Appreciation…a big word!

Hi y’all… So the last time I had written a little about this book called Marriage is Beautiful that I was reading. Well I have since finished the book and today I have a little treat for you. I asked the author of the book to write a little post for us. Below is what he wrote…….

I remember when my wife said the above words to me. She said it coolly, calmly and in a very soft voice. I was getting ready to go to the office then. I just smiled and said thank you.

I thought that was the end of it, but the words just kept on ringing in my ears for the rest of the day. I will be working on something and suddenly, I will just hear, you are the best husband ever all over again. Each time I hear the words, I will just start smiling all over again. I was so happy that day, putting cheerfulness into everything I was doing. Such is the power of appreciation.

Since then, my wife has kept on telling me on numerous occasions and in different ways how much she appreciates and loves me. Sometimes, it comes in a simple ‘thank you’ and at other times, with a surprise dish prepared and waiting for me as I come back home. On each of these occasions, this act has produced tenderness and a feeling in me that cannot be described by mere words. Any wife can make her husband to feel like a king by choosing the right words to build and uplift her husband. You can actually take your husband to great unimaginable heights of success by just speaking life giving words to your husband and showing appreciation as much as your creativity will allow you.

When you take a close look at it, saying thank you to our partner takes no effort, but is very important. There is nobody who is involved in a marriage union who won’t like to be appreciated. When your wife prepares for you a beautiful meal, telling them thank you and mentioning how beautiful the meal was makes them feel appreciated. Also telling your wife you value her contribution in the home and expressing your gratefulness for the effort she makes in taking care of the children will go a long way in boosting her self esteem.

A wife could also thank her husband for being the kind of man he is. She could appreciate him for everything he does for her and how happy she is to be with him. Men with their sensitive ego will always deeply feel this kind of appreciation. Thank you is a simple phrase that can give your marriage a new lease of life.

Begin today to show it!!!….

    • You are very welcome Kalu. I have found its easier to appreciate an outsider than to appreciate our spouse to their face. So I hope this article will help those of us who really do appreciate our spouses but find it hard to express it.
