Got this from Elizabeth George’s book: A Wife After God’s Own Heart. Was apprehensive when my husband bought me the book ( he bought the husband version for himself) but its turning out to be pretty good. Its not too preachy and I like the down to earth suggestions. 9 years ago
I think it will make him happy to see me trying to learn his dialect because he’ll see that i’m trying to appreciate his roots. I do understand Bicolano a little bit since my dad is also a Bicolano but I never really learned how to speak the dialect fluently. I guess I should try even if it feels awkward.
And as a sure bonus… I’m sure it’ll make my in-laws and dad happy as well. 9 years ago
A few weeks a go I happened to tell my husband that he looked good in a particular shirt. Just today he told me that he chose to wear the shirt because I liked it. So i guess I should compliment him more often when I see something I like about him. Boosts his ego and makes me happy he looks good. 9 years ago
Okay so its harder than I thought it was. It wasn’t hard to see something to appreciate but it was pretty hard to think of a way to show it. I said thank you several times yesterday but I don’t know if he realized that I was trying to show him my appreciation. :p
Also after several thank yous it would sound pretty weird. I also fixed up our sleeping area before he got home so that he wouldn’t have to anything. But although I’m sure he thought that was nice and he appreciated it what I want him to see is that I appreciate HIM and the things he does and not make him appreciate me. This is weird. Oh well, I guess I have to come up with some creative ways of saying thank you every single day. 9 years ago
My husband and I are friends and we love each other but anyone who’s ever been in a relationship knows that it takes a lot of work to keep things running smoothly and to keep the fire burning. I regret to say that I have taken my husband for granted a lot of times. When he does something nice, however small or big, I feel good but rarely take time to show him my appreciation. On the other hand, when he does something that irks me I do complain and even nag. I’m not saying that I’m a very bad wife or that we have a bad relationship. I just think its about time for me to make some real effort to show him how much I appreciate him and to remind both of us just why we fell in love with each other. 9 years ago
