During a marriage counseling session, I told my husband I was starting to imagine my life without him. I immediately saw the hurt in his entire being – like I had taken a needle to a balloon and all the air escaped from him. At that moment, I knew he still loved me and wanted to be with me. That was a Monday.
On Tuesday, I downloaded the sample of “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands” because I wasn’t yet a believer. I started highlighting, and then saw your direction to find one or two things to compliment him on (no matter how small) each day for five days. That seemed easy, because it was something I used to do.
On Wednesday, I said “Good morning sweetie!” and before he left for work, I said “You look handsome.” He was cold, but distant. I remained focused! Thursday was similar, but I called him at work to let him know I was thinking of him and looked forward to seeing him when he got home. He had plans with friends, but I waited for him. He was still a bit distant, even putting a pillow over his face when he got into bed. Still, I gently kissed him and whispered “I love you.”
As I lay there with my back to my husband, I wondered how long it would take for him to come back to me. He spooned me and then we made love. During our intimacy, I apologized to him, asked for his forgiveness and vowed to be the woman he fell in love with. It took all of only two days for him to return to me.
I’m wiping tears of joy from my keyboard as I type this. Thank you for writing this amazing book, because it changed our lives for the better. And, by the way, I finally bought and downloaded the FULL version!
