Motivational Mondays – Love in Action

How was your weekend?

Now that Chinese New Year is over, I had a major project waiting for me- get cracking on my study room. And guess who came to help?

This was what I posted on my Facebook yesterday and I think someone just scored himself some major PR points because I received 75 likes for it and counting…

The message that went with it.

This Valentine’s Day, I didn’t receive a single stalk of rose, card or present. Instead hubby is spending the weekends reorganising the study room so that I can have my personal crafting space. This study room of ours have turned into a store room over the years and we call it our junk yard. He knows what he’s in for with his promise and I’m touched… That is his love language with his act of service. #imsolucky #loveworks #love #yeahtomorecrafting

I’m so blessed.

As a married couple, you know you’ve reached a very comfortable stage with each other where you can say that you don’t care for flowers on Valentine’s Day because you get charged exorbitant prices for a bouquet when they don’t last for even a week.

Plus love in action is way more appreciated than just hearing them spoken, just like what Alexis did for me over the weekends. He could have been doing his own stuffs, sleeping, surfing the internet but no, he spent a good day packing, shifting and rearranging the study room so that I can have my own personal space to craft because he knows that I enjoy it.

I giggled as I secretly snapped a photo of him working away.

This warms my heart a thousand times over flowers or present and like what many commented too, this lasts way longer than flowers. Though I did say that a card would be nice too after what I made him for Valentine’s Day 🙂 #justsaying

    Awww so sweet! This act of service speaks volumes about his love for you! =) I always tell the hubby I wish to have my own crafting space someday, haha, but for now, we don’t even have space for junk so that will have to wait for a long, long time. Still, it’s great to have a dream! =) Happy Vday to you two! =)

      Thanks Summer. I was indeed touched by what he did. He may not be romantic at heart but his practicality won me over.

    A craft room?! That is True LOVE, man!

    Shows how supportive he is of your crafting, which is truly hard to come by! 🙂

      So very touched and yes so glad that I got his approval to do more crafting too 🙂

    That is really sweet of him. His love language must be deeds! 🙂 I totally agree, in fact, after so many years of marriage, I have also become way more practical, and same like your hub, my hub also shows his love through his actions, and I have grown to appreciate it. Have linked up a very similar sort of post 🙂

      Thanks for linking up Michelle. Your hubby is so sweet to cook for you and the family too. I believe that love in action speaks volumes as it takes time and effort and not just money on gifts to show their love and appreciation.

    this type of gift wins totally! he’s not just a hands-on dad but a very hands-on husband too! 🙂
