I haven’t been the best wife the last few months. I will be the first to admit it. With my life changing like it has, I just kind of withdrew into myself and not allowing myself to love on my husband at all.
But ya know what I have come to realize? The main person I have been hurting is myself.
Touch is SO important. Not just intimate touching, but a lingering hug, a small caress on the shoulder or back, or even a deepening kiss.
God knows exactly how important it is for spouses to feel connected and one of those ways is to connect through touching.
I fail at that miserably. I have never been a “touchy feeling” kind of person. But sometimes, my favorite thing to do is to sit on my husband’s lap and just let him hold me. There is nothing like it in the world.
So why can’t I return the favor of touching him?
I realize I fail at this when he says, “Will you rub my back?”, or when I do decide to give him a lingering touch on his face, he says to me, “What brought that on? You haven’t done that in a long time.”
I will be taking my own advice this week and spend more time touching my husband in a loving manner so that he and I can feel more connected. I encourage you to do the same.
Make your man feel special.
Let him know that he is important to you.
Touch his face as you look into his eyes and say “I love and respect you so much.”
