One Incredible Birthday Gift

Expect love. It's beautiful and surprising and nothing like you thought it would be.

No one's going to put in this sort of effort for a guy who has been whining he expected his wife would serve dinner on time (or pick up his dry cleaning or stop working when the baby came) if she really loved him...

Your spouse wants to love you. It's a lot harder when you want to dictate how.


Thanks for sharing, Patty! Yep, he might just be a moppin' that floor once in a while;)

Hoping you are well!

Wow! What a great idea. My beautiful wife is turning 40 in January. I am inspired!

Patty, not to sound like a broken record but your site has turned me into a new man!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Thank you so much, Reborn! I am catching up on comments tonight. I apologize for the delay in publishing yours. Please let us know what you do for your wife's birthday.
