Day 8: What does romance mean to me?
To me, romance is the relationship I have with my love, Peter. It is all the tender moments we share--the whispers, looks, smiles, and conversations that are rich with the love we share for each other.
It is learning how to love each other better. For example, we've taken the time to read (oh so many) books about how to understand each other and treat each other better. The ideas in Love & Respect and especially I Promise You (or His Needs, Her Needs but I haven't read that one yet) have been fantastic and I think any one in a serious relationship should read them, even if they aren't engaged or married.
It is all the little things we do for each other. We write each other notes, give each other backrubs, assist each other with projects, get gifts (like cookies for him or books for me!) for each other, and so much more.
We dream together, and we listen to each other. We talk about what we want to do in life, where God is taking us, and all the adventures we have together.
We comfort each other. Lately its been him comforting me more than the other way around, but our relationship is a safe place and God definitely uses each of us to bless the other with comfort.
Romance is all these things and so much more to me. Romance is my relationship with Peter.
