My husband almost made me cry the other night — tears of joy, that is. After wearing the same pair of jeans far too often because none of the rest in my closet fit right or look that great, I finally broke down and went shopping for new ones. I’d honestly rather have a root canal or Chinese water torture than shop for blue jeans or bathing suits. Some of you can feel my pain, I know.
After trying on over 20 pair (no exaggeration), I finally purchased a couple, which still didn’t excite me, but these were the lesser of the evils. I go home rather bummed about my apple-shaped body, and how my muffin-top waistline got a little out of control while we were traveling the past month.
But that night, as I was making love to my husband… lights on… covers off… me on top in all of my slightly pudgy glory… my husband visually scanned me up and down, rolled his eyes back in his head, and in all sincerity declared, “Oh, THANK YOU, GOD for a GORGEOUS WIFE!”
(and now we interupt this blog for a gratuitious disclaimer benefitting the slightly faint of heart… sorry to be so blunt, but understand this wasn’t a “missionary position in the dark” type of encounter. He was REALLY looking at me, not just visualizing what I must look like under the covers. And as my friend Nicole says, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those that mind don’t matter, and those that matter don’t mind.” Hope you didn’t mind my honestly. Now back to my point…)
Yes, I wanted to cry. But I just smothered him with kisses instead.
Guys, if you are reading this, realize how much your wife NEEDS to know that you think she’s sexy — not because she’s a size 4 or looks like Angelina Jolie, but simply because she’s a Sexually Confident Wife who freely shares her body with you and no one else.
Gals, if you’re reading this, not even Angelina Jolie looks like her pictures on silver screens and magazines. Get over yourself and get naked. Even get on top so your husband can drink your beautiful body in through his eyes. Don’t waste another minute moping about what you look like — enjoy your body for the incredible pleasure it provides both you and your husband.
Wishing you the BEST sex,
