When my husband gets home from work I have learned to stop whatever I am doing to greet him.
I intentionally have to set aside that time to make him feel loved, important and encouraged after a long day.
I began to feel convicted that I wasn’t putting him above my chores. You see, I have a whole list of excuses: the dishes are piling up, my son just spilled his milk all over the floor, the laundry isn’t folded, dinner’s in the oven…. the list could go on and on.It wasn’t always like that. Most days he would come home and I would glance over at him while holding my baby with one hand and multi-tasking with the other. I would lean over to give him a quick peck on the cheek and then go about my business.
But what is really important, your to-do list or a loved husband?
Show him you care about him more than a clean house. I can’t speak for all husbands but I know mine would rather have my full attention and love, more than a tidy kitchen.
So next time your husband comes home after a weary day, really greet him.
I don’t mean with a quick peck either.
Knock his socks off and kiss him like you mean it!
