When is the last time you actually mailed a letter? It is still a nice surprise to get something personal in the mail. Write your wife a handwritten love letter and mail it. Write about some specific things you love about her.
If you happen to travel, mail it while you are away.
Many times men focus on their careers and their wives end up taking up the slack at home. This can be an overwhelming burden that woman can certainly handle but was not the way God designed the marriage relationship.
This week, look for ways you can take the lead and offload some of the family responsibilities. Whether this is stepping in for discipline of the children, taking on some extra chores, or just planning the week's events, give your wife some relief. Make leading by example a consistent part of your life.
Life goes by at such a fast pace that we often forget to express gratitude to the ones we love. Get alone and think about all the things you appreciate in your wife. Write them down and thank God as you remember each one individually. Finding ways this week to let her know how grateful you are for all she does for you and for who she is as a person.
Each of our wives is unique and special in their own way. They have they own likes and dislikes, personalities, and love languages.
Take time this week to review all our Marriage Warrior missions and let your wife pick out the top 5 or so that meant the most to her. Write them down and pick out one this week to do again.
Keep the list and use as you are led.
Life can get so busy we can forget to take time to laugh. Laughter really is the best medicine and can change the whole atmosphere of our home.
Head to Youtube, Netflix, or the local library. Watch a comedian or become one by telling some jokes yourself. Life is too short to take everything soooo serious.

Life is filled with the memories we make with the people we love.
Take a family adventure to someplace you have never been. Yesterday, we took a day trip to Natural Bridge, AL (shown in the picture) and Dismals Canyon. It was a great day to just get away from it all and enjoy being together.
