I need to be more intentional about showing my husband he is loved and appreciated.
I realize that sometimes life just gets in the way, and sometimes we look up and days (or weeks!) have gone by without us making a meaningful connection and remember that God brought us together. At some point, if we raise her right and we live long enough, our baby girl will go off and create a life of her own, and it will be just me and my husband. I don’t want us to be just strangers living in the same house and taking up the same space. I want my husband to be my best friend, and I want to be his. In order to do that, I have to do my part in making sure we stay connected.
Maybe you’re there too. Between bills and babies, maybe you awaken one day and realize you and your husband aren’t connecting the way you should or the way you want to. Maybe that’s not what either of you want. Maybe you don’t know where to start to get your relationship back on track. Maybe you should pray, then take the first step.
Here are a few suggestions of things to say to your husband. I think the key is to be authentic and sincere. Find a phrase below that speaks to you, then speak the words to your spouse. While texting, writing or emailing the words is okay, I suggest looking into his eyes and saying them.
- I believe in you.
- Thank you for loving me.
- Thank you for making my dreams come true.
- You’re a great father.
- Thank you for making me want to be a better person.
- I love you.
- I appreciate you.
- I’d still chose you.
- I’m committed to you and our marriage.
- Thank you for being my best friend.
