A Couple of Questions XXXIX

Alright, I confess, I had to Google Roman Numerals to make sure I got this one right. I was right, but I would have needed help from here on out anyway as I forgot what 50 was represented by. Oh, the things the Internet helps us navigate through.

We got a phone call from Mikayla's pre-school that the water main had burst - no school for her today. Alright, not too many plans to change which is good. However, I was up until midnight, and then she had me up since 4:30 - so I think I'm going to have her snuggle with me for a nap as soon as I finish this.

Don't worry, I will get to all of JustMe's (Heather's) wonderful question contributions - but these have been discussed much by John and I this week as it has to do with the Bible Study he's involved with. Wanted to see what your responses would be-

Regarding the 5 Love Languages - as outlined by Gary Smalley, (ACTS OF SERVICE, WORDS OF AFFIRMATION, PHYSICAL TOUCH, QUALITY TIME TOGETHER, GIFTS):

1. What is your top love language?

2. Assuming your love language is what is easiest for you also to give to others, what is your LEAST easiest Love Language to extend to others (or your spouse)?

1. Most definitley, ACTS OF SERVICE. Inherited that one from Mom for sure. Oh, the love that flows from my heart for my man when I wake up to a clean house or see him taking charge of the kids to straighten up....

2. Probably, PHYSICAL TOUCH. I'm not all that touchy feely, and John would like to hold hands 24-7. (Or more.... =)

1. I am going to have to agree with Stephie; acts of service is my biggest love language. I love to do things for people; I love to know that I make a person's day by watching their kids, cleaning their house, etc.

2. Once again, I am going to have to agree with Stephie on this one. My least easiest love language is physical touch. I am definitely not a touchy feely kind of person either. Travis loves to hold my hand, cuddle, hug, etc. It is really hard for me to be that way. Like John, Travis would hold my hand 24-7 if he could. That is how Travis wants me to communicate with him, and I know I need to work on that area of 'communication'.

Excellent Questions!

1. Acts of Service
2. Gifts

First of all, don't feel obligated to use all my suggestions. I was just throwing out as much as I could.

1. A tie between Words and Touch. My miniscule self esteem needs lots of feeding.

2. Gifts. Ugh! I hate being the center of attention, I hate receiving when I have nothing to give in return. I only feel comfortable when I am giving far more than I am receiving in terms of Gifts and Service. I'd choose rolling around in the hay with someone whispering their love in my ear over a diamond-anything, anyday.

TMI I know!

Whenever I take surveys or quizzes like this one (i.e. spiritual gifts, some personality profiles) I never really lean one way significantly enough to know. I have never understood why that is, but it's true. Perhaps I'm a neutral person? Who knows. I think, honestly, they are all almost equal to me. I like acts of service, I also want small gifts on occasion, I want him to grab my hand or hug me randomly, tell me I'm doing a great job, and spend quality time with me. None of these is more significant to me than the others. And I also do them all equally to Aaron. Seriously, I'm strange when it comes to this stuff.
