Show Your Appreciation

”Do you show your spouse appreciation?Do they know how grateful you are for all that they do for you and your family?Here are a few ideas to help you find ways to express yourself so they will never doubt your appreciation.

Thank you notes:

Leave thank you notes for your spouse at the end of each day.Leave a note on their nightstand or a sticky note on the mirror telling them “thank you.”“Thank you for taking the kids to school today,” “thank you for making dinner tonight,” “thank you for working so hard to provide for our family.”No matter how big or small, it is important to let your spouse know that what they do does not go unnoticed.

Sending daily text:

It seems these days our phone is attached to us almost every moment of the day.Take advantage of it to send a quick text of appreciation to your spouse.Did they run to the bank or empty the dishwasher?Did they make you coffee or take out the trash? Send a quick note to tell them thank you.A gesture as simple a surprising text will let them know you noticed what they did and that you cared enough to tell them.

Say “thank you” outloud:

I am sure deep down you really do appreciate your spouse.The question is, do you tell them?You may think in your head, “that was really nice of her to run to the store to grab milk,”or “it was so thoughtful for him to pick up Chinese take out, so I didn’t have to cook tonight.”Make sure you don’t keep those thoughts just in your head; say them out loud.Don’t let thoughts of gratitude go unspoken.They are much more valuable when they can be heard by others.

Plan a little something special:

Every once in a while, go above and beyond for your spouse.Plan a special home cooked meal by candlelight, give them a massage, take them out to their favorite restaurant, or bring home their favorite dessert.Taking time to go out of your way to do something special will make your spouse feel loved and appreciated.

We all work hard at trying to provide for our family, to be loving and supportive of our spouses and to take care of our children.Each of us deserves to be recognized for all of the energy and effort we make.Be sure you are doing your part to tell your spouse, “thank you!” for all that they do.It doesn’t take much to let your spouse know you appreciate them.Your spouse and your marriage will thank you for it!
