Last week, we celebrated Valentine's Day, and to celebrate my darling husband, I posted something I love about him daily on Facebook for 10 days. It was really mushy and probably grossed some people out!! 🙂 ♥

I wanted to explain why I did it…not to show anyone up, gross anyone out, or to be Pollyanna-ish. But I did it to honor and lift my husband up! One of his main love languages is Words of Affirmation. (See this book, the Five Love Languages, to read all about the way we love each other in any relationship!)

Mr Gorgeous isn't perfect…pretty close, but not perfect!! He has his issues…but if I sat around and dwelled on his "issues", all I would think about would be his issues!! So instead, I decide to focus on what I love about him! Who wants to sit around and think about what is irritating you about someone? How is that productive?

Here's the rub…

When I do this, (think on his awesomeness), he becomes even more attractive, more adorable, more fun to live with…and he senses that I am even more in love with him!! He starts thinking about my good qualities…like, being able to buy fabric well, picking the perfect restaurant to eat out at…you know, those important qualities!!

Remember, it's not a lie…it's not acting falsely…it's dwelling on what is right and wonderful about my loving man!! It works in any relationship…and in life in general!

And one of the best qualities of Mr Gorgeous is that he encourages me in my hobbies, especially sewing!!!
