After almost 9 years of marriage, I’ve learned a couple things that really make my husband happy. This clean island counter in our kitchen…is one of them! Something about him coming home from a day at work to see a cleaned off counter.
One of my husband’s strongest love language is Acts of Service (here are a couple previous blog posts about the 5 Love Languages). You see, my domestic skills are…developing. As a Mompreneur, I will often use the extra couple minutes to do one more income producing activity or spend quality time with the boys, than tackle the domestic chore list. It was just how I was raised.
I’m finding or should I say, making time, in this new season of my life to do the little things. Dinner on the table 3 nights in a row with ease and my hubby returned home to a clean counter.
It’s the little things…that keep a marriage strong…that keep the world going around. Keep surprising & delighting others in your life.
Even if your husband doesn’t always notice, take joy in “how” and “when” you do things for them!
What is your partners love language? Physical touch is probably the obvious one!! However beyond that, I bet there are little things that make them tick. Does he know what yours are? As I discussed in this post – most people assume what others are, but don’t always really know!
Marriage is 100%, 100% – NOT 50%-50%.
