From church talks to magazine articles, we know what we should be doing for our husbands. But in all the hustle and bustle of life, sometimes we forget. Wives should always be more complimentary and praise their husbands. We know this, and we feel a little guilty. No excuses are needed here; we just need to remember all the good things our husbands do for us. So here are seven praises we should tell our husbands and remember the secret: (whispered) praise them when they are not in the middle of a project.
1. "I really appreciate you"
Husbands love to be appreciated and told by their wives that they are appreciated. Whatever your husband does to take care of the family, work hard at his job, and be a great father, he needs to hear you tell him this. These praises from you make life worth living.
2. "Thank you for doing that"
Remember to thank him out loud in whatever he does for you. Between raising children and working his job, there is little time for a "honey-do" list. Next time he does something for you, thank him. He will be more willing to do more in the future.
3. "That is a great idea"
Husbands love to contribute to problem solving so when he comes up with a great idea, tell him so. He will love you for it and maybe come up with more great ideas in the future.
4. "I really like ___ about you"
Choose a talent or good habit of your husband and tell him how much you like that about him. Even if his hobbies don't interest you, it interests him and that is what is important. This litttle comment will score extra brownie points and besides, isn't nice to hear compliments from your spouse?
5. "I am so proud of you"
Husbands thrive on positive comments. If your husband is making an effort to accomplish something, then these few words will make a big difference. Whether it's getting along with your difficult parents or getting rid of that tree stump in the yard, these words will bring sunshine to your companion.
6. "I'm glad you are in my life"
Lucky is the woman who has a hubby to help her with housework, car repairs, or whatever else you cannot get done during the week. Tell him how you feel and you won't regret it.
7. "You are so hot"
Whether he's overweight and bald or slim and trim, your husband wants to hear that you are still attracted to him. There are more ways to be attractive than the physical looks, anyway. Tell him when he looks good or does something you find attractive.
