Really Loving Your Husband...

Yesterday on twitter, @pinkginghamom posted a link about "Romancing Your Husband." This got me really thinking about my hubby's needs lately. Now, don't get me husband is my best friend and I believe we have a really good thing going....but I can always strive a little harder to fill my husband's "love tank!"

Have you ever read "The 5 Love Languages" by Gary Chapman?  If you haven't, it is a $5 book that will CHANGE YOUR MARRIAGE FOR THE GOOD!
My husband's love language is words of affirmation AND physical touch. If I'm not meeting those basic needs of my husband....his love tank depletes and it turns into grumpy town around here!
But it goes both ways.....
MY love language is quality time and acts of service. If my husband isn't helping to meet those basic needs of mine, then my own love tank takes a dump!
Once we read this book....everything truly just clicked for us. We know each other's needs, and we know how to fix things when its not working (which...yes, its true....still happens quite frequently. But least we're trying)!

I also need to mention that my husband truly does do a great job of trying to meet these needs! He spends a lot of time with me when I need him too. He runs the vacuum and takes my son to the park when I need some time to myself. He is a great man and I'm so thankful that God gave him to me! He is a gift!

I hope you'll check out this book! AND I hope both you and your spouse will figure out and start trying to fill each other's love tank! can follow Dr. Gary Chapman's blog here:
