OK guys, how many times a day do you tell your wives "I love you"? Hopefully at least two or three times. Well here is a challenge for you.
At Eastlake this morning Matt said something that really stuck in my head so I thought I would share it. When we tell our wives "I love you" let's try and add "because ...".
This will be tough for most guys if you are anything like me. I am not constantly thinking about why I love my wife. I am just not wired that way. I love her and I tell her I love her and that is that, right? Well not for Rebekah. She (and I think this is true for most women) is always wondering why I love her, or if I still love her, or how I could possibly love her.
So the challenge is this, start telling your wife, "I love you because..." fill in the blank. Now this is going to take some thought for most of us and here is the tricky part, once you start you won't be able to stop. You will probably need several things at one time also. Here is why, if you say "I love you because you made an excellent dinner." They are going to say "So you only love me because I feed you?" If you aren't prepared with several other reasons your are going to be stuck.
So put some thought into it. While you are at work or going about your day try and come up with a few good "I love you because..."s for when you get home. Don't be a wimp about it, dig deep and really tell her why you love her. It will be worth it. Your wife will know you love her and why you love her. If you tell her every day she won't ever have to wonder, she will know and she will love you for it.
