Here’s an idea for taking advantage of the situation the next time your sweetheart comes home from work stressed out.
Put together a kit which includes body lotion, scented candles and soft music. Place it in an out-of-the-way, easily accessible place. Don’t forget where it is and make sure your sweetheart doesn’t stumble upon it.
On the day your sweetheart comes in from a terrible, no good, totally awful days, it’s time for the kit.
Ask him/her to get comfortable and meet you in a quiet spot where she/he can take a load off their feet. The couch or a comfortable chair will do. Retrieve your kit.
Set the music playing, light the candles and offer to massage your sweetheart’s feet while he/she shares their day.
Let your touch calm your sweetheart and create the moment. You’ll find you’ll both benefit from your advance planning. Robert
