I have to admit that when I started this new Tuesday thing with Lauren, I didn’t think it would be this hard. I mean, I love my husband, but how hard can it be to come up with extra little things to make sure he knows I love him to the moon and back? It’s hard, ya’ll! And frustrating, too. More on that later.
This week, I started a new sticky note for J and me to pass back and forth to each other in secret hiding places. Since I lost the other one, it was the least I could do, right? I put it in his lunch one morning for a nice surprise at work. I haven’t seen that note since so I'm pretty sure it's in the trash. Oh well.
I also made sure to tell him all week how excited I was for him to attend an all day men’s conference with other men in our church. I also told him that I would miss him but that I had some surprises planned for him that day. (Please note that on my list of things to do that day was to hang a print I had framed for him for Christmas. It is still not on our walls, ya'll)
I got a little frustrated this week when I wasn’t feeling as if my “extra” love was even being noticed. I am fully aware this is the human side of me and that I just need to suck it up and love my husband, but still. And, we got into a huge fight one morning, so I was feeling even more discouraged than I was before. Two days later, the hubs gave me flowers and called them "just because" flowers. I call them make up flowers due to the fight two days before, but I'll let that one lie. (This is a perfect example of loving my husband: letting him believe he is right when really, I know I am!)
