Love Notes Left for My Hubby


--by sonshine, posted Mar 27, 2007

There were a few days I realized my dear hubby was feeling stressed from work, tired, and just feeling a little out of sorts.

Thinking of what to do to lift his spirts .... I got out some colored paper, cut it in several pieces until I had about 6 to 8 total. On each of the papers I wrote several little "I love you notes" and signed my name to them and placed them all over the house in places he would find. For example,  when he lifted the lid to his laptop, he found one there. I also placed one in his undie/sock drawer; on his nightstand; in the jar he keeps his pocket change; where he sits in the living room; on his pillow, along with other places he would eventually look.

The first time he found one he said, "What's this?" and read it and with a big smile on his face, responded, "I love you too!"

For several days he continued to find more notes until he finally found the last one. He really enjoyed what I did and it really blessed and changed his spirit, lifting him up!

Kindness starts from home, if we can learn to be kind to our family members we can easily be kind to others around.
