Recently, over at the Peacefulwife Blog, my wife ran a guest post entitled “101 Ways to Show Respect for Your Husband.”  This was an awesome list, so the Peacefulwife asked if he could come up with 101 Ways to Love your Wife.  After working on it a couple of weeks he came back with a great list.  I can say for certain that after the Peacefulwife read it she thought each way was spot on.  I decided that the whole 101 was a bit much to swallow at one time so I am going to post it in a series by the categories.
