Yesterday I found this online quiz from the book the 5 Love Languages. I thought it would be interesting to see what it said for me. So I took a few minutes to fill it out, and low and behold, my main love languages are words of affirmation, acts of service, and quality time.
I think I sort of knew this already. I start to feel 'starved' if that makes sense, when I'm stuck at home for too long, and I feel neglected when I don't get to spend time with Keith or other family and friends. I noticed this about myself very much lately. If I haven't spent time with a friend for a while, I start to wonder if they even like me, or care about me.
So, it got me thinking. Last night as I lay in bed, trying to fall asleep, I thought about my kids. If I receive love through quality time, that means that I give love that way as well. And you know what, I haven't been loving my kids the way I should.
So this morning we spent lots of time reading books, playing play dough, and just being together. It made me happier, and I hope they enjoyed it too :)
