I watched him jump from one chair to another. He glanced up after each jump to see if I was watching.
“Wow, that was awesome,” I said, giving him the affirmation he craved.
I hope I never forget the pride in his voice as he stopped and said, [quote]”Thanks Mom. I’ve always wanted to be awesome to someone.”[/quote]
If I’d realized my admiration was so important to my son, I would have said it sooner.
And yet, how often do I let that bigger man in my life go too long without my praise and admiration?
In the course of living life together day after day, it’s so easy to let the disapproval and disappointment or even occasional downright disgust show through to my husband –even if it’s left unspoken.
I don’t want my husband to feel any negative feelings from the woman who promised to love and honor him ’til death parts us.
Here are 30 Ways I Want to Make My Husband Feel:
- like he’s making the right decisions
- good at his work
- great father
- anxious to get home to me
- a good lover
- like he’s a fun guy (my son says that’s important)
- good at solving problems
- excited about living life with me
- like he made the right decision when he chose me
I’m thinking that as long as I feel these ways about my husband, he’ll feel me feeling it, and he’ll end up feeling all these ways and more! And since they’re all true, I might as well think them (Philippians 4:8) 😀 It’s really not that complicated!
