Normally I focus on things that he does or things that I admire about the way that he is, but this week I’m being a little superficial :) My husband has always concentrated on keeping himself in good shape. No matter how I look, he has always seen me as gorgeous and he’s always made it known that he keeps himself looking good so he doesn’t look like a “scrub” walking beside his Queen.
His physical upkeep is one of the biggest reasons that I’ve worked so hard to do the same — to maintain a nice appearance despite having all the excuses in the world to carry some extra weight (hellloooo… five kids LOL) — because I think it’s important for me to recognize his efforts and to do the same myself. Not only for looks, but also so that we can both share many wonderful years together in good health!
Yet and still, after all the beautiful words and considerations for one another, I have to say that from a selfish perspective, it’s nice that he’s so fun to look at :) He’s one sexy creature…
I love him for that.
What’s This Series About Anyway??
I believe that strong marriages rely on three key elements:
- Love – unconditional
- Communication – uninterrupted
- Affirmation – uninhibited
Everything else stems from how healthy the couple is in those three areas. Because of this, I’ve started communicating my love for my husband through weekly affirmations… those simple statements of truth that let him know I see all the ways he expresses his love for me. I’ve written a lot about what kind of wife I am and how I love and support my husband. This is the other side of that :)
