My husband and I have been so very blessed when it comes to love. That’s why I wanted to share this post, 50 Romantic Ways To Tell Your Huband You Love Him.
We’ve been through it all- miscarriage, illness, the death of a child, losing parents, too many moves to count, and the list goes on. And to top it off we work in family law which as you can imagine involves a great deal of stress and being subjected to a great deal of other people’s misery and sadness, Did I mention we now have three teens living under the same roof with us? :o)
It certainly helps that we are so very compatible and each other’s very best friend.
We make each other laugh daily through thick and thin.
It’s more than just these things though. We really work at it.
First and foremost we’re kind to each other.
I think this is a gift we’ve been given because we met after each of us had been through divorce and extreme heartbreak. I imagine it’s also a factor that we’re older and have more tolerance and patience. Back to working at it though.
When I say we work at it I mean we do little things that have a huge impact on one another.
One of my favorite books is 10,000 Ways To Say I Love You by Gregory J.P. Godek. That’s where I find some of the best inspirational material to show my husband just how much I love him. (I just bought the Kindle edition to have it on my phone so that I can find a romantic idea at a moments notice.- It just makes me feel like I’m on the ball when it comes to proving to him just how much I love him and remember loving people are loved people!:o))
