I’ve said this before,
Time is the most valuable gift you can ever give your sweetheart.
What does that mean to you?
- Dedicating an hour listening to your sweetheart talk?
- Making dinner together?
- Taking time from doing something you want so you can be together?
Romancing with time means you give your sweetheart a bit of your day to be together. You forego your busyness so you can be together share time and space.
Sometimes the gift of time protects your sweetheart, giving him/her a breather.
Your sweetheart’s life can seem like an crushing avalanche of people and events that never end. Everyone and everything scoops up their every waking minute with endless demands.
This gift of time provides your sweetheart a few minutes of protection from the onslaught. Set an appointment with your sweetheart or take on one of his/her tasks. Then let your sweetheart relax – maybe in solitude and silence.
The gift of time can also be respect.
You both set aside 30 minutes to plan your upcoming vacation. Your full of ideas, which become an enthusiastic torrent of words. The 30 minutes stretches into an hour and you continue, obliterating more unscheduled time.
A respectful gift of time means I only take the agreed minutes. I organize my ideas and present them succinctly, giving my sweetheart time to process & respond. We’ll probably finish within the allotted 30 minutes. But if we don’t, I suggest we stop and continue finish later. I respect my sweetheart’s time.
I encourage you to give your sweetheart the gift of time by:
- Sharing time & space,
- Protecting him/her, or
- Respecting their time.
Maybe you’ll give all three. Robert
