Real-life Romance: Thank Him
How do you do it all?
I get that question ALL THE TIME. A lot of times, I say something about "I just do it."
But then I think. No. It's not just me.
My husband helps A LOT. He makes sure I can carve out time for writing/editing/marketing. He nods and waves me on when I schedule a book signing or register for a conference to help me improve.
He takes on so much with the children, and always makes sure I get a shower by myself. Lovely!
He takes out the trash each week, including the dirty cat litter. And often ends up doing the Goodwill runs, too.
That may not seem like much, but it all adds up to a big thing.
Here's the deal, though. Sometimes I forget to say "thank you."
A lot of times, honestly.
And that's not okay. Because he needs to know. He needs to know how much I appreciate him and all the little things he does to make my dreams come true. He needs to know how much I trust him. And how much I appreciate that he's always there when needed. Because not everyone has that. I am truly blessed to have my husband in my life.
Not to mention the fact that I know Words of Affirmation are one of his top love languages.
So, let's make a pact. Let's show our men how much we appreciate them. Because they need to know. And who knows? It might even increase the romance in our own lives, too. ;)
Have you thanked your spouse lately?
