The Best Way to Say I Love You
The ten day count-down to our 25th wedding anniversary begins today. My wife has no clue what we're doing. It's a secret. Her probing questions go unanswered. I believe there's no better way to tell her I love her than action. Actions are what back up the words. I know her love language well. For my wife, it's all about acts of service. That's why our anniversary celebration is a great way for me to show her how much I love her. Every detail in the planning is an act of service she will appreciate.
I celebrated my birthday yesterday with my wife and our youngest son at Adventureland. It's Iowa's version of Disneyland, the happiest place on earth. My wife took my hand and we strolled through the park for hours. That's my love language – physical touch. It's the best way for her to say I love you.
Our son felt some love yesterday, too. His love language is quality time. Every time he saw us sitting in the bleachers for his football games and his wrestling matches we were silently telling him, "I love you."
There are two other love languages your loved ones may prefer you to use – words of affirmation and receiving gifts.
