You may recall last week I sent a letter to my husband, listing a dozen things I love and appreciate about him. I mailed the letter on Friday and it was delivered on Saturday. He is usually the one who walks out to check the mail and he always brings it in and either puts it on my desk or leaves it on the kitchen counter.
When I mailed the letter I printed out a label so he wouldn’t recognize my handwriting on the envelope and of course I didn’t put a return address on it. I guess he thought it was junk mail and he didn’t even open it. I nonchalantly picked it up and handed it to him. He rolled his eyes and opened it and I left the room right after he started reading it.
I had mentioned in my previous post that the look on his face would be priceless. I was the one who likely had the “priceless” look when he walked into the kitchen.
His eyes were sweating!! Big time!! I felt AWFUL!!
He assured me it was because he was completely caught off guard and that he loved getting the letter, yet he felt undeserving of the praise I put upon him. By that time we both had sweating eyes. The letter made his day and it made mine too. I love making my husband happy!!
It truly is more blessed to give than to receive.
I would love to have you share your stories of how you unexpectedly remind your spouse of your love and appreciation.
