I never thought I would be one of those guys. The date of my anniversary is burned into my mind, but the day just snuck up on me. I thought it was still a few weeks away. So when my wife asked, “What are we doing today?” I should have known. However, instead I blurted out, “I don’t know. What do you want to do?” She continued, “Is there a reason we should do something special today?” Still, amazingly oblivious, I replied, “Umm, no.” And that’s how my life ended. Not really, but I had to work to dig myself out of a big hole.

This is the season for many anniversaries and we want our wives to know how much we love them. So, it’s time to take the 7 Day Anniversary Challenge. This is the season for many anniversaries and we want our wives to know how much we love them. So, it’s time to take the 7 Day Anniversary Challenge. Starting seven days before your anniversary, you are to give your wife one token and one reminder of your love for her. This can be in the form of a short love note, an item that is symbolic of something special in your relationship, or anything that means something to her and to your relationship. Here is a guide for you to follow, which will help you show you love your wife well.

Day 1:

Purchase her favorite candy and give it to her with a note sharing one of your favorite moments with her.

Day 2:

Spell out her name; for each letter, find an adjective to describe her, your love for her, or why you love her. Handwrite it on a piece of paper, a card, or something else. If you really want her to be touched, get one of your children to embellish the note.

Day 3:

Find pictures of you together that represent specific moments and memories you’ve spent together. Create a collage in the shape of a heart or just give her the pictures one by one and explain why you like them.

Day 4:

Use technology to make her feel special throughout the day by sending love notes, pictures of you, or anything that she’ll like to see.

Day 5:

Cook for her. Cook breakfast, prepare her lunch, and/or cook dinner for her. Let her sit back, relax, and be served by you and the kids if they’re there.

Day 6:

Read to her. Find some time alone, and pull out a marriage book or the Song of Solomon in the Bible and read to her lying next to you.

Day 7:

Pamper her. Give her a back or foot massage. Fix a nice bubble bath for her, with candles, and allow her to take as long as she wants.

Sound off: What are some other things to add to the list? It doesn’t have to stop after 7 days.

Huddle up with your kids and ask, “How can I better show you how much you mean to me?”
