Affirming. My husband really craves affirmation. The more I affirm, the more confident and good he feels about himself.

Thank you!
That looks a great site! I just spent some time perusing, and I found it interesting to read.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

I recently stumbled upon a blog that has really rocked my world: http://peacefulwife.com/ I have been reading the posts, pondering them, and really working at being more respectful to my husband. That's what I am doing!

Thanks! I need all the positive thoughts/vibes I can get. He will get to come home for a little bit (like a month) in the middle. So, it will be broken up.

But, I am still struggling with the whole thing.

This week I am working at listening to my husband more. He is working very hard so I am trying to make sure he has everything he needs at hand so he doesn't get too frustrated searching for items!

My husband cleaned off my car this morning, warmed it up and shoveled before he went to work. It was such a special way of knowing that he cared. So tomorrow he is getting his very favorite dinner.

I am going to take some tips from another post, and make sure I am being respectful and emotionally-present for my husband this week.

As everyone says, a marriage takes lots of work. What are you doing to work on your marriage this week?

I know that I am studying my husband this week. He is not a communicator, nor does he open up and share. So I do believe I can understand him better by observing & studying him.
I even bought a special notebook.
