Just a Motivating Monday - Marriage

If you're just joining in:

-Write a blog post about ANYTHING at all that inspires you, or something you feel will inspire others.

-Please link back to Garibay Soup

-Please snag my Just a Motivating button on your post.

-I hope that we can all go and visit each other's blogs and read what everyone has linked up ~ I hope that this carnival can bring more traffic for you :) So, spread the comment love! 

Every week I do a post on something inspiring. Something that might touch your soul and inspire you in some way. Sometimes people link up with things that motivate them, and that's okay. There's no wrong way with this carnival and I just wanted to throw that out there. You can link up motivating or inspiring.... either way it will move us :)

With that little note said, I'm writing yet another piece on something that inspires me....
Greet one another with a kiss of love -- 1 Peter 5:14

It's the little things in life that matter. It's the casual smile, the squeeze of the hand, the random phone call in the middle of the day that truly screams "I LOVE YOU!"

I'm hoping to inspire you to do something random and beautiful for your marriage today..... Choose one of the following ideas and do them! Yes, I'm totally stealing these ideas from the book Fireproof:

Call your husband at work and just ask how his day is going

Write a love letter and leave it inside of his pants/shirt pockets 
Don't say anything negative to your spouse (this is hard, but well worth it!)
Do a random act of kindness

One thing I am starting to learn and try my hardest in practicing in my marriage is to wake up thinking what can I do to make his day happy. It's hard, sometimes we as human beings tend to want to be selfish, but in a marriage you can't be selfish. You will see that if you start living your life to make your husband happy, make his life easier, happier he will in turn want to do the same for you. So in the end it's a win/win... and if he doesn't in turn do that, that feeling of doing nice things for your husband are well worth it!

My husband and I never leave the house or end a phone conversation without a "I love you". We leave each other little "love notes" all the time. And always make each other smile when one of us has had a bad day.

Thanks for the mention that I am not screwing up your MEME. lol! I didn't even do it right this week though probably.

Anyways, I really need to focus on doing more to show my husband I care. We have so many issues as a couple and it is hard sometimes but I know that the little things really do mean a lot.

I am going to text him right now that I love him... something I haven't done in quite awhile.
