I have been thinking about my marriage and what has made it survive. I even created an itty bitty Tidbits of Experience for Marriage Bliss eBook this past weekend. However, by no means does this book cover all of the things that I feel lead to a marriage of bliss.
I shared this post on my personal Facebook page, and felt compelled to add more to it today.
He picked me flowers the other day just out of the blue and gave them to me. I was so touched by it because it’s been a long time since he’s given me flowers. He use to shower me with roses every time he got a paycheck. I have roses all over my house from him in many forms and fashions. I have treasured every one of them.
I’m going to brag some more on him. He strives to make our marriage survive. He’s changed many things about himself that I didn’t like when we were dating. He has quit smoking, drinking, and has stopped interacting with some people who I felt was not a good influence on our relationship. I’ve not managed to make even half of the changes within myself that I know he’d love to see happen.
However, I was reading a post about healing ears. All I could think about was the fact that Del has wonderful healing ears. He has always been a remarkable listener. He chooses his words very carefully too when we have our heart to heart talks.
I had a person comment that they wanted to know how to get their wife to wear lingerie. I have to say that when Del shows me his love for me, it makes me want to do those special things for him. I want to look sexy for him, and I know he loves it when I wear lingerie. I picture all of the little things I can do to make him as happy as he makes me. My simple answer is to love her with all you have. Find her love language and actually use it to make her know you love her for her. When you do that like my husband does so well, then wives are more inclined to do the things you love. It’s easy to love someone who loves you completely.
I want to hear you brag on your spouse. What do they do that makes you happy?

I love this post. I need to do one about my husband. I have Lupus so there are times that it is hard for me to get out of bed. He shows me he loves me by helping with house work and taking care of me. I also love the Love Language book!
I have a friend who also suffers with this issue, and she has some pretty rough days. So, for your husband to be so supportive of you with Lupus that is saying a lot about him! Sounds like you have a good man.
He admits when he is wrong (and I am RIGHT!)! 😉
That is such a blessing for sure. When a man admits he’s wrong it shows he is grown up and wise.
Good communication and day-to-day appreciation are good things.
Those are key for sure!
He buys me wine 🙂
For some people that is imperative. My mom was a nurse and lived by having a glass of wine at night before she went to bed each night. (Her doctors even recommended it because it helped balance her out. If I could find a wine flavor I liked, I’d probably pick up the habit myself. However, I can’t afford to keep trying wine to only throw it away.)
He helps out around the house, this might sound minuscule but trust me it’s a blessing.
It’s a HUGE blessing. Mine helps out around the house too, and it means a great deal to me.
He is always asking me if there’s anything I need or need help with. He’s so kind and considerate.
That is so sweet. Help around the house does make a world of difference. My husband helps out a lot around the house too.
He just quit smoking. That’s all I need.
That is a wonderful thing for sure. I was so proud of my husband when he quit. He’s been going through so much stress lately that he’s considered started again, but so far he has held off.
This is one f the nicest ideas for a post that I’ve seen in a while!
He supports me 100% with all of my crazy endeavors.
That’s always a blessing. My husband has supported me with everything I’ve ever wanted to do even when he knew I wasn’t cut out for what I was attempting to do.
Gosh, he does so many things that make me happy, but one of the biggest things is that he is aware of my feelings and sensitive to them. He’s also great about helping out around the house.
I’m so glad to hear that your husband does so many things to make you happy. That’s just a blessing to hear. It’s amazing how many women are stating that him helping around the house is a BIGGIE! Yet, so many men still haven’t jumped on that bandwagon. Having a man who pays attention to your feelings is awesome, until you are trying to hide your feelings for whatever reason, then it becomes an issue. 🙂
This is a great post, and we should definitely brag about our spouses every once in a while! My husband is quite literally my other half, helping me in so many ways, I love him so much and am so proud of him <3
I feel that way about my husband. He is definitely my better half. I can’t imagine life without him in it again.
Last night he was amazing! We are dealing with some parenting stuff and he was just being himself. But to me, it was fantastic to know that I have a partner that cares and is involved with what’s going on with the kids.
That makes a HUGE difference. Having a partner with raising your kids makes it so much easier. I know so many women who get stuck with doing everything involved with raising their kids for one reason or another and it’s just HARD. In fact to me it’s harder than if you’re a single parent to some extent.
Brian bought me Resse’s Cups the other day. They are my favorite and were a surprise to find on the counter when I got home from work.
Oh it’s the little things and the big things that make me love my husband more today than the day i married him. From bringing me home a pack of peanut M&Ms for no reason, to making me laugh at his punny jokes, to knowing when my Rheumatoid Arthritis is causing me pain (without my having to tell him), to saying everyday how he appreciates what I do for him and our boys, to being the best, funnest dad our boys could ask for. Thanks for making me cry, I’m already emotional since our anniversary is this weekend 🙂
My husband really is a great man! He is a hard worker, great father, treats me like a queen, and is also my best friend!
I feel blessed with my husband, Mike had taken me on with 4 children that he looks to as his, as time grew and so did our family and we added an additional 6 making a grand total of 10…Mike has been there supported loved guided and cheers me on. He is not only my Husband but my Best Friend, and for this I feel blessed =) <3
There’s nothing like having your husband as your best friend too. It takes your relationship to a whole new level for sure. I’m impressed that you have so many kids and can live to talk about it. 🙂 Just joking, but my three are more than enough for me.
He let’s me have the remote, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!! I know it’s not a big deal but I grew up where my dad ruled the TV and my husband just sits with me and lets me surf the channels. He does a lot of other things but this one sticks out 🙂
I can understand that one being a big deal. I’d love to have my husband watch TV with me in total control. However, I know that day will never come again. We can’t have it all though in one person. To my husband’s credit though, we do pick out shows to watch together that interest us both.
This is so sweet and really shows what a loving relationship you have <3
I took a Love Language class and it really helped my marriage
That would be a fun class to take for sure. I just got to read the book. I’m glad to hear that it really helped your marriage.
My husband is a godly man who takes his role as leader of our home seriously. It blesses me that he calls me everyday as he drives to work so he can pray with me and do a devotion. It always sets our day in the right direction.
That is such a sweet tradition to do together. I’m glad you married such a wonderful godly man. That is truly a huge blessing. Thanks for stopping by and sharing with us this awesome detail about your spouse. I hope you’ll come back.
I am in therapy to deal with some medical and behavioral issues that are occurring with our kid. I said something (not mean, just observational) about my husband and followed up with, “but this isn’t a divorce thing or anything. We are very much in love and working through it.”
My therapist smiled and commented, “that is obvious.”
A good marriage is truly a blessing, especially when the family is facing extra uncontrollable medical struggles like we are.
He is so very kind and always appreciate me for the things I do. Thank you for linking up with us @ #HomeMattersParty. We would love to have you again next week.
I love this! My husband is definitely my other half and possibly, my better half. He sees the beauty in me, even when I can’t see it in myself. Plus, I still get goosebumps when he whispers into my ear! Hehehe
This is lovely and every spouse needs to feel loved and appreciated.
I love that my husband is thoughtful, helpful, and provides for our family so that I can stay home and homeschool the girls.
Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop.
Wishing you a lovely day.
It’s so nice to see all this bragging on husbands! I feel so encouraged after a pretty negative day (not my husband’s fault! 🙂 My guy is a great one too. He puts up with so much from me and the kids and is always looking for ways to serve us! Thanks so much for linking this up at Booknificent Thursday this week!
I love this post! It’s so easy to fall into the trap of bashing our partners instead of lifting them up with praise–so refreshing to see such a positive post!
My other-half has many qualities I could brag about. He is an amazing father and frequently spends special daddy/daughter time with our child so that I can do the things I need to get done guilt-free. He supports my crazy dreams and encourages me to keep going when I feel like giving up. He does little things here and there to show me he cares, like having my favorite album on the turntable when I get home from work or a cold beer waiting for me at the end of a rough day. He understands me completely and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

I am the kind of person who requires too much attention. I often tell my husband he’s not doing enough. I’m not proud of it, but he loves me with my flaws and I have never known a love like that outside of my family. I love him for that and I love him for how much he loves our kids. He’s an amazing father and provider for our family. Thank you for sharing this at #mommymeetupmondays!
