Love Her Through the ‘Net
Us guys have this tendency to like any new gadget that comes along. I think if we could, we’d probably all own all of them. I mean, who doesn’t want to have an iPad? (Don’t answer please) Or, how about the new 3D Televisions, that’s the way to watch the game, isn’t it? Do we ever outgrow our video games? C’mon now, how many of us love to go to Best Buy and drool over the new toys they have.
Sometimes, this infatuation with technology can become a problem in the marriage; especially when we spend so much time with it, that it makes our wife think that the computer has become our mistress.
We need to remember that these things are tools for our use, not a way of replacing our real life with a virtual one. Better yet, we need to learn how to use these things to enhance our real life.
Day 86 – Telling our wives that we love them is probably one of the most important things we do every day; at least, I hope we all do it. Women want, and need that constant reassurance of our love and of their value in our lives. I’ve never yet heard a woman say, “Okay, okay, enough already, you’ve already told me that you love me.”
How about using the Internet as a way to express your love to your wife? There are a number of companies that offer internet greeting cards, and most of them are free. I just did a search for “free online greeting cards” and got over 13 million hits. It seems to me that at least one of them ought to have a decent love note to send to our wives.
Matter of fact, this one might be a good habit. Why not write a note in your planner (assuming you use one), or put an alarm on your phone’s calendar to send her another one in a couple of weeks?
