Love Pays Dividends

Posted on Posted in Embracing Life

Love pays dividends big time when you are a giver. This weekend was uber busy for me! I took a 2 day road trip round trip that was exhausting but rewarding.

When I got home, hubby was handling Sunday dinner and getting our teens ready for school the next day. While I was in the shower, he ran out to get me these vibrant orange roses. He said he got them “JUST BECAUSE”. He said that I am always giving to others and he wanted to just give me something he knew I love: flowers.

Tuesday, he was stuck in traffic for over an hour and only drove about 15 miles from home. He turned around, went home  and decided to take the day off. He called me a few minutes before my lunch break to say he was coming by with lunch-for me. You know the best thing about this, he got my order right without asking what I wanted. LOL!!

To top it all off, he calls me and asks me to come straight home without making any stops. This dude grabs my keys when I walk in the door and heads to get new tires put on my car. I’ve been needing tires for a few months but our schedule never permitted for me to have them replaced.

New tires baby!!!
New tires baby!!!

You may be wondering why I titled this post, Love Pays Dividends. Well, I used to be an extremely selfish wife who complained unmercifully. Once I changed my ways, made deposits of love and respected my husband, he began to reciprocate. So, love does indeed pay dividends and I’m thankful we are both getting a return on our investments.

How do you and your husband make deposits of love into each other?

  1. Awwww, what a blessing it is! It’s always about sowing seeds of love and you will in return reap the awesome benefits of love. It’s wonderful to finally get to a place with your significant other that you are on the same page in life. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I think it’s so important to know your spouses love language and act on it. We’ve been married 13 years and are on auto pilot now, but that has to change. We had a great discussion that started out heated and ended in laughter. It’s good to talk things out, but rest assure I will be dusting off my Love Languages book this weekend and implementing some of it. After a nap….

  3. These are awesome dividends! I love that he is such a sweet caring guy. I always show gratitude when the hubby gives me dividends 🙂 . He is so sweet bringing lunch and those flowers 🙂

  4. Sounds like a great hubby. Those are the best gifts when there is no reason why you are receiving them. I love flowers and those are pretty. Isn’t that good, when they can actually remember what you like to eat..lol

  5. This warms my heart. I love the big things, but they are obvious things most of the time. It is the little I thought of you things that I adore the most. This week it was a net for my trunk so things would stop sliding all over the place.

  6. Wow! That is awrsome. I love surprises and it seems like your husband has been giving you quite a few lately.

  7. This is such a blessing and made my stomach flutter. I’m nowhere near a relationship but this is proof of what marriage should look like. Thank you for sharing.
