In appreciation for the love and commitment my darling wife shows me everyday, even though we fight, even though we argue, even though I work away, even though she nags me(joke =p), even though we miss each other terribly and are living in a perpetual state of financial chaos - She makes me smile just knowing that she chose me.

Through thick and thin, good and the bad, poorer and now richer both financially and spiritually I couldn't have gotten where I am today without her.

Do you have someone like that in your life?

My husband. He has been my rock, my partner, my everything and I couldn't imagine a better man in my life. He is a wonderful father, a sensitive old soul and he lets me be me.

My husband :)

He's just .....amazing.

I've been bed ridden since surgery last week and he's spent every evening with me in bed. Making dinner, doing all the chores that I normally do, being Dad of the year. And working 12 hour days.

I was looking at him last night as he slept. I couldn't sleep, but he was laying next to me...so beautiful. I stirred a bit to get comfortable and he reached for my hand.

:eek:

The tears welled up.

My H and I were sitting on the couch last night and he started coming on to me in this really creepy way.... We'd had a long day, it was late and were winding down and no way I could've mustered up the energy for sex, so I asked him if his creepy come on's were suppose to be turning me on, he said no and that he just wanted to see his wife smile for once tonight.

It's little things at times for me.

Yes my wife, her smile, her real smile, the one, only I get to see that is for me and me alone, knowing that I put it there...

last night she had one of her horrible migraines, she was just crying that it hurt so bad and the meds were not helping, so I just started
softly massaging her head, her face,her temples, kissed her tears, talked soothingly to her, told it will be ok, I'm here I will take care of you, took her shirt off off and massaged her shoulders her neck,
her back, kissed her back etc softly, told how much I love her...then slowly she started to calm down, her breathing changed slowed down and she started to relax...I put every ounce of my love in my finger tips, trying to pull away her pain, trying to make her feel better...I did this for about an hour all the while,just focusing on her and my love for this wonderfull woman.

I got one of those smiles this morning...

That is so sweet! I have read that ice cream can help "break up" migraines. Something about "brain freeze"...... Has she tried that? Although your way sounds much better! :D

Just before she left for work she was really cranky. She was stressed about work. She can't wait for the week ends.

Then she called later and said she is sorry about the LB withdrawal. We had a laugh, and cant wait for the week end to start...I smiled

About 3 minutes ago. Got a text that just read "Love you, baby".

Oddly enough, I'd just finished ordering her a bouquet of her favorite flowers about 15 minutes before that to surprise her tonight. I've been seeing her for over a year, and for a variety of reasons, this is the first time I've done that. Looking forward to the expression on her face when she sees them.

I have to admit - I don't regularly buy flowers for my wife....bad me.
But when I do, after the initial - What have you done - looks, she loves the surprise.
I find its the little things, not necessarily the bought or paid for things, that mean the most to our significant others.
Dont get me wrong buying a present or a nice arrangement of flowers always works a treat but I feel its the things we do that have no financial reward, or gain, that can mean the most.

Like massaging her migraines away, like spending time watching her boring...I mean interesting shows..lol, like calling or texting just to say hi or I love you. And yes, even those surprise bouquets for when they come home - just to see the joy in the eyes of the person you want to make happy and know that you were able to do so makes it all worth while.

I love your username, I say that about myself all the darn time, that is why I am still here at this forum after 2 yrs, I need to leave this place.... I'd rather have my husband grab my butt than give me flowers...I would probably complain I wanted roots with them or something. I can't see spending $$ on that & throwing them away... I'd rather him go in the back yard and pick some, which he has done on a rare occasion...but then gave them to the kids to give me, ha ha ...It's the thought that counts.

I am not a gift person... I want his time and his touch.

That is what does it for me.....and him....... keeps us both :):) .....even when my husband is driving, he reaches for my hand...every drive ...little things like that....

Last :).... when he left for work this morning.....with the kiss , an "I love you...be careful, don't hit any deer" (cause I was going out today).... and I tell him "Don't get hit by a train"..... as he leaves with his lunch bucket. :)

Oh, trust me. She'll get her ass and most other body parts grabbed, touched, and tasted as well. The flowers are for her to take back to her place after said grabbing, touching, and tasting. :). Something that will keep her smiling evn when I'm not around her. She's been going through a bit of a stressful time the past couple of weeks, so I figured it was time for something "above and beyond".

Interesting title and thread, not sure if subconciously affected me today or not but today at lunch break I was smiling like crazy.

Let me elaborate... I don't remember the last time I smiled like that about my ex W, it has probably been a couple years since (though maybe it was in fact more recent, just overshadowed by her infidelity and the divorce). But I have had one relationship since - and it was sexual, very much so in fact, and even though it has ended I got enough good memories out of it that today I was beaming thinking of them.

I kind of realized that I've spent so much time focussed on the rejection of my ex W and my own low SE that I have had nothing but anxiety and it has shut me down. But today I decided to try just thinking of that really great time with my most recent ex GF in the front seat of my... err well nm not important to you, just me... and it was such a great feeling (I know it was "just sex" except to her and I it was a kind of love too) that I couldn't contain my pleasant feelings... and the result is that I was actually making the people I was around today happy too, I was charming today and even had a bunch of pretty women laughing (and the guys visibly jealous of me). It is the first time I've felt this way in quite a while, I have a lot of gratitude for the experience I got to share with her that made those memories.

Wifey had the day off from work. I got a text around 10AM telling me that sleeping in is nice, but waking up in my arms is better.

Tonight my husband bought me my favorite candy bar, Lindt Intense Orange. He is in a deep depression and we are sexless so this was a surprise. A small step, but a step nonetheless!

I reacted like he gave me a diamond ring! Is my reaction pitiful?
