What I've Always Wanted

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; 
remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for....
Pre-prgnancy - look how tan I was!
One of my friends posted this on facebook recently and it really resonated with me. I've been really hard on B lately wishing he was more affectionate. I feel loved when I get affection but I need to remember that he has done a lot for me over the last two years and he shows his love in his own way. Do I wish he was more affectionate? Absolutely. But he is so kind, and caring, and funny, and cute, and compassionate, and patient, and is so much of what I've always wanted in a guy that I need to back off and not be as hard as him as I am on myself.

  1. awww I totally understand how you feel! I was the same way with my hubby. I have learned over the years not to pester him about it and he has improved a little, LOL

  2. Yep, I had to do the same thing. I think it is something about being preggers. But, they show "love" different. i.e. Re-doing entire house for new family. Taking out the trash. Putting the toilet seat down....yeah! I know. p.s. The young Michael chirts are back up on Sandbox Threads. ;-)

  3. I couldn't agree with this more!! Funny how we take the little things that we do get for granted. Now, let's just make sure I remember this! ;-)
