♥ ♥ ♥ It’s the day before Valentine’s Day! ♥ ♥ ♥
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and your husband is likely to do a little something for you.
That may or may not be a good thing. :)
Gifts might be silly or awkward or not what you expected. Cards may carry the “wrong” message. You may not get what you want or get to do what you want.
But is that a reflection of lack of love?
Probably not. It’s more likely a lack of understanding or he’s speaking his own language of love … and not yours.
Please receive his gifts graciously, as they come from his heart. His gifts, cards, and flowers are an expression of his love for you and he wants to please you. To disdain his gifts is to disdain his love.
At a later date (and from time to time) talk to him about gifts and what you like. You want to learn his language and teach your language. This will take time, practice, and a fair amount of trial and error.
In the mean time, enjoy the day. Give your man a kiss and do your best to communicate love in a way he will understand.
