Make home a sweet home
I feel perfectly Gezelligheid with my husband. He is very dependable, caring, helps in household chores. Never complains about my chronic
illness. I feel very secure, comfortable and cozy in my home with him. We argue, we have difference of opinions but we give each other lot of
space. We always agree to disagree on some points without any hard feelings. Now, when I am writing about this, his so many good qualities
are coming to my mind. I think I take him for granted on so many matters. He is patience but firm in his opinion. He is the most gezelling person in my life.
