Go Play in the Snow
Feeling youthful is a great help for feeling romantic. There’s something about being able to recapture those days when we were younger, more energetic and more carefree that also helps us recapture the feelings of being in love again.
So, how does one go about feeling younger once again? Well, it sure isn’t by sitting on the sofa and watching television. No, if you want to feel youthful, you need to act youthful. That’s one of the great blessings of grandkids, even though having them makes us all feel old, getting to play with them helps us to feel young.
Day 78 – So, it seems like a good day to go outside and play. Hope you have some nice snow in the yard (I don’t) because playing in the snow is one of those great “kid things” we can all do.
When was the last time you made snow angels? Or, how about had a snowball fight? Probably a while ago, right? Now, I’m not suggesting that you have a snowball fight with your wife; that probably wouldn’t be all that effective a way to be romantic, especially if you manage to hit her hard with a snowball. No, have a snowball fight where it’s parents against kids. That way, you can be her hero; protecting her.
What? You don’t have any snow? Yeah, I can relate to that. Where I live, we’ve only had one snowfall that covered the grass in the last 10 years, and that was 7 years ago. Okay, so we need a non-snow alternative to the snowball fight, right? No, problem; ever heard of a pillow fight? Just remember, she's not your enemy, so don’t hit her too hard, you don’t want to hurt her, you want to have fun.
