Tip of the day:
If you haven’t recieved flowers from your mister in awhile, send him to the store for an ingredient you need for his favorite dish.
I sent Clay for a package of chicken for chicken & dumplings. He’s been on a “love high” for me ever since…helping me dice onions, carrot & celery and as he’s heading outside to blow leaves, he says, “You’re my favorite person in the whole world”.
Ladies, pay attention to the things your mister loves and surprise him with them from time to time for no reason at all. And, I do mean “from time to time”.
If offered too often, special things become boring and ordinary, ruining a good thing for you both. And, If he wants to dice vegetables or put away dishes….even though he may not chop them fast enough for you or know where you like things put, let him!
Remind yourself that he may not be the communicator you are. When we women have something to say, we are storytellers making sure you can see, feel, and smell, the entire thing in minute detail. His simple offer to help is his way of saying, thank you, I love you, I want to spend time with you doing this together. Love him for that!
Find new ways to connect and make his day…play cards or chess and let him win sometimes(🤣), actually watch the “whatever sport” he’s watching and cheer for his team, offer to scratch his back. (I have no idea why men seem to be like big bears with itchy backs all the time. Perhaps we should offer to wash their backs? I don’t know? Lol) Be his personal cheerleader and affirm him. Believe it or not, that big strong guy, he really needs that.
And when he wants to help, let him …..misplaced things can be put away later, turn the heat down on the stove for slower cooking and let him feel that togetherness with you. Drink in these moments like water for the soul. I’m so grateful for them and you will be too. 😊💕
