An interesting read
Last night I was having trouble sleeping so I got up and read for a while in the living room. I dug out a book I've been meaning to read for the past 4 years or so, "The Five Love Languages" by Gary Chapman. My aunt and cousins gave this book to Dwayne and I as a wedding present and my aunt made me promise that I would read it. She had just recently gotten divorced from my uncle and felt that if they had read this book early on in their marriage it might have made a difference.

I got almost halfway through the book last night before the baby needed me. I hope to finish the rest of the book this afternoon while the little ones are napping. I am finding it to be interesting and also enlightening. I am hoping my husband will also want to read it.

For those of you who might not have heard of this book here is an excerpt from the back cover:

"People express and receive love in different ways. Dr. Gary Chapman identifies these as the five languages of love:

QUALITY TIME * WORDS OF AFFIRMATION * GIFTS * ACTS OF SERVICE * PHYSICAL TOUCH

If you express love in a way your spouse doesn't understand, he or she won't realize you've expressed your love at all. The problem is that you're speaking two different languages.

Perhaps your husband needs to hear encouraging words, but you feel cooking a nice dinner will cheer him up. When he still feels down, you're puzzled. Or, maybe your wife craves time with you - time away from the kids and the television. The flowers you gave her just don't communicate that you care.

In this new edition of The Five Love Languages, you will find a couple's guide to help you work as a team. Before you know it, you';l learn to speak and understand the unique languages of love and effectively express your love as well as feel truly loved in return."
