Husband grew up in a household where the saying –action speaks louder than words exists. But the bonding within the family members is incomparable. They talk about everything and anything under the sun. Quiet closed. The word love is apparent from the parents down to the grandchildren.
I don’t know if I should share this but husband has been suffering depression since his papa, my FIL died last year. He is blaming himself for everything – when papa got his first stroke and the day papa died. Since they don’t kiss and say I love you in the household – husband’s first and last utter of I love you to papa and his last embrace was the day he died. I am guilty with this but I also grew up not used to saying I love you to my parents – BUT I often embrace, kiss and hug them when I get the chance. So imagine how much husband was feeling the day his beloved papa died.
In spite of it all, I see husband as a son who is willing to do everything and anything for his parents. He loves them to bits and sees to it that they live comfortably. Now that mama is alone, it’s husband silent rule to spend weekends in his parent’s house to at least bring smile to mama’s face by spending time with her.
