Mr. Wonderful tells me he loves me when he makes me the sweetest coffee in the morning. I hear his love when he calls me after dropping his girls off at school, just to chat and connect. I feel loved when he takes care of the dishes or insists I sit down instead of folding another load of laundry (knowing he'll tackle it instead). I am most confident of his love when he ends his day by wrapping his long arms around me and we fall asleep together - seriously, he does this every night. Touch is one of my primary love languages.
Words are his primary love language, so I say the words often. I also try to find unexpected ways to use words. Before we married, Mr. Wonderful never bothered to put the roll of T.P. on the actual dispenser, but I've noticed since I moved in that he takes that extra step. I really appreciate it! So when I saw the roll was getting low...I put a note on the next roll:
On a morning I knew he would be awake before me, I left a lipstick message on his mirror.
Do you think he got the message about the way I feel?
I send text messages. I speak words. I make his favorite cookies and I brag on him whenever I can. I want to communicate my love for my own husband in ways he can 'hear.' I don't ever want him to wonder how I feel. I want to be his 'sure thing.'
How do you tell those you love how much you care? What is something intentional you can do this weekend?
