An expression of Love

Have you ever read the book, The 5 Love Languages? If not, read it! You will learn so much about yourself. The 5 languages are Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, & Physical Touch. It's been quite a while since I've taken the quiz, but Acts of Service is at the top of my list.

After a long day at work getting ready for Valentine's Day flowers to come in, I ran a much needed errand with our daycare director tonight. It was a get home at 4:55, help E turn right around & go back out the door at 5, put together a flower arrangement, hubby in the door at 5:15, I leave to meet with the daycare director. Fast forward to 7pm I finally come in the door. 

Know what I found when I got home? Supper was ready & waiting for me!!! I about melted! It was so nice to come home & be able to sit down & relax while eating dinner. Yes, there are still things to be done. But, for  now, I am so incredibly lucky to have a family that loves me. And the rest will wait while I spend some time with them tonight.

What are some ways that make you melt?


  1. I've read that book, it's fantastic. I would say I'm definitely a Quality Time person, which is really difficult right now. Still, we manage.

    So sweet of your hubby to have dinner all done for you. You have a great guy!

    1. Quality Time is definitely a hard one to fit in sometimes!!

  2. What makes me melt: My beautiful wife's smile. Not just a regular. A smile that lights up her face and you can see in her beautiful green eyes. I love you my dear!!
    The smile of children. My little childs hand in mind. I other word my Wife and my family make me melt.

  3. I had an entire semester in College dedicated to the 5 love languages. It was really interesting. My language seems to change. Most often it's acts of kindness, and other times it's quality time. When Ken does the laundry or wakes up with the kids so I can sleep in a bit...that really makes me melt!
