The other night I told my husband, "I worry about you and how you are feeling or doing when you are at work." He responded with a smile, "Thank you for worrying about me. I love that you care so much about me and my happiness."
It was a simple message, and shared in just a few words, but the effects of that small conversation will last us a lifetime. I have talked about going on dates and making time to go out sans kiddos to invest in your marriage, but I think I have forgotten to share a bigger message.
Sharing your feelings and your love for your spouse is such an important piece of a happy life with your best friend. Remember that just because you think it, doesn't mean they know how you feel. I thought my husband would know that after five years of marriage I worry about him and his happiness, and maybe he did, but he wanted or needed to hear me say it. That is his love language.
Five years in and I am still working on being the best wife I can be, but for him it is totally worth it. Love languages are no joke! What's your love language?
