Remember when I posted about how my marriage was struggling? I can’t tell you how often we have our lows, but with lows, we have our highs. We took a mini staycation up to Strawberry, AZ a few weeks ago. And ever since then, we have been on cloud nine. We needed a reset button, and I can’t be happier than I am right now. We talked, we dreamed, and we planned.
Nothing makes me feel more beautiful than the way I see myself in my husband’s eyes. Sure, it’s nice to hear the words ” You’re beautiful.” But, let’s be honest. I rarely hear that word come out of my husband’s mouth. And that’s ok. He makes me feel beautiful every day, and it’s not by telling me so.
I think we can all get caught up in wanting to be showered with gifts and compliments from our other half. But, what we don’t see is the different ways our spouses show us that exact thing we long for, in their own way.
I remember telling Joe “I don’t remember when the last time I heard you call me beautiful.” with that said, I felt sadness. Am I not beautiful in his eyes? Why doesn’t he ever tell me that I am beautiful? All the while, I was failing to see that every time he looks at me, he adores me. He doesn’t need to say much at all, for me to feel a deep love and respect. He buries all of my insecurities before they can overcome me, and he dreams my dreams. That is all I need to feel beautiful.
To my dear husband who dreams with me, feels all of my emotions with me, and cherishes all the flaws I bring to the table. I love you more Today than I did yesterday. You move me with more passion and love than ever before. Thank you for making me feel confident and beautiful without saying those words.
