Major Malfunction!

If you come upon a post and wonder why there's a weird black box with an exclamation mark in it, you may want to read this post to find out what has gone wrong. Still trying to figure out how to fix it all, without having to do each post manually. Until then, the black boxes remain. I thank you for your understanding. If you know someone that can help me, PLEASE send them my way!

Day 11: Love Cherishes

The Dare:

What need does your spouse have that you could meet today? Can you run an errand? Give a back rub or foot massage? Is there housework you could help with? Choose a gesture that says, "I cherish you" and do it with a smile.

The Questions:

What did you choose to show that you cherish your mate? What did you learn from this experience?

My Thoughts:

Kyle some how hurt his shoulder. It's really bothering him and because we don't have insurance right now he hasn't been able to just jump in the car and go to the doctor. So I've given him a couple back / shoulder massages to help ease the pain a bit.

I don't give him massages often because 1) my arms are a lot weaker than they used to be so I tire more easily than I used to and 2) I'm a brat and think that because it's not going to {usually be} reciprocated that I don't need to.

I need to change my attitude though. He works hard, manual labor and I know that the massages help him to feel better. I know I don't like to be in pain and I know that he is most of the time.

One more thing to work on.


  1. But it sounds like you are working on it - hope he is feeling better soon!

  2. It's good that you can see your own hesitations and why you hold back. I have to admit; your reasons are the same things that hold me back from giving my own husband back massages often. I know I'll be sore afterward and he'll be asleep! ;)

    We love a product called "Peaceful Mountain Tendon Rescue" at our house. (AWESOME herbal rub) It helps a ton whether truly massaged in or not. It's under $15 and may help your hubby!
