Nothing says I love you like..

Nothing says I love you like, well many things.  It depends on the person what says “i love you” to them.  With Valentines day around the corner I thought we could talk a little bit about expressing our love. As you know I love food. My BFF still jokes with people that they better be careful if they feed me they have me for life. She and I meet in a gym class in junior high and our first bonding moment was spent around her kitchen table with tortilla chips.

When my husband was wooing me, but before we were serious. He invited me over for dinner. He lived in a bachelor pad studio apartment.It had no stove or oven. So when he invited me over and told me he would be making dinner, I was a little skeptical.  He made an amazing dinner on the BBQ. T bone steaks, yams and asparagus. I decided to get serious about him after that!

This is me though, and while good food says “I love you” to a lot of folks It may not be their preferred way. The best way to find out what some one likes is to ask them. Their answer may surprise you.  It is also nice to observe people. Do you know your sweeties (or bffs, or  moms) favorite sandwich? what about favorite coffee? details like this really do matter.

You may be one of those people who can keep all those details in your head, but I can’t. I find a small note book with key information about people is helpful. I mean I can order a drink or sandwich for my hubby and for Little but the more people you have to remember for the harder it gets. It is also a great for keeping pesky details like favorite colors and sizes.

In general time and attention always say “I love you.” It tells them you value you them. This may mean doing things you don’t like to do. As an example. I dislike TV. A lot. My husband dose not feel the same way. Often I stay with him in the living room watching a program with him because while I dislike tv, I like my husband. If a show is important to him then I can be interested in it for the sake of him.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I think I should be a Stepford wife, vapid and only there to serve my man. I am saying that treating the special people in your life special is an act of love. Reciprocity is necessary for the love to bloom. Make sure you loved one knows what says I love you to you. Maybe at dinner tonight you can go around the table and ask everyone to fill in the sentence

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
