Revive Your Marriage - Can I Get an Ego Boost

3 down 2 to go....I'm talking about the great ideas going on over at the Revive Your Marriage blogger link up. If you haven't had an opportunity to read all the wonderful ideas flowing through cyberspace this month, I urge you to do so.

If you have read some of these posts, I hope they have been a sincere help to you.

How many parents out there praise their children for their good deeds? That's what I thought. We start at a young age telling a child "good job" & clapping our hands when they do something that pleases us. The child smiles & tries to do it again because they are seeking praise.

When we are training a new puppy, we praise it for obeying. This is the only way they learn what we consider good behavior.

Think back to when you were in school. When the teacher praised you, it made you happy & more often than not, you strived to repeat the process.

How different are we as adults? We are still looking for gratitude. We are still begging for appreciation. We are still searching for attention. We are still needing praise.

When was the last time you told your husband how good he looked? How nice he smelled? Or how he still made you a little hot under the collar?

When did you acknowledge that he mowed the grass? Changed the oil in the car? Or took the trash out?
Sounds simple, huh? But have you done it lately?

Don't think its important to thank him or to tell him how attractive he looks? Wouldn't you like for him to tell you that the house looks nice? Or that he likes your new haircut?

Trust me, he WANTS to hear your admiration, your respect, & your devotion. He NEEDS to hear it. We NEED to say it. We NEED to NEED our men.

Take a few minutes out of your super busy day & thank your husband for his efforts. Praise him for whatever help he provides for you. Remind him how you like the way he looks in those jeans. Show him the respect that he craves. I can just about guarantee that your efforts will be appreciated!
