“Posting” Reminders of Your Love
There are many ways of saying “I Love You” some verbal and others not. Through this blog, I’ve shared many different ways of sharing your love for your wife; some which are just for the moment and others that create a lasting reminder; even some that have required creating new habits or ways of expression.
Well, today we’re going to do one of those lasting reminders. Actually, the idea is to leave a reminder of your love in all the common places that your wife goes, so that she’ll see it all the time.
All you need to do this one is a computer, a printer and a little time. Do you see that heart up there? Well, the idea is to plaster that heart where your wife will see it regularly. So, right click on the heart, and save it to your computer. Then go into whatever program you have that allows you to print graphics. If you have a publishing program, like Microsoft Publisher, that would be best; you can even use a word processing program, like Microsoft Word if you don’t have anything better to use.
Paste the heart onto a page as many times as it will fit. If you want to, you can make the heart a little smaller to get it to fit; but don’t make it too small; you want her to be able to read the words. Print as many pages as you think you can use, and cut out the hearts.
Now that you’re armed with a collection of hearts, grab some tape and go around the house, sticking them in places where your wife will see. You want them in places where they’ll look natural, not the middle of some wall. You also want them in places where they can stay, without being in the way of other things. In other words, if you’re going to put it on her vanity mirror, do it in the corner, not in the middle. Here’s some ideas of where to put them:
The more good places you can find to put your little heart messages, the better. You want her to be able to see that constant reminder of your love. Granted, after a while, they’ll become part of the scenery and not seem so obvious to her. When that happens, do the same thing with a picture of a rose, sticking it so that it partially overlaps the heart, but not the words. That’ll make your romantic act a double whammy.
