Ok, all you Fab 40 women out there. I thought I would ask you what sweet, thoughtful thing has your man done for you this past week? Something as thoughtful as a compliment, helping around the house, playing with the children. Date night? Do Share!!!!

I have been up for a couple of hours this morning and thanking God for my husband, Don. I got it right the 2nd time around.

My answer to this question... Don took me to a movie last night... The new Richard Gere/Diane Lane movie. IT is a tear jerker. I really need to invest in water proof mascara. Dinner... Then at home... We shared wine, candlelight flickering in the bedroom and he gave me a massage for about an hour...all while a Jim Brickman CD was playing in the background. So romantic and such a beautiful setting. I floated off to sleep.

13 years and still going. I truly love this man.

Would love to hear about other thoughtful men out there. They are still around...

    • I have a very thoughtful, romantic husband and he is 10 years younger than me.  I always say he is a throw back, a real gentleman.   For my 40th birthday this year, he surprised me with a night at a beautiful hotel, The Liberty Hotel, in Boston.  When we go there, there was Champagne, flowers and chocolate in the room.  He had arranged for a masseuse to come to the room and give me a massage.  Then he took me out to my favorite restaurant that night, and we had a nice walk through the park back to our hotel.   He also had them include breakfast in the morning.  He does these kind of things all the time, and what is interesting, is every guy he hangs out with is part of that nice guy coalition.

    • Hey Darla5,

      Your Hubs sounds like a true sweetheart. I just love that you have posed this, with so much negativity always being said about messed up relationships all over tv and internet it is great to see others sucessful and romantic love stories. My husband is so supportive and he told me last night he was worried about me being depressed. I have recently stopped being a full time mom and the adjustemnt is really taking a toll. He assured me how much he loves,that he loves no other,and will do whatever it takes to get me through this. I know it is not as romantic but it was truly what I needed from him. His reassurance of his love and that I am still the most beautiful woman in the world to him and he is not looking for anyone else,and that he is excited about it being just me and him again is something my heart needed. Plus the support he has for me is just hugh. Doug is my beat friend,lover, and my only love!

      Sincerely,
      Bella

    • First of all, I love Jim Brickman! His music would put anyone in a romantic state of mind.

      And, now for my contribution. The other day my husband, Joe, told me he was very proud of me for the way I’ve started rebuilding my chocolate business.

    • I am one of those women that kissed alot of frogs before I finally found my Prince.  I liked the bad boys and it seemed like they were attracted to me.  I think I had a sign on my forehead that only they could see that said “abuse me“.  I think that the “frogs” helped me to realize that I am worth more than how I was being treated and it also helped me to appreciate my Matt more.  Matt is one of the most caring and loving people I have ever met.  He is a Massage Therapist so he helps me with the pain issues by doing massage.  He plays guitar and sings to me and also wrote a song for me. I think that the song was the most special thing that has ever been given to me other than my children.  Matt is constanly researching to help with my health issues and is my protector.  I always feel safe in his presence.  He is my Blessing from God.  :)

    • I am thrilled for each one of you ladies...Yes, there are jerks out there and we find articles and blogs about it all the time. What is that saying... Bad news travels faster... I thought it would be great when our guys do something kind we should give the same air time IF not more.

      So here is to you MickeyD - 10 years younger. YOU GO GIRL!!!! Such a romantic story. Love that his guy friends are like that too. Keep the romance stories coming...

      Bella- You could not ask for more encouraging words... You hang in there... Think of it like this. You are still so young as an empty nester. You can hang from the chandlier and not have to worry about someone walking in...haha

      Chocolatier- I am so happy that your husband is supporting you on starting back up again. It is amazing what their support means to us. It gives us that extra push that we need sometimes. Hey, I wrote to you on the blogs about shoe/purse addiction... I  think I have everyone of his cd’s. Have you ever seen Jim Brickman in person. He is worth every penny....

      Debra- A massage therapist that writes and sings song. Now who has the story.... Wow...how lucky are you. I kissed alot of toads also. Married one the first time... More like the ANTICHRIST.... but that is another story. I am so happy that you feel safe with Matt.

      If I had a glass in my hand I would toast all of you... Wine in that glass and some of Chocolatier’s creations for a bonus...Take Care.... Look forward to hearing more from all of you.

    • Well, it may not sound like much to you...but...I had to make a presentation for our ministry at a church yesterday morning and conduct a volunteer meeting in the afternoon. I was totally drained! My hubby really didn’t do much all day, after all it was his day off. But when I got home he asked what I had planned for dinner, to which, of course, I replied “nothing“. After a few minutes of trying to get him to tell me what he wanted, he said “No, you stay here and rest. I’ll make something.” He came back with scrambled eggs and ham for the two of us, toast with no butter for me (just how I like it). I hardly moved all evening! It was exactly what I needed!

      Today is his birthday and he’s taking me to Red Lobster! I mean we are going to celebrate at Red Lobster. ;o)

    • As a starry eyed teenager I used to dream of a knight in shining armour. God knew I needed a rock instead. My husband is wonderful, but very practical. A romantic he is NOT. One year I got a gun for my birthday, another year a chain saw... really! It took me many years to learn to love this about him, but it is who he is (and was when I married him). It makes the times he does do something just for me much more special. LOL
      I have a wonderful husband who knows when I need my space, and he is always so supportive, even if it is silently.
      Last weekend when I had to tell him that I bought three horses instead of one, he wasn’t mad... and he smashed his thumb and whacked his forehead building stalls to accommodate them. He doesn’t even like horses! As we peered over the stalls at them he asked me, “this is it, right?” That was as close to telling me I was a little impulsive as he got. Yesterday I was sitting in the pasture with them reading a book. The time came to make supper and instead of asking me when was supper going to be ready, he started cooking the macaroni to go with the turkey in the oven. I came in and rescued him, but I thought it was so sweet of him to just step in and start cooking. (You have to know how bad he hates cooking to fully appreciate that.)
      The only romantic thing he does is send roses every anniversary. Several years ago I complained that he never sent me flowers whereas when we dated he sent them all the time. Now I get 1 red rose for every year we have been married - this year I got 22. I am not sure he realized the precedent he set, but I sure enjoy them while they last. :)

    • Darla5,

      Thanks for the encouragment, If anyone has suggestions on how to bust through this funk I would really appreciate ate it.
      Plus, I love the ideal of posting great romantic moments and wonderful how great guys do!
      My hubby is very romantic, just a month ago he put the cutest bear all decked out in beach wear,and a very loving card just to cheer me up inside the steering wheel of my car so I would find it the next morning.
      Doug really is awsome!

      Sincerely,
      Bella

    • I consider my situation to be a bit unusual in that my husband and I work together as well as live together.

      We’ve heard from most people that there’s no way in hell they could spend all day and all night with their spouse. Oddly, this is the happiest we’ve ever been—and we were mighty happy before!

      Not a day goes by that Scott doesn’t tell me I’m beautiful, or brilliant, or both! He’s dieting with me to try and keep me motivated, and scratches my back every night before bed. ;)

      And, although many might not consider it romantic at all, he just bought me a brand new laptop.  He is so supportive of my ambitions in regards to writing, and constantly amazing me with the little things he says to keep me encouraged and motivated.

      What a great idea, this post. Thanks so much for allowing me to toot his horn, so to speak. :)
