Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!
And, although it is typically that day when men do nice things for the women in their lives, we women can get in on the fun as well.
You may celebrate with fancy dinners, cards, and candy. Or, you may be the type that buys your man a new shirt or golf balls or a new fishing rod.
Whether you purchase a gift or not, you can show great honor to your man by telling him how much you appreciate him.
You can give him the gift of words this year for Valentine’s.
Kind words can be written in a love note or in a Hallmark card. You can write little notes on index cards or sticky notes.
You can even take out your favorite lipstick and write him a sweet note on the bathroom mirror!
And, you can open your mouth and SAY some kind words to that man of yours as well.
What can you say (or write)?
Here are 5 Things That Every Man LOVES to hear from the Woman in His life (according to my man):
1} I Respect You!
Here’s an example: “As a man, as a person, as a dad, as a husband, as you are – I respect and admire you. Even after all of these years, I still respect you.
2} I Appreciate You as a Man!
Here’s an example: “I appreciate you and who you are as a man of integrity. I am so grateful for who you are. I am thankful that I am your wife/girlfriend.”
3} I Appreciate What You Do!
Here’s an example: “I am thankful for all that you do for us – for working hard, for giving your best, and for providing for us as you do.”
You can add your own list of what you are thankful for!
4} I Love You!
Yes! They like to hear it too!
5) I Think You Are the Best, and I Would Choose You if I had it to do All Over Again!
Now, plan your attack on that man with good words.
Speak kind words to him, say good words about him, and write some good words to him.
I think you’ll find that your man will LOVE these words of affirmation – especially coming from you.
And, what better time to speak kind words than at Valentine’s!
Proverbs 16:24 puts it this way, “Kind words are like honey; they are easy to accept and good for your health.”
So, what do you think?
~ Does your man like to hear affirming words from you? ~ How have you seen your words impact him for good? ~ What are you doing for your man for Valentine’s this year?
I always enjoy hearing from you!
