On the evening news the weather man said, "make sure you take your umbrella as you go out this week."
An instant flash back sprang to my mind from a Love Seminar from years and years ago. Expressing love is not always verbal. With some it will be a simple reminder to carry your umbrella when you go out.
Earlier I had recalled the message on the machine the night before reminding my husband of his dentist appointment that afternoon and although I knew he had heard the message I stopped what I was doing to call him and remind him one more time.
His response was not what I expected from him. In the sweetest voice he could muster he said, "Aw-w, you really do care. I love you."
Silly me, I did not even know that he would interpret that as a message of love. What a valuable bit of information I learned today.
According to Gary Chapman in the book "Five Love Languages" there are five ways to express love: words, action, service, touch and gift giving.
Anyone read the book? I think it might be interesting.
Take your umbrella tomorrow!
