My love language...
Okay, about that last post, my love tank was on low. I went to Ohio to spend some much needed QUALITY time with my dad. Yes, I'm 47 and I'm a daddy's girl.
It was just what the doctor ordered. TV marathons (Law and Order & NCIS), junk food (pizza, cookies & wings), great coffee, with lots of cream, my pjs and endless laughter. Not to mention the Tender Loving Care. Just by being in his presence makes my heart happy. The serenity and the stillness of life there is priceless.
Do you know your love language? Mine happens to be quality time. Running a close second is Acts of service. Don't get me wrong, a girl loves to hear those infamous "I love yous" repeatedly from the right guy, but I want his actions to be in alignment with his words.
In the end, you'll discover what fuels your love tank, if you don't already know. Below are the (5) choices. I have the book and it talks in great detail about "our partner" not knowing it and working hard in all the wrong areas trying to please you. Just maybe if he/she knew your love language, something may shift in a positive direction. "Just food for thought."
