We’ve all heard that love is a decision. Today put that notion into practice. Imagine the day ahead and the time you will spend with your spouse. Identify two things that you can do all on your own (i.e., don’t require your spouse’s cooperation or input) that would set the tone for a more loving day. Will you give her the TV remote? Make him a nicer-than-usual dinner? Do the dishes without being asked? Wear that outfit he likes? Be more patient with those mildly annoying habits? How will you make a decision to love…today?
