Our song for today could only come from Elvis and it is the hauntingly beautiful And I Love You So.
Now when I was debating what to use as my E word I asked my beloved what he thought E should be for. His suggestions were; Erotic, and Erogenous!! Strangely enough I didn't choose one of those and instead went for his one sensible idea which is Exploring.
Marriage involves exploration of many different types, especially as you get to know each other. It's getting to know likes and dislikes in all areas - physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. I don't mean that you should agree with each others views on the world, as your individuality is what attracted you to each other, but understanding what each of you have as your values and beliefs in life.
Exploring is also about finding out about this world together, having new experiences, and being curious about life. E is also for encouragement, and some of the things we've explored over the years would never have happened if it wasn't for my beloved's encouragement - I can be a bit of a scaredy cat at times.
I hope you haven't stopped being curious about the world or, if you're married, your special person.
This is a perfect quote, and captures what I've been saying:
