This last year was really rough. We moved, had responsibilities that meant a lot of travel, and I hurt my back several times. That's the short list.
I learned a lot, however. Isn't that the way it is with God. I learned that there will always be "stuff" going on and you can't let that stop you from living life and, since this is a Saturday tip, you can't let it stop you from having a bedroom life.
Certainly you want to take care of yourself, but realize that your married sexuality (both yours and your husband's) is important. Don't let life or mishaps routinely stall out your bedroom life. Be creative and find ways of keeping the flame alive even through difficult seasons or when mishaps occur.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery. James Joyce
This is little tip is from that daily wife link I subscribe to. I love waking up every morning to find great advice and quotes to inspire my marriage. I saved this one from the other day to share with you because I thought it was such a good reminder for us as wives to not let "life" get in the way of us loving on our man. As women and mom's we have allot on our plates. We've got kids hanging from us and demands at home and work that draw all our attention and energy. Often we let our marriage not being "perfect" keep us from connecting with our husband intimately. I am gently reminded by this Godly women through her daily encouragements that "life" is just that, life. We cannot allow daily "things" to come in the way of us coming together and connecting with our husbands. They need that physical touch and nurturing often whether we "feel" like it or not.
I try to remind myself that it blesses my husband to surprise him with new date nights, quiet evenings with candles or maybe a new piece of lingerie or something. We are not the only ones who like to be romanced. :) Just a thought as Valentines Day approaches.
