How many times have you seen a romantic movie and thought, “I wish my husband was like that…”
Well ladies, it’s time for a reality check! I know this might be hard for you to accept but…
Titanic was not based on a real life story!
In real life, Rose and Jack would have sunk to the bottom of the ocean arguing about which one of them was going to get to float on that door.
Romantic movies but concepts of romanticism into our heads that may never be. I know that I will never come home to a bed full of roses. That is just not my husband and I’m ok with that now. Plus, think of the clean up! Rose petals would stain my white comforter and I would have to spend a fortune on Oxyclean!
However, he does things that not are classified as ‘romantic’ by mainstream thought but should be. For example, he knows that I am not a morning person and I have the hardest time getting out of bed. So this Saturday, he let me sleep in late. That’s his way of being romantic!
We have to celebrate these acts of kindness/appreciation from our husbands/partners!
Imagine that you are watching a romantic movie with Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman (you guys know how much I love Wolverine). They fall in love, get married, have kids… Scene: Kate Winslet wakes up, notices it is past noon. She staggers to the living room to find Jackman playing with their kids.
What goes through your mind at that exact moment?
Exactly! Sure, my husband looks nothing like Hugh Jackman (although he has a resemblance to Wolverine… he’s very hairy) nor I like Kate Winslet, and we only have one baby but that is the scene that played out in my home this Saturday morning.
Now do you see where I am going with this?
So let’s do an exercise…
Think of something kind that your husband did recently (within the last year is still recent in my book) and describe it in the comments section of this post like a scene from a romantic movie!
