Ok, so last night is what I was missing to a certain degree. We had 4 other couples over to celebrate the end of a marriage Bible study I had been doing with the ladies. It was actually his idea to have everyone over. We had these bracelets the guys were giving the ladies . ( It was a surprise for them.) So I handed out the bags to the guys to give the gals and I looked at my husband and said, "I don't know where mine is." ( He had ordered mine on his own as a surprise, but then didn't realize I was ordering them..long story but he had mine.) He left the room and came back with a grill part and tried to hand it to me with great laughter, including my own. Later we were sharing stories of some of the practical jokes we've played on each other over the years.. It is that twinkle in his eye teasing that I miss. His teasing is NOT mean or tinged with sarcasm ( you know the kind of joking I'm talking about) It is good natured, sweet teasing. I remember when I met his grandparents and I thought, "Ah.. this is where he gets it from." because they had the same kind of sweet teasing relationship and he loved giving her a hard time.
THAT is what I really miss. Last night was a lot of fun.
That is awesome. Now be sure and tell him very directly that you loved the evening and that you need more of that.
