Hubby Love...

My husband loves me!

Not a big news flash, I know, but it is one worth repeating and I don't really brag about him often enough so today I’m going to go ahead and brag!  He went grocery shopping alone yesterday and as most of you wives know, that can be quite an adventure in and of itself.  You never know what may find its way home with him, am I right?

So, he went shopping to pick up a few things we need, went without a list and the only thing I asked for specifically was two Fuji apples to assuage my peanut butter ‘n apple snack craving I’ve had lately.  We usually go shopping together, in fact, we do almost everything together, but I was feeling a little ‘off’ and he went alone.
Thyme was on his side!

I wasn’t expecting anything more than my two apples and our needed things, so when he came in with multiple plastic bags hanging off his arms I was surprised.  We didn’t really need that much stuff, but I was pleasantly surprised by his choices.  He bought various sugary snacks for himself, my two Fuji apples, our regular grocery items, a rotisserie chicken, cottage cheese, potato salad without mustard, a mini cherry pie, green grapes and two bananas.

While I’m sure you are not impressed with our grocery list, I am!  You see, without my asking, he chose food that I love, that he doesn’t care for, because he knew that I would enjoy them.  He chose the chicken and the cottage cheese because I love them, he remembered that I detest mustard so chose the potato salad accordingly, he thought of me as he chose my favorite type of pie, and he knew that I can’t go a week with only two measly little apples in my usually fruit heavy diet.

After twenty-one years of marriage he knows me, he knows my likes and preferences, he thinks about me when I’m not with him, and makes an effort to make me happy.  Of course, our relationship is not perfect and there are days where we both are a bit crunchy, but I gotta tell you, I am so incredibly blessed by this man God has given me!

So no matter where you are in your relationships, whether you are just getting started or been together for decades, take some time out to let your significant other know just how much you love them, appreciate them and want the best for them.  Do something unexpected, something that is uniquely suited to your spouse, something that shows them that you are thinking of them.

Take it from me, you will love the results!
