Words, Gifts, Acts, Time and Touch are ways that you can show your husband that you love him. Life gets busy and often times we take care of whatever is screaming at us first even though in our hearts we want to give our husband top priority.
I don’t tell my husband how much I appreciate him often enough. He is way more selfless than I am and my life is better because of him. I am feisty and he still loves me.
The Five Love Languages on 5lovelanguages.com helps us know how to effectively show love in a way that blesses them.
Words of affirmation
Acts of Service
We all have a love language which speaks more clearly to us than all the others. My husband loves to hear Words of Affirmation. We are a little different so I have to be intentional in how I show him that he is loved.
Here’s a list for 30 ways to show your husband that you appreciate him, either in Words, Gifts, Acts, Time or Touch.
I did not add Sex to the list but please take my encouragement that sex is so important to your man and to your relationship. If he isn’t wanting sex, there may be an issue you need to talk about or explore with a doctor. Just don’t let it be you that is withholding sex because in my opinion, sex is so good!
I don’t feel obligated to do all of these things in a month, and believe me I won’t.
This list would exhaust me if I thought I had to cram it into one month.
If I spread these ideas throughout the year, my husband is sure to feel loved.
