This time my dream took place in my old house (the house I lived in until about 10 years old). Me and my friend had made promise to meet in this house. When my friend arrived, she’s trying to phone her husband. My friend told me that her and her husband often phoned each other when they weren’t together.
Then she asked how about I communicate with my husband. I told her that me and my husband used chatting app more because both of us were busy working. So, it’s easier for us to communicate using messages than phone calls.
If we had free time, we would spare some time to check our messages and reply to them. When we weren’t together, we would chat each other. We always had something to talk about, our messages in one day was very long (more than two meters). Hahaha. This answer was the end of my dream today.
In the past, when I still taught at kindergarten, I left home earlier than my husband because my working time started earlier. My husband would send message asking me if I had arrived. He wanted to make sure that I had arrived safely. If I didn’t reply to him, he would ask my teaching partner.
Because I didn’t reply to his messages for several times, to tell him that I had arrived, he initiated to activate location sharing feature on my smartphone, so when I went to someplace and didn’t inform him, he could check his smartphone to make sure I had arrived.
Was I troubled by what my husband had done? Not at all. Instead I was happy to be cared for like that. It meant he cared for me very much. Other people might feel uncomfortable, but I enjoyed it. What my husband did was a language of love that I needed. With him like that, I felt loved.
About language of love, we got this knowledge from a book we read, the title is The Five Language of Love, written by Gary Chapman. Because we felt that the book’s contents were very good for couples, I had bought this book as present several times to my friends on their marriage days. My hope was, by giving them this book, they and their husbands could learn to understand each other’s language of love. Just like me and my husband.
The languages of love that I need most are words and time together. My husband who know about this, know what he must do to me. Simply by telling me constructive words and staying with me, they are more than enough to make me feel loved. How about my husband’s language of love? How can he feel loved by me? Only me may know. 😊
The book I mentioned above is very recommended for married couples or those who are about to get married. It’s really good and helpful to marriage life if the contents were not only read, but also applied in real life.
