Today’s inspiring romance comes from a book called, Ways Say I Love YouTo Those You Love The Most , by Stephen Arterburn, Carl Dreizler & Jan Dargatz.
As many of us are aware, there is a wonderful program called “Make a Wish Foundation“. This foundation makes dreams come true for kids with terminal illnesses. Isn’t that just a great way to say “I love you”?
So, today’s idea is based on the same principle – make a wish come true for someone you love.
Have you ever sat down with someone and talked about your dreams and what you wanted to do in the future. A goal, perhaps, or something you’ve been saving up for?
On my fifth wedding anniversary, my husband took me to Hawaii. Okay, not really. A couple we knew who had been married a week before us were going to Hawaii, my husband and I couldn’t afford such a lavish trip, so instead, my husband decorated our bathroom with lais, fake palm trees, and wrote and drew on our bathroom mirror. He filled the tub with water, and while our oldest was napping we put on our swimsuits, sat in the tub, and snacked on pineapple, Mandarin oranges, and laughed.
It was the most special anniversary gift my husband had ever done for me, one that I shall cherish for a very long time.
Your goal is to find out one wish of your loved one and creatively make it come true. Don’t be discouraged if it is something you can’t give them, but remember you can support them. If your loved ones wishes, for example, to write a book – buy them a pen and journal to get started. If their wish is to go to europe someday, start a savings account, or like my husband create the next best thing.
Have fun, and give it a try.
