Heart From Roses by Petr Kratochvil
So often we wives get caught up in romance movies or novels and we wonder why our men aren't as romantic as the ones in those fictional stories. Lately I've been thinking about how some men treat their wives and how well my man treats me. Just today, as I've been getting ready to leave for my trip, Wes has done several things for me that say, "I love you!" so clearly that I don't need him to buy me flowers or candy or any of those other things that we think of as romance!
~ He filled up the car with gas for me
~ He gave me a little extra money "just in case" - he said he doesn't like for me to be out with no extra money should I need it
~ I started to clean up the car, and he vacuumed it for me without saying a word
~ He got out the little cooler I'll be using to pack my lunch before I had a chance to get it
~ He is printing out a map for me with detailed directions
~ He told me the best places to buy gas along the way
~ He's being a big flirt! ;)
Now I don't mind getting flowers and things like that, but these little things he does to take care of me are just as special . . . if I take the time to see them! Sometimes we don't see the little things because we're looking for the big things!
What kind of things has your husband done lately that show that he loves you? Let him know you appreciate them (I did!) and see the true romance in your life!
