Hey guys! So I really didn’t get a chance to post at all last week. My husband took a few days off and ya’ll know what that means 🙂 I really enjoyed his company but I also realized how exhausted he is. So I just want to take a few minutes to inspire all of you wives to take some time and let your husbands know how appreciated they are.
Now you can do this in many ways (preferably his favorites!) but I’m just going to share one that has been effective in my marriage. And that’s leaving random love notes. I’ve been doing this since we first got married, and I leave them everywhere from the microwave to the shower (which by the way is a great way to initiate some good GOOD lovin’!).
Now keep in mind that I’m a writer (meaning that I express my thoughts and feelings better on paper), and one of my husband’s strengths is that he is a GREAT communicator. So while my husband really gets a kick out of these notes, yours may only appreciate them in the moment. And that’s okay, you just have to make it worth his while.
For instance, the other night, I snuck outside and left a note in my husband’s car (while he was in the shower), telling him that I appreciate all of the hard work and sacrifices he makes for our family. My husband wakes up every morning at 4 o’clock, and heads out to work while the rest of us are still all warm and snuggly in the bed. Now even though I usually see him off (and talk to him the whole way there!) I thought that the note would motivate him because he’s tired and it did! It even opened up a conversation about his mornings that we may have never had. So I encourage you to start leaving your husband some special handwritten notes. And place them in places that you know he’ll stumble upon (wallets and lunch kits are a great place to start!).
In what other ways are you guys showing your husbands that you appreciate them?
