Many things have been said about dance through the years. One of my favorites is: “The truest expression of a people is in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie.” (Agnes de Mille). Another great one is: “There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them” (Vicki Baum). When two people dance together, their souls, not just their bodies intertwine. Any couple who truly learns to dance together, as one, is going to find that the rest of their lives follow suit.
Day 6 – Sometime, when it is least expected, put on some soft music, grab your wife, and dance with her. You need to be a little practical here; don’t grab her when she’s running to the bathroom, or when she’s got her arms full of dishes (although in the middle of washing the dishes might work out really well). Don’t try and get out of this one by saying you can’t dance; it’s not about your ability; it’s about your availability. Nobody, except maybe your kids (and they don’t count on this one), is going to be giving you any style points. But, your wife will be giving you romance points.
