3. Make Your Wife Feel Appreciated
Slide 3 of 5
There are all kinds of appreciation days that people celebrate, including the familiar Pastor Appreciation Day and the not-so-familiar National Kazoo Day (according to this modern calendar).
However, there is one appreciation day that should happen most days of the year—the make-your-wife-feel-appreciated day.
Oh, how easy it is to go through life without stopping to appreciate the people we love most! We overlook them, ignore them, and grow to expect certain things from them, all without showing how grateful we are.
Let’s change this pattern, shall we? Instead of falling into the trap of complacency, take action and show your wife how thankful you are—for her hard work, attentiveness to your family, and commitment to your marriage.
Here are a few ways husbands can make their wives feel appreciated:
- Surprise her with a day to herself.
- Point out the ways in which she enriches your life.
- Take over some of the duties that are stressful to her.
- Speak highly of her to others.
- Let her know you notice her efforts.
The more appreciated a wife feels, the more likely she is to go above and beyond to nurture your relationship. She’ll thrive in her role as your wife and actually want to keep pouring into your marriage. Sometimes, it’s the smallest tokens of appreciation that bring the greatest rewards.
