Husband Appreciation Day

Today is Husband Appreciation Day. I'm glad there is a day set aside for husbands.

I am not talking about those terrible abusive husbands. I have been there and if you have one of those, get out while you can. Seriously.

In today's world, I do not think husbands are getting enough appreciation. Husbands are more disrespected than ever. I see a lot of wives take for granted what the husbands do as if "that's what they are suppose to do". You see it in public. You see it on the news and you can see it in every sitcom on TV. The women seem to make all the rules and drag the husband roles to pity. They make husbands look dumb and try to glamorize women that are bossy and demanding. Women's heads are getting filled with the idea they do not even need a man anymore. When did this start happening? I don't know what I would do without mine.

If you have a husband that loves the Lord, helps make a home and makes sure you (and your children) have a roof over your head and food on the table, he needs to be appreciated. If he is unable to do any of those things yet is faithful to you and loves you, he needs to be appreciated. NEVER insult your husband or disrespect him, especially around the children or in public.

I grew up believing the man is meant to lead the home. Head of the household. Now I know that jobs, chores, money and time now days take both husband and wife equally, so call me old fashioned, but I think the man is the superior. Husbands also should respect their wives, I know that, but today is about husband appreciation.

“The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her.” 
Proverbs 31:11

I appreciate my Husband so much. He is always there for me. He takes care of me. I trust him. He is smart and knows a lot more than I do. I still get butterflies when I look into his eyes. I love going to bed with him each night and waking up to him each morning.
He lets me make my own decisions and is always there to back me. He is always there supporting me while I do my silly little things and try new ideas. Except for painting the kitchen. He will not let me do that but that's ok. I respect his decision. I am not one of those women who say "I don't care if you like it or not, I'm doing it anyway". Any big decisions are discussed and only played out if we both agree.

My husband makes sure I have things I want and always the things I need. He will have my lunch and snacks packed each day, makes my coffee each morning and makes sure my car is running before I head off to work. He watches as I pull away and is happy to see me when I get home. Sometimes he will walk around my car to make sure I didn't hit any nails in the road and reminds me when its time for an oil change. He worries about my safety and makes sure I am always protected weather it's with security when hes with me, or how my car is functioning when I'm out driving . He takes care of me and my daughter.

Are you married? If so, here are a few things to show your husband how much you appreciate him.
  • Forget about what's made you mad and find good things about your husband.
  • Never put him down to your friends or family. 
  • Look at him in the eyes when he talks. 
  • Listen to him.
  • Compliment him.
  • Do not interrupt him when he is talking.
  • Let him know how much you love him.
  • Tell him how thankful you are to have him.
  • Thank him for loving you.
  • Always give hugs and kisses.
  • Pray with him.
  • and Pray for him.  
Today and always, I hope you let your husband know how much he is appreciated. Make him feel good and feel important. A man needs to know you look up to him. If you do this, you may even find him doing the dishes or laundry later.

“The head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 
1 Corinthians 11:3

  1. I absolutely abide by the notion that our significant others in life need to know they are appreciated and loved. Respect for each other is paramount. Wonderful that you got out of an abusive relationship and built a wonderful life and marriage with someone who treats you well and respects you. To say that the man is superior is where you lost me. We are all created equally and are capable of great things, with or without a partner. Together with support from each other it's even better and like you, that's how I choose to live my life. To say that men or superior to women is truly astounding in this day and age. I know many women who are the head of their household, too, both in monetary contribution and child rearing. Interestingly, they don't see themselves as superior to their spouse.

    1. You are right. I guess superior is a strong word. I see him this way but to hear him tell it, he thinks Im superior. Lol. We are equal and share the load. He never thinks he is above me and I never think Im above him. :)

  2. I am one of the few male bloggers. I am a husband, loved appreciated and blessed. I am one of the fortunate individuals, she tolerated my youth and jealousy and loved me. Now for 62+ years we have been a team. She always thinks I am the head of the two ('cept when she sees different!, LOL)
    SHE is the best (and the prettiest one around!)
    From the both of us

  3. Great post! Wonderful to read. I do think that there should be an appreciation day! I really do appreciate my hubby as I have been in the hospital and doc offices at the start of our marriage, when some guys may have just flown the coop, when they found their wife Chronically ill. He is my best friend and we both work from home, so we have to love each other!
    You wrote some wonderful points and I think they are so important!
    Wishing you a Happy Easter Lisa!

  4. i appreciate my hubby. don't know what i'd do without him. thank you for alerting me to this appreciation day.

  5. I didn't even know it was husband appreciation day. I have one of the great husbands who is also my best friend.

  6. Thank you for letting me know, unfortunately, I missed it due to our being at a business meeting all last week. The husband I have now is totally awesome and I would not trade him for anything! The first one, not so much...abusive and angry all the time. I tell Edward daily how much I appreciate everything he does and how great he is...I try not to over do it as I don't want his head to get so big he can't get through doorways. :-) Having a great husband is such a wonderful thing! Hugs!
