Importance of Expressing Respect and Admiration
Hi Dr. Laura!

Here's some adult humor with a point I thought you'd get a kick out of. Today, I was thinking that I am a consistently happy wife. I'm always on Cloud 9 and it seems like I hardly ever come down.

My husband means the world to me, and I had an overwhelming urge to send him a text telling him how I feel. I usually send naughty little messages, but this time I felt I needed to send something a bit more heartfelt, so I texted him that I love him more than anything; that I respect and admire the hell out of him, and that he's wonderful. I did not expect the reply I got back from him... He said, "Oh stop. You're giving me a chubby!" I laughed, he sure has a way with words... but it certainly drives the point home of how much it means to our men when we women clearly state these things!

Thanks for all you do!
