A little bit of me and a whole lot of you. Add a dash of starlight and a dozen roses, too. Then let it rise for a hundred years or two. It doesn’t need sugar ’cause it’s already sweet. It doesn’t need an oven ’cause it’s got a lot of heat. Just add a dash of kisses to make it all complete, and that’s the recipe for making love.
The truth in Harry Connick, Jr. words to his song “A Recipe for Love” stated above says it all. Allowing yourself to receive love is just as important as giving love. More importantly, another important ingredient to the Recipe for Love is to believe in your love which is profound to any marriage. Of course, there will be times when conflict rears its ugly head but it is how you deal with those conflicts that matter the most. For example, it is super important to remember that you love your spouse so this simple or maybe not so simple argument will not break you. Be mindful at all times that you can work through anything together. Trust in your love. Show your commitment to your partner by making sure he or she knows that breaking up or leaving is not an option. Share your goals so that you stay on the same page and understand one another’s direction.
Keep your love alive, vibrant and healthy by showing appreciation for your spouse and reminding yourself why you fell in love. Do something every single day to show your appreciation for your spouse. This does not mean you have to send flowers, etc. every day, but simple gestures such as leave each other text messages or notes on the pillow, passionate hugs and soft kisses work too. These small love gestures remind us of how important we are to each other.
Remember TMF readers, the smallest things you do will leave the biggest impression on your marriage, remarriage and relationships. It is truly one of the biggest components in the recipe of love.
Peace & Blessings,
