Put a huge smile on your husband's face

Tell me, when was the last time you hugged your husband?

Like a real comforting hug, the just-hug-and-ignore-everything kind of hug? One that makes you both feel serene and happy, for literally being in each other's arms? And as you savour the short and sweet moment, you both dance to some sort of a muted music?

Well, I don't do it that much either.

But I have discovered the pleasure in it and ever since, I have been trying to do it a lot more often.

Sometimes I sit down and I wonder whether my focus have been shifted too much on the kids, the home. I forgot that I have another person that deserves the same attention - my husband.

It is not like he is complaining or making a fuss about it, but somehow, I can tell it from the way we live these days.

Day in and day out, we go by with our routines. The kids kept us busy, and so worn-out at the same time. End of the day, we both surrendered to the tiredness. I sometimes watch him sleep, steal some glances on his tired face.

And then I thought - Damn. This parenting sh** is real (excuse my words).

I wish that we could have back more of those days where we enjoy a movie night, or just talk about things other than the kids or the home. Most of all, I do secretly wish that we both could escape to somewhere and leave everything behind. Just be carefree again.

Well we all know that it's not going to happen.

Us moms and wives, we want our husbands to appreciate us more. We want them to show their love, say it out loud, display it affectionately. We love those.

But sometimes we forgot, that they too, would appreciate the same thing. They may not say it out loud, display it, but if we take some time and try to look or listen, chances are they also could be expecting the same thing.

So why not, we start first?

With that, I think I am going to follow suit with this challenge:

A brilliant one, I shall say. Created purely out of the same sentiment that I have. It is all about appreciating the husband, which I find quite fun and a very thoughtful thing to do.

Just click on the picture above and you will be directed to Grace's page where she tells everything in detail.

It is also so simple right? So follow-able. Whatever you call it.

I like it.

So, are you with me? Please tell me that what I wrote inspires at least a few of you. LOL.

If you do, leave a comment so that I know who to find when you post your photos at the #glt20daychallenge hashtag :)

Now go do something nice for your husband!
