Turns out… He knows me

If you recently ready my last post about the whole donut saga…. You will know that I had some doubts that my husband knew me… 

I’m not going to get into dragging on about the truth that I’ve been sick this week and off my game and slightly needy and a little over the top… Because that would be boring. But it would explain my behaviour…. 

I ended up quizzing my husband… I had to…for my own piece of mind… I had to.

 I asked him what he would plan for me if he had to plan a day of all my favourite things(removing the reality that I’m on oxygen and limited with how long I can be off oxygen)…. I gotta say… He was spot on! He knows what I like! He actually described the most perfect day I could ever ask for…. 

He was throwing ideas around like a professional and I felt so relived. Secretly… I was praying he didn’t ask me what I would do for his day! My mind went into overload trying to work out what he would like… I’ll have to do some research on that one and be more in tune with his needs.

Can you honestly say you know what makes your partner happy? Are you a giver or a taker? Or is it fair? 

I read a book a long time ago that always stuck with me… The five love languages by Gary Chapman. In this book he talks about loving your partner the way they want to be loved not the way you want to be loved.

I think I’ve forgotten to apply the golden rules of that book. Time to re-read it I think.

It’s so easy to get consumed by work and the daily running of life with a child and busy schedule… Romance sometimes takes a back seat. 

It doesn’t matter how long you have been with your partner… Relationships take work… Every day…. Keeping the love alive and the romance going.

I think treating every day like Valentine’s Day might be a little tricky… But I think that would be a start on how to keep the spark alive.

What will you do for your partner today to show them you love them?

    I guess I’m more of a taker unfortunately. Well, my husband would now say that I give all day long. I don’t give things though. I usually have no clue what to give him. But you just inspired me to do something that makes him truly happy again… I’ll let you know when it’s done.
