Before we began our day this morning my wife hugged me and said
“Good morning, my man of steel.”
Wow! What a way to start off a gloomy Tuesday! 🙂
I’m not into superheros or anything like that but what she said sure made me feel good! Afterwards, I began to think about how important it is to compliment our spouse in ways that aren’t, well, typical.
My wife could have said “Good morning handsome,” which is nice but isn’t quite as memorable. Instead of saying “you look nice”, how about “when I look at you, I lose sight of everything else?” You get the point.
Keep it mind that it’s not just what you say but how you say it. Why not drop whatever you’re doing when your wife walks into the room, go over while staring into her eyes and, in a romantic voice, pay her a compliment that will make her knees weak ?
As the years roll on couples get common with each other and we need to remind our spouse-and ourselves-how much we appreciate our other half.
Our 12th anniversary is coming up and I can see that work, raising kids, paying bills all make large withdrawals on our imaginary “love bank account.” To combat this, in part, each day I make it a point to tell my wife how much she means to me.
Try it out! Even if your wife isn’t dressed up, tell her how gorgeous she looks (and you can pile on multiple adjectives here!). When you see your husband, think outside the box and give him a compliment he’ll never forget.
Just don’t use “man of steel”; that one’s already taken! 🙂
