There is one question I try to ask myself every single day that has had an incredible impact in every aspect of my marriage. It's a very simple yet powerful tool that enhances love and intimacy every time it is used. This one question can change your marriage. The question is:
How have I shown my wife that I love her today?
The how forces us to see if we've done something identifiable, the shown makes us ask ourselves if we've done something our wives have actually been able to see, and today gives us a time limit in which to do it. This question helps us remember to remember to love our wives. Asking this question has gotten me off my butt and into the kitchen to wash dishes many times, and her sweet "Thank you" has always made it worth it. I want her to see how much I love her, and that will only happen when I am consciously thinking about how to do it.
Start asking yourself this question today. Print it out and tape it the top of your monitor, set an alarm in your phone, or tattoo it backwards on your forehead. Let this be the start of phone calls and text messages of sweet nothings throughout your day. Let this be an offer to fold the laundry, bathe the kids, or vacuum the living room. And, if all of your creativity fails, simply go to your wife and ask, "How can I show you how much I love you today?"
