My husband is great at making me feel appreciated. He so often reminds me that I am enough in a world that is constantly telling women to do more.
He recognizes how draining my job as a stay-at-home mom is and how much energy it takes to keep a household running. He tells me he appreciates the things I do and that I don’t need to be doing anymore than I already am.
He compliments me on my post-baby body. You know, the one with stretch marks and saggy parts, and a few extra pounds. He makes me feel pretty even when that’s not what I see when I look in the mirror.
But so often I forget to reciprocate those kind words.
Sometimes, I get into the mindset that he’s got it easy as he heads out the door each day to hang out with adults and enjoy business lunches. I forget to tell him the things about him that I find attractive. I forget to mention how much I admire him and how he has given our family everything we need.
I forget to tell him that he is enough; that I don’t want any more than I already have.
So, I wrote him a love letter of sorts to tell him that he truly is enough in my eyes and you can read it here at Her View From Home. I encourage you to let your own husband know how much he is appreciated!
