Since I’ve decided there are enough memes out there, I have started just linking up my Wordy Wednesday posts with Wordless Wednesday memes. I’m such a rebel, huh?
I got into the shower this weekend and found a message waiting for me, courtesy of Brian.
Totally better than a bouquet of flowers, I think.
My “love language” is Words of Affirmation, according to the book Five Love Languages. That means that I feel most loved when I hear that I am loved or appreciated.
Brian and I read this book early on in our marriage, and it was a great eye opener for us. I had never really thought about the fact that what made me feel loved might not really work for Brian – the quiz revealed that his “love language” is Quality Time. Spending time together playing a board game or cooking dinner makes him feel the most loved.
If you haven’t read the book, there’s a short one-question quiz here to get a general idea of what your love language might be. I’m curious to know – what makes you feel the most loved? What’s your love language? Do you think your spouse’s love language differs from yours?
How adorable. It sounds like he is a great listener!
I love that book!! My love language is gifts. Yeah, my love can totally be bought LOL But seriously, this means if I do not get a gift for Valentine’s or my birthday, I don’t feel loved – even if he says it….I want him to show it….and doing the dishes (service) is totally NOT my love language. LOL
That was so very sweet of him – you are blessed!
Annie, that’s apparently how I best give love – so we’d totally get along, haha! If Brian’s had a bad week at work, I’ll go buy him something I know he’ll love to cheer him up.
that is absolutely awesome!
That is sweet! I need to check out that book – thanks!
Aww..that’s real love right there! :)
Awwww. How sweet. :-) I will have to check out that book. I think my husband and I definitely have different love languages.
And you can link up on my Wordless Wednesday post any time you want. :-D
I linked up! :)
You should definitely check out the book – we had fun taking the quiz and comparing our answers!
aw :) love that book! someone got it for us as a wedding gift. jason’s language is gifts and mine is acts of service :)
Heidi, I can see that for you – you do SO much for your family!
I love that book — my love language is acts of service . . . my husband’s is “words.” It’s crazy how much KNOWING that language for each person can make SUCH a difference.
I agree! It really helps us know how to be supportive and loving to each other in the ways that work best, and I think it’s contributed to the happiness of our marriage.
Love it! You make me want the book now!
My love language is affirmation
What a sweet hubby! My love language is Acts of Service
It has been awhile since I read the book but I am excited to take the quiz. Thanks for posting it.
That is so sweet, and especially so because he’s taking the time to love you in the way you most feel loved!
I have that book and need to read it!
He’s a good one! :)
That is so sweet.
That is sweet! I’ll have to check out that book.
That is so sweet! My hubby isn’t a romantic guy at all but he tells me loves me on the phone a few times a day. I took the quiz and found out that Acts of Service make me feel the most loved. When I read the definition it was right on the money! I will have to share this with my husband.
It’s always amazing to me how spot-on the descriptions seem to be!
Aww I love that. I need to read that book.
