In the past, I have been guilty of dropping hints and wanting Mike (my husband) to understand what it is that I want. Sometimes it has been something I wanted him to do, like take out the trash or put his dishes in the dishwasher. Other times it has been something like having him rub my feet or back. But that is not fair to him or to me even.
I don’t like it when he does the same kind of thing with me, even though sometimes I can deduce what it is that he wants, I prefer to be asked. But that is really not good either. It is akin to pride or lording over him, which admittedly doesn’t sound like love to me.
Instead the proper thing to do is to ask for what you need or want. Ask politely, sweetly, respectfully! But ask for what you want or need.
If you are too tired, exhausted, or run down, you are probably finding it difficult to give your beloved the attention he needs, craves, and deserves. If you calmly tell him what you need to feel able to spend time with him alone, I bet he will gladly work out a way to make it happen.
Remember he loves and needs you!
Until next time, God bless,
