Fill up the tank…tonight
Okay, I know this is kinda last minute with it being tomorrow and all. But a great way to serve your spouse is to make sure they’ve got a well-filled tank of gas. The smile on your spouse’s face will be your first sign that happiness is on the way.
Lots of hugs and kisses all day long
Nothing says I want you to be happy like warm hugs and soft kisses. From the time you wake up until the time you hit the sheets, pucker up and let your spouse have it. It might feel a bit cheesy at first, but the effects will be long-lasting.
Okay, this will take some focus. But, it’s kind of like fasting. Once you put your mind to it, you make sure to keep the food out of your mouth. Well, the same goes for watching what comes out of it. Make it a special point to contribute to your spouse’s happiness by seasoning your words with praise. Regardless of what’s going on right now, set the criticism to the side and keep the positivity coming.
A love note on the windshield is sweet
So, I’m not talking about a full-blown love letter here. But stick a post-it note under the wipers with a few heartfelt words and your partner will get the message. Help your spouse start off the day happy by sending them on their way with sweet nothings on the windshield.
A nice meal…at home or out on the town
Sitting down to a nice meal together is a great way to put a smile on your spouse’s face. Throw in some candles and flowers and create an ambiance to remember. Whether it’s a home-cooked meal or a night out on the town, a dinner date definitely brings the happy.
Take a walk, hold hands, talk
After sharing a meal, walk it off. Taking a walk together, holding hands, and talking could be a nice throwback to your dating days. Maybe you walk through your neighborhood. Or, maybe you walk around town. Flirt with each other. Talk about the things that make your relationship work. Simply put, enjoy each other’s company.
The natural byproduct of supporting your spouse’s happiness includes all the feels that lead to a passionate night of making love. After giving of your heart and mind throughout the day, it’s time to give your body. You’ll be happy. Your spouse will be happy. And your “I want you to be happy” day will be a resounding success.
