"Know what I like about you?"
So...it was about a year ago..and one day for some reason I said that sentence to my husband. He stopped what he was doing and looked at me and I said, "You always smell so good." Because I love the smell of his cologne. I do. And he smiled. He was surprised. And he said something back to me. And it started a simple habit between us - something new after all these years. We will, from time to time say, "Know what I like about you....?" and we fill in the blank.
So.. I wrote an article about about how we do that.. and... lo and behold.. it was reprinted lots of other places. Three newspaper columnists in three U.S. cities wrote a column about my article.. Who knew??
AND.. I got a mazillion positive emails about it from a mazillion readers... Maybe two mazillion.
Try it. It will make a HUGE difference in your heart and his. Life is hard for husbands, too. Right now, after you read this.. try it. Turn to him and say, "Know what I like about you?" and then tell him something real and truthful. (If he isn't home, pick up the phone and call him.)
