Words of Affirmation For My Hubby

affirmation

Today’s blog is dedicated t0 my husband, with excerpts from a blog from Matthew Jacobson 

Rob said something the other night that surprised me as he was reading a survey online – “as we get older, we don’t smile as much”.  I stopped what I was doing and asked if he meant me?  You know that guilt thing was ready to kick in? He said the survey said that most people don’t smile as much as they get older… why is that?  There are days when he tries hard to make me smile and I never understood why.  I am not unhappy. I have a blessed life.  So, why don’t I smile as much or why don’t people in general as we get older.  Are we complacent in our lives?

I never realized the immense power that I have in the life of my hubby?  Affirmation to him (and most people in general) is something that they thrive on.  I began to think about how often I share my gratitude, my joy or a simple smile with him….as time goes on, it is less and less.  I figure after 13 years, he knows, right?  We all need affirmation (I know I do) – we have to have it and, oh, how we thrive with it. So here are some POSITIVE words of affirmation for my hubby….

1) Thanks for being a great husband!

2) I’m glad you’re my friend.

3) You’re a great Dad!

4) I really appreciate you.

5) You are my protector.

6) You are awesome!

7) I respect you so much.

8) You’re an excellent provider.

9) I love being with you.

10) You’re so smart.

11) You’re a hard worker.

12) When you hold me tight, I feel safe with you.

13) You’re so considerate.

14) I’ll always stand by your side.

15) I’ll go wherever you lead.

16) I love how steady and stable you are . . . makes me feel secure.

17) You are an unselfish person.

18) I want to grow old with you.

19) You’re a rock.

20 I trust your judgment.

21) Your approval means the world to me.

22) You are a thoughtful man.

23) Thank you for caring how I feel.

24) I totally trust you.

25) You inspire me to be the best I can be.

26) The hard times don’t matter – I’m with you.

27) You are a man of conviction.

28) You will always have my heart.

29) I am one blessed woman!

30) I’m always in your corner.

31) You have helped me to become a better woman.

32) Don’t think I don’t notice you putting (me) your family first.

33) God must really be looking out for me to give me a man like you!

34) Do you know how much I love you?

35) You’re a gentleman.

36) I love just being with you.

37) I’ll love you always and forever.

I may not say them a lot but I try to show him all of the time.  His efforts to make me smile made me realize just how much more I need to share these words of affirmation and more.  I need to lay “Independent Irene” down and share with him how blessed I am that we are together.

What about you?  Do you let your hubby (or wife) know just what she means to you? OR do you just “assume” that they know?  Use some of these words of affirmation or find some of your own to share with the love of your life.. SMILE a little more.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
