I have been away for almost five days and I really missed my family. It was a great releive when I return to their warm embrace. The physical absence kind of create a sharp awareness of their wonderful roles in my life. I needed no one to remind me to say over again and again to my wife “I love you?”
But do we need to wait until such occasions before saying the words “I love you” or other nice words they are itching to hear? I read this article (author unknown) and I want you to go through it too.
How Husbands Can Emotionally Meet Their Wives’ Needs
When did you last tell your wife, “I love you?” When did she last hear those words that are music to her ears-“I really do need you”? Have you recently told her, “Honey, I think you are a really good mother for our children?”
The vast majority of wives are starving for verbal affirmation from their husbands. And most men are so thoughtless and insensitive that they will not give their wives what the wives desperately want and deserve.
We husbands gladly encourage our wives to buy food and grudgingly encourage them to buy clothes, but most who come to counseling just cannot dig deeply enough to give complimentary words. So, marriages are unfulfilling, wives feel unappreciated, and many marriages wither and die.
Husbands, speak up! God expects you, as the head, to do more than provide financially for your wife. He wants you to also provide for her emotional well-being. Whisper it, write it, or shout it-just get those words of affirmation to the ears of your wife.
Hey, go ahead and do it now! If she is not around, call her on her mobile. Write it on a post it and stick it in the kitchen, bathroom anywhere. Do it today! She deserve much more and you know it (you will be doing yourself a great favor if you do this 😉 ) Have fun!
