I want to say thank you for everything that you have taught me, and because of it I am proud to say I am my husband’s wife!!!! I started listening to your program when I was 11. I am now 25 and have read almost all of your books. My favorite is The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. My husband and I got married a little over a year ago.
I am a full-time student and recently got a job in the field I am studying. About a week into work, I started feeling like a bad wife because I didn’t have any time during the week for my husband. Then on my first Friday, I came home from a 19 hour day to a hot candle-lit bubble bath that my husband had drawn for me. After giving him a big sloppy kiss and hug, I grabbed your book and settled down for a nice long soak. With my priorities now straightened, I started brainstorming little ways to remind my husband every day how much I loved him and that he above all else was my NUMBER 1!!! So the next week and every week since I have written him little love notes before I leave for school. I have taken lunch times so when he comes to visit me at work we can eat together. And most importantly during the week, I MAKE time for sex. It doesn’t matter if I have to get up in 4 hours, the closeness with my husband is so worth it!
My husband told me last night that one of my coworkers stopped him on his way out the door, told him he was a lucky man and he wished his wife treated him half as good as I treat my husband. My husband smiled and told him “I don’t know what to tell you. I found a gem.” I am so happy and proud to be my husband’s “gem” Thank you for reminding me that to get love, I have to give love. Giving is so much better than getting. That smile on his face is priceless!!!!
Thank you, Dr. Laura, for teaching me how to care and feed my husband!
