Hubs and I have a lot of conversations over breakfast 🥞 . It is really the only time I get to see him. He works at night and I work in the day so we run on opposite schedules and we MAKE the time ⏱for each other. One breakfast morning he is making himself an egg sandwich and pouring a hot cup of ☕️ coffee. I am thinking to myself "danggggg that looks good. I hope he sees the drool coming from my mouth and makes me one.“ You guys my hubby is a PHENOMENAL cook. He belongs in a two-time five-star restaurant and then on the show Beat Bobby Flay.
Hubs would so win. 🥇
He didn't make me one. I was so sad. It ruined my whole day. (Remember in my other blog about communicating? Well this scenario happened before I learned to talk.)
Later on that day he went to the store and got some personal items. Now when I go to the store I am always thinking about what can I pick up for my Hunny or child. It’s just in my nature now.
So hubs comes home from his journey to the store and my face lights up thinking he got me something or remembered I needed deodorant.
Nope, nothing. 😡😣😠
I don’t know if I was PMS’ing 🩸or what but I was feeling so emotional that day that I was just crying crying crying 😢.
So the next day I go to work to tell my coworker what happens and how emotional I was. She told me to read the five love languages then explain to hubs what my languages are.
So what did I do? I bought the book on my phone and read it for 2 days.
The five love languages: Word of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Quality Time, The Act of Service, and Receiving Gifts.
At this point in our marriage (3) years married; my love languages are Receiving Gifts and Words of Affirmation.
So I waited a few breakfast mornings until the time was right. I explained to Hunny about the book and what my language is. Do you know what he said? “That makes total sense.” 🧐I know I couldn't believe he said that but he did....so ill take it!
True story people …. Hubs now remembers if he’s at the store to ask me if I need anything or will randomly bring me the best cookies in the whole world. He also tells me he’s sorry if he hurts my feelings or ask me if I want him to make me breakfast. He even skimmed through the book and figured out his own love language. sappy wife moment. I was so flipping happy ☺️. ❤️❤️❤️
Just so you know though I believe love languages can change over time. Now a few years later and I think my language is physical touch and quality time. There is no better feeling than we are curled up watching a movie or show with my hubby ♥️🥰asks
