One of the things I need to work on is making sure that I show my husband how much I appreciate what he does. He is a very hard worker, always has been and I'm sure he always will be. His work is both stressful and physical and he often comes home exhausted...only to find a 2 year old that wants to play and a wife that needs his time too. And you know what? He steps up every time, without complaint. He is a magnificent dad and an outstanding husband and I know that I am truly blessed. The problem is that I don't show him that appreciation enough.
Today, whilst on Pinterest I came across a printable from the Dating Diva's. It was perfect!I enjoy magazines, flowers, bubble bath etc as a treat, Tim simply enjoys food. Doesn't every man? When I saw this free printable I knew it was perfect. I simply printed and laminated it and then ran to our corner store to pick up a bag of MnMs. Done.
If you can't read it, here it is:
The Spouse Survival Kit:
Each colour has a different cure.
Take the prescribed dose and don't take anymore.
When you're grouchy and mean, I recommend GREEN.
For the times you are down, I suggest BROWN.
ORANGE is a special coating, it will help minimise bloating.
The aches in your head are cured by RED.
To help you mellow, take a dose of YELLOW.
If you're agitated too, take a handful of BLUE.
If your life is a drag, just eat the whole bag.
We then left it on his pillow to surprise him when he got home from work. Mission complete. One very easy way to show that you have thought of your husband during the day and that you appreciate what they do.
