Loving Again

I've been thinking about love again.

How much effort I put into loving and then realize it's the wrong language. How easy it is to love in our own language, but often ineffective. Wondering if it's possible for two people to speak two languages at the same time, multi-tasking.

Imagine a "Words of Affirmation Wife" rubbing the shoulders of her "Physical Touch Husband" while he tells her five specific things that she does exceptionally well.

Another thought: perhaps we need a variety of people showing us love in our language. Example -- I might be doing a great job of filling my son's love cup, but he really needs love needs met by a friend or other adult. Can it be??

Maybe mom isn't always enough.
