes laid out and a towel so he doesnt have to go hunting for anything after he showers and relaxes. I know that I'd appreciate someone doing that for me. When we were traveling to Montana and got stuck in Salt Lake City overnight, he made sure that I had everything set up in the bathroom for a nice relaxing soak. After THAT stressful day, that was the top of my list.

Sometimes just a switch up that makes a huge difference. It brightens someones day, and they pay it forward to brighten anothers. I know if someone has done something to make me smile, I usually do something just to get a smile out of another. Be it my husband, child, or a total stranger on the street.

What are you going to do in the next few days to bring a smile to your husband, boyfriends, or total stranger's face?
