"My Husband Rocks" Friday

This week's prompt has two parts:

First, list at least one thing your husband did or said in the past week that reminded you why you love him. Everyone has to have at least one - even on a "bad week" - it doesn't matter how big or how small! Nothing that touched your heart is insignificant!

And second, share a "Generous Wife Tip" - it can be on any subject - anything that you do or would like to do more often to make your husband feel loved and respected!

Last week when I cleaned the house, Scott told me SEVERAL times how great the house looked and what a good job I do:) I never get tired of hearing that! In addition to a feeling of accomplishment when I complete weekly tedious chores, it is extra special to win praises from my husband♥ He appreciates me!

When I was pregnant with the twins and we lived in our townhouse, I was on modified bed rest and was unable to keep up with the house work. Scott and Zach helped a lot. Scott did all the laundry. Even still, we decided to pay for a cleaning service to come in twice a month. I LOVED having a cleaning service!! How I wish I could afford that luxury now:) After the first 2-3 times the cleaning lady came, Scott said to me "you do a much better job when you clean the house". That compliment has stayed with me:) I think about those words every time I clean! (hmmmm, I wonder if that was his master plan?!?!)

My Generous Wife Tip - Cook for your husband! I am sure, many of you cook for your husband every night. Do something a little extra ~ make a favorite snack of his and bring it to him while he is watching tv or "unwinding" from his day. Make his favorite dessert. Pack his lunch for work. I feel that preparing food or drinks for our hard working husbands is a good way to show our respect!

This is what I do on occasion : I cook a nice dinner for the family OR just make something quick and easy like sandwiches or biscuits and I bring a plate up to my unexpecting husband - to enjoy while he is working. I have an advantage here because he works from home and he is right upstairs. This is a small gesture, but I can see it makes Scott happy when I show up with a plate of goodies:) This is something I should do more often, but I also like to just let him know "dinner is ready" and make him come and get it so we can all see him for a few minutes. LOL

I just love getting compliments on the tedious things! It's the only thing that makes it bearable... and worth doing again and again and again! And congrats on having a hubby who can do laundry! Mine "personalized" our white towels with a bluish tint the first month we were married and has been banned from laundry duty ever since! :D
