Showing Appreciation

Happy Couple

You'e the Best!!

I was amazed when I Googled “Showing appreciation to your”. That’s all I had to type and the options were numerous. Can you guess what category came up first to complete the sentence I was writing? If you guessed “wife”, you were right. Isn’t it amazing that there were so many references to “Showing appreciation to your wife”. Could it be that we men need help? I dare say “YES”.

Men we have to confess that showing our sweet wife the appreciation she deserves is typically not at the top of our lists of priorities. Why is that? Why are our top priorities our job, our hobbies, others, and sometimes even the dog….instead of her?

That is one of the great stumbling blocks for us men. Guys, let’s turn this stumbling block into a stepping stone. Showing appreciation is not a difficult job. Don’t overcomplicate it. Take some time and develop some creative ideas to start. Sometimes it’s a simple Post It note in her purse expressing how much you love her. You CAN get her a Hallmark Card at the local store and give it to her “Just Because…”

One of the other great ways is to write a love letter. There is nothing more precious to her than to read words you have written down on paper. She will know that you must have taken special time to think through and craft this letter. Look at it this way…The Bible is God’s love letter to us. If He thought it important enough to communicate His love in written form, then why shouldn’t we, for the one we love, go do likewise?

Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed and neither will she!
