Shawn and I dated 4 years, 3 months, 23 days. We’ve been married for 9 years, 5 months, 15 days.
It’s not something I think I’ll ever have figured out. In fact I hope I never do.
My Love Language is Affirmation. Words of love and appreciation do far more than cleaning the house. 😉
Shawn’s Love Language is Time. I don’t even need to read the book to know that.
So I’m learning. Learning to not be selfish with my personal time and wants. Learning to put down my phone and it’s Twitter capabilities. Learning to close my laptop with it’s Twitter, blog reading, blog writing, Hulu watching capabilities.
Because love is afterall…putting aside your wants for the desires for those of someone else.
There is a lot going on in our lives. There has been. Situations that require me to be a wife and a listener of him before I’m a tweeter, blogger, show watcher. Because he is more important than all of you and I’m not going to apologize for that.
Pray that God teaches me how to be a better wife to Shawn. That I’m less selfish.
What are ways you’re still learning to love your spouse if your married, if not do you pray for your future spouse and how you can be the wife/husband God desires you to be?
