Motivation Monday: Understanding Love

Pretty pictures and lovely words can say a lot. 
I know most weeks my motivation mondays come with lovely pictures- many times of gorgeous vacation spots. 
This week, you get my living room- and a little lesson I'm working on learning.

This is my absolutely amazing boyfriend. He's staining my living room floors. 
My living room is huge- like, unreasonably large.
He helped, because he's that guy. 

Well, sometimes I'm a little hard on the guy. He's absolutely amazing, but I'm a perfectionist. 
Sometimes I forget that he's not me, he can't read my mind, and he really is doing the best he can. 
Last night, he asked me to come to his apartment. His friends were over and they were watching a movie. I didn't like they way he asked me. (in my defense, I was exhausted, and it wasn't very nice, but he didn't intend it to be). We argued and he went home. After he left I got to thinking. How many guys invite their girlfriends to boys night? How many would work on their girlfriends house?

He may not say or do all the right things, but he tries. He loves me, and while I may prefer he says it through dinner instead of sandpaper or flowers instead of floor stain. He says it in everything he does. 

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want, doesn't mean they don't love you with everything they have.

How do you say "I love you" to those in your life? 
Challenge: Have your actions tell the people in your life you love and appreciate them today.
