Thinkin about love...

Ah the new year...January never really feels like the new year has TRULY begun...people still on holiday, sun shining, beaches full...really, February should be the start of the new year! Especially wants to come back from summer holidays and knuckle down into the reality of everyday humdrum life! ...well, not humdrum exactly...but you know what I mean. Personally I feel totally in limbo with my honey STILL not home..nearly a month late on his return date (been 10 long weeks now since we saw each other) MY new year hasn't begun! It'll begin when he gets home and all is right with my world again! lol... In the meantime...

I'm really enjoying meeting all my new 'friends' in bloggieland :) My giveaway has found some wonderful fans and I'm very humbled by everyone's lovely comments about my creations. I too love to be part of a world of encouraging, uplifting girls...isn't that what life is about? Lifting each other up..loving each other, as God loves us. And we get to do it with WORDS!! YAYAYAY!! many is it that we girls need to get thru in a day...?...25,000? OH NO WONDER I MISS MY MAN!! haha..lucky he's a goooood listener! ;) Thinking about what makes us tick as a couple...

Have you heard of this book? The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman? I think it's great...quite insightful. You can read about it here and you can even do the quiz online and learn a little about a wife or mother :) (yes there's one for teenagers, and parents of teenagers!!) You tend to have one 'primary' love language with the other four featuring in varying amounts of importance...Pretty sure Words (of affirmation) are maybe my main one (or maybe I just like talking..and enjoying conversation!!)..but then..a bit of all of them are me...acts of service, physical touch, gift giving/receiving..quality time. hmm..I'm not sure I can pick my 'major'!

Anyways...if you've done it, let me know what you think. Some of the questions in the online quiz were hard to answer (all multi choice) cos neither of the two options related to us! So I had to pick the one that WOULD mean the most if my hubby did those things!! haha..wonder if that makes a difference to the end result?

Anyways...time to do a little bloghopping before bed! ;)
ciao bellas
luv jessie x


  1. I love this book but I had no idea they had a website and quiz. i just went and took it and now I can't wait for my husband and children to take it! Thanks for the link!

  2. Hey Jess, I love this book too, read it about 8 or 9 years ago, preached on it, reread it. Just took the quiz and I have to say I think the quiz could be inaccurate as it's so subjective. Lots of the options I would choose neither and some are equal. I know my top LL is Quality time, and perhaps Acts of Service second but A of S came it high first and 3 others pretty even. It is hard to know the answer if your hubby doesn't do those things. And if your 'love tank' has never been filled it will take some time of trying some things to really know what your primary LL is. It is very insightful tho and when you know the LL of family members you can relate so much better to them and understand their moods and reactions so much better. Good on you for bringing this to the blogworld attention.
