First Cup of Coffee: Awaken Your Relationship
The snooze has been hit for the fifth and final time, you head to the bathroom, splash some water on your face, check your reflection in the mirror, and slowly the fog begins to lift and the day begins. The brain starts working again and then it hits you. You catch a whiff of the coffee brewing in the other room.
Ahh, a good cup of java welcomes you to another day. It provides that needed jolt to your system. Similarly, jolts can be added to your relationship each day.
There are some simple things you can do to awaken your relationship. There are some not-so-simple things to try.
The key to waking up your relationship — do something.
The greatest thing about a good cup of coffee in the morning is there are endless varieties (listed in order of caffeinated jolt level).
So what kind of coffee would you like today?
DECAF: Say “I love you” every day to your spouse. This sounds simple,
and it is—but it’s great to hear each day.
HAZELNUT: Take your spouse out on a date. Actually call them and ask them out. Don’t assume. Take care of the babysitting. Dress nicely. Show up at the front door, and head out together. Take your time.
100% COLUMBIAN: Talk. Talk about your day, the kids, work, what- ever. Just talk. Spend time listening to your spouse and sharing your thoughts and ideas along with theirs.
LIGHT ROAST: (Bet you thought this should be up higher on the list, actually this has more caffeine than dark roast). Change up your routine together. Sit at different places around the dinner table. Sleep on the other side of the bed. Small changes can provide big jolts to the system.
ESPRESSO: Keep your eyes open while kissing. Keep your eyes open during sex. Look at each other. See each other. Not just their body, their eyes, their spirit, their soul.
DOUBLE ESPRESSO: Eyes open orgasm. Connect with your eyes at the culmination of the encounter. Stay with each other after sex is over. Breathe together. Talk. Don’t rush to move on to something else.
Coffee is a great addition to a morning, afternoon, or evening. Waking up a marriage is a great addition to life.
