When you first start dating someone, different things might float your boat or make you tingle (so to speak). You might like the way he looks, because of course we want a fine man! You might like the way he smells or even kissing your neck (or that spot) could send you to the moon. When you are dating, him just walking in the room with his swagger (<– is this still a trendy word?), makes you look into your future and see wedding bells. turn me on
Ooooh how things change after you say, “I do!”
I have been married for 11 years, and with so many ups and downs of marriage, sometimes he can walk into the room and I don’t even notice. And yes, my husband is still very attractive and wears nice cologne, but if we can’t pay a bill, the last thing I am thinking about is his face! Over these 11 years of marriage, 3 kids and growing as woman, certain things about my husband give me the “turn up” feeling inside. What I love is, my husband doesn’t even know, because he doesn’t do these things on purpose. These are qualities that he already has and when he shows me these things, it could be on at any time! Well, not anytime …. we have 3 kids!! Hmph!
Ummmmm, I know I said Worship, Sacrifice and more - but washing dishes makes my liver quiver!! In my house, my husband washes clothes and I am responsible for the kitchen. The thing is, I HATE doing dishes! I hated it when I was younger, and that's why I quickly left home at 17! I still hate it, but we have to eat on clean dishes. Sometimes, my husband will wash dishes for me so I can finish a work assignment or just because he may see I am just plain tired. I will sit at the kitchen table with my hands in my palms starring at him in awwwww. He smiles, because he already knows, "It's going dooouunn!"
I have learned that over the years, what turned me on at 22 doesn't turn me on in my 30's. Who knows what will turn me on in my 40's. Either way, what you experience in marriage allows you to truly see yourself, especially when you go through things that show how strong you are. In those times, a cute face just won't cut it. I am grateful to be on this journey & experience personal growth.
Who knew my husband washing dishes could really make me tingle? What does your husband do that turns you on?
