Toothpaste Love

Toothpaste love | www.EvermooreFilms.com

Yes. Love your husband by rolling the toothpaste HIS way. Instead of constantly fighting his quirky personality, embrace it, love it, and learn to cherish it. Someday you may regret not doing this sooner. Find the small ways you can bless him by letting him be him and not trying to make him you or someone else. In just a simple task like rolling the toothpaste, or installing the new roll of toilet paper, or folding his shirts…let him do it his way and–ready for this?–try it his way yourself! No, it might not be your favorite way, or the perfect way. In fact, YES, it might be less efficient, less pretty, or just uncomfortable. But don’t you think just another little way to say “I Love You” would go a million miles with your husband? Well…it does…especially when you add all those little ways up – they become big ways and more miles really fast.

Not sure what your husband prefers or just so used to doing it your own way? Ask him! “Hey, honey, I never stopped to ask, but…how would YOU prefer me to ____fill-in-the-blank____.” After he lifts his jaw off the ground and gives you a big hug…I’m sure he’ll have a few ideas for you. Just take one at a time – you don’t want to completely change yourself into him, but you do want to honor his wishes and not be a selfish monster for the rest of your married life, right? So start today by noticing (or asking) how he rolls the toothpaste tube. Have separate toothpastes? Then try the toilet paper test. Start with one simple thing that he does one way and you do another and try it his way. And maybe later he can try something else your way…but hold your horses and take it one step at a time! Happy rolling!

His Favorite Meal

A sweet way to love your husband this week: by cooking his favorite meal after a hard week at work | www.EvermooreFilms.com

 

Remember how your wedding coordinator said over and over “It’s all about the details – it’s the little things that count!” Well, there is definitely some truth to that, and right here, with loving your husband, we can definitely apply those words of wisdom! Remember the little things, because sometimes the little things can actually be the big things! Like a meal. If you don’t know your husband’s faaaaavorite meal (or if it’s really that impossible to cook) then ask him for some yummy ideas. Oh, or here’s a good one: create a pinterest board JUST FOR HIM of ideas of meals he likes (not of ones you THINK he should like) but only the things that he really does like. Then, hand over the computer and say something like this, “So, honey, I’ve been thinking. And I would LOVE to keep track of which meals I cook (or should start cooking) are you favorites so that I know how to surprise you in a way that you love when I have time.” And then hand him the computer and say, “So I would love if you could tell me or type in ideas of your favorite meals, browse around, and save the recipes you’d like me to try or that you know you love and then I can have them all ready to go!”

So give it a try! Plan a night this week or next or soon or just be spontaneous when you know he’s going to have a hard week or just had a hard week or day at work and prepare in an extra special way his very favorite (or one of his favorite) foods or meals. Sure, perhaps the next date he could choose where you eat, but you cooking him the meal will make it even more special. Nothing fancy required unless you have time to throw a fresh tablecloth on, light a candle or two, and add some dinner music to the mix, but either way–casual or forma–we’re SURE he’ll appreciate you just thinking about him. Best wishes to a happy husband – let’s see if you can’t out-love his love for you today!

Clear Your Schedule

Clear your Saturday schedule for your hubby, why, 'cuase you love him and want to spend time with him! | Love Your Husband Bride Tip #23 | www.EvermoorFilms.com

 

Loving your husband means spending time with him. If you never spend time with him, never want to spend time with him, then I would seriously doubt how much you really do love him. So this week, or picking a week coming up, choose a day, perhaps Saturday, to just clear your schedule and spend time with him. Set all your other worries and cares aside and “be” with him, “live” with him, and be excited about his world. That could mean skipping town for the day or it could mean helping him with work or a project that he really wants to do or needs to do and wouldn’t mind you being around for.

If it’s something you can’t directly help with, you can at least be there in the room with him and either chat or do something else productive while he’s working on his own thing. But the point is, “be” and “live” together for a day. If an entire day isn’t reasonable in your schedule right now, make it half a day or a solid chunk of a few hours. But get in his world, participate in his hobbies, or help him wash the car! Perhaps he might come around the kitchen and help with the dishes more or perhaps not, but show him you love him and clear a time to spend specifically with him. If you’ve already got kids include them too or get a babysitter, but make your husband a priority so that your love will not just continue but grow deeper every day!

Forgive Quickly

Love Your Husband by forgiving him quickly | www.EvermooreFilms.com

 

Forgiveness. We all need it. No one is perfect. To forgive is to love. To love is to forgive. Your husband WILL make you mad, frustrated, angry, exasperated, overwhelmed, and/or sad at LEAST once in your entire marriage (I know, hard to believe for you newlyweds 😉 ). So when he does, forgive him. Forgive him quickly. Don’t let it hang second after second, minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day. Skip the misery for you BOTH and just let it go. Forgive the offense.

That’s the easy part. Now here’s the hard part. Recently, I was struck by an incredible thought. When you forgive, forgive quickly and forget it COMPLETELY. Now, I’ve heard of forgiveness, I’ve heard of quickly, AND I’ve heard of completely. But as often as I’ve heard that, known that, and THOUGHT I was doing that, I was recently struck that there’s an important element to not forget in all this. It’s easiest understood through an illustration. Let me share.

One morning, there was a man who planted some flowers in his yard. The flowers were on the edge of his property, right next to his neighbor’s driveway. He walked away and was gardening another part of his yard when out came his neighbor. His neighbor hopped in his car, backed-up to leave and ran over this man’s newly planted flowers! The man goes to his neighbor and says, “Hey! Did you see what you just did? You ran over my flowers!” The neighbor replies, “Oh, wow! I’m so sorry! I didn’t mean to. Will you forgive me?” Forgiveness says “Forgive. Quickly.” The man says, “Okay, sure. But please be more careful next time.” The neighbor replies, “I will!” and drives off. That’s where it usually stops, but suppose later that morning the neighbor came back and ran over this man’s flowers AGAIN! Now if the man says, “Hey! Did you see what you just did to my flowers AGAIN! You ran over them like you already did this morning!” then what do you suppose is truly in his heart. He never actually forgave his neighbor because he held onto his bitterness and refused to forget what had been done to him in the past! Forgiveness says, “Forgive. Quickly.” But true forgiveness says, “Forgive. Quickly. Always. And then forget it and never ever ever remember it again EVEN if it happens again!” So what should the man say to his neighbor? “Okay, sure. But please be more careful next time” without bringing up the past. And what happens if the neighbor runs over his flowers again…and again…and again? What would forgiveness say to do? “Forgive. Quickly. Always. Forget.”

Foot Massage

Love Your Husband #21 | #EvermooreBride | www.EvermooreFilms.com

 

Sometimes it’s good to just take a breather and sit down together. When I was young I watched my parents have “couch time” on the couch together after dinner sometimes. Not every single day ritually but as often as they could. They would sit and chat and focus only on each other – kinda like a mini date but at home. As kids we weren’t allowed to bother them or ask questions or interrupt them (unless it was a REAL emergency) so that they could have some sane adult conversations in a house with six kids!

So how could you be a blessing to your husband this week? Suggest some couch time – 5 or 10 minutes will go a really long way! Offer an incentive to have him sit down by giving him a foot massage. You could agree to trade off or just give him one without expecting anything in return. The main thing is to show him that you love him by your actions not just your words. By sitting down on the couch you’re saying that he is important to you and that you want to talk and relax together like back when you were dating. By giving him a massage you’re showing that you care about him and want him to feel comfortable at home and able to relax from a hard day at work.

So give it a try! Plan a night to surprise your hubby this week with a foot massage and show him you love him without expecting anything in return. But hey, if he wants to offer you a foot massage too–then there you go! 😉

I Wish You Knew

Love Your Husband #20 | Bride Tip Series | www.evermoorefilms.com

Sometimes there are days when we wish our husbands could read our minds. We wish they could just understand. We clash, we’re frustrated, and we don’t know how to get out of the rut. What if your husband could read your mind? What if you could say the exactly perfect thing at the exactly perfect moment? What would he find out? What would you say?

Honestly, what’s stopping you from telling him? What if you could just stop and tell him something you wish he knew about you? Something that would solve a lot of problems. Something that would cure the frustration. Something that helps you both understand each other more and become more sympathetic towards each other. Maybe you need to tell him that it really bugs when he does A-B-C and that if he could just be more aware of it and work on doing D-E-F instead then that would help a lot. Or maybe you need to tell him that you really appreciate when he does G-H-I and you would love it if he continued doing that like he already does. Or maybe when J-K-L happens (like it does often), then you just need a little M-N-O and that will fix everything.

By giving him these ideas of how to better understand you, you are loving him and not trying to play “Crack The Wife Code” with him. Make it easy by just telling him what you’re thinking so he can understand you and the two of you can work together better. Better yet, write it down in a non-threatening way. About a year or two ago I heard some wonderful advice. Buy a blank notebook and title it “All The Things [My Husband] Needs To Know About [Me].” Then start a list of random things that you think would be helpful to tell your husband or that you think would be helpful for him to know about you.

You don’t have to finish it in one sitting, but you can keep adding to it over time. In fact, our ideas, our preferences, and likes change over time so it’s not even possible to write down everything! You may only get to 20 or you may get to 200 real easy, but get started and just write. Then present him with the notebook as a gift, a key to your heart. You’ll be loving him by inviting him into your life and revealing to him your secrets and as he reads and understands you better he will be able to love you better. So it’s a win-win!
