His Eyes Were Sweating!

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.

    Even though I am no longer with my then-husband, I remember to this day the surprise and look of “Really, this is for ME?” on his face. I had typed out every single verse of Song of Solomon and cut them into tiny slips of paper. I hid the first one in his lunch that day and slid it into the baggie with his sandwich. The next day I hid it inside a baggie and then inside the lid to his thermos. I found creative ways of hiding the little slips of paper for him. I talked to him years later after we divorced and he said he still remembers my “love notes”.

    If I ever get married again, I may use your method of mailing him a letter. I love your term “sweating eyes”. You are such a blessing to all those around you Janice. ((huuuugggggssss))
    I love giving and receiving those little notes.
    You have made my day!! Thank you so much for blessing me today.

    Well, I’m glad to know both of ya’ll’s eyes were only sweating. I’d hate for you to do something mushy like crying! 🙂

    Shh! 🙂
