Who doesn’t like to feel appreciated? Everyone does and everyone has their own way of wanting to feel that appreciation. I love to be physically touched whether it’s a hug or a pat on the back and I love hearing the appreciation. Someone telling me I have done a great job or that what I did really helped because… (insert reason here). But I shouldn’t do that to others unless I know it’s how they like to know appreciation.
Just because you like to feel appreciation one way doesn’t mean your spouse, friend or colleague does too. If you are not sure how you like to feel loved and appreciated go to 5 Love Languages Quiz and see what you are! There is a quiz for men and women separately. It’s fantastic for the marriage!
My challenge to you today: Pick a person and show them appreciation.
My person for today? My husband. I know he likes hearing it, so I’m going to share it with the world (or at least those of you reading this blog! lol) what exactly he is for me.
My husband, Shane Getchell, is in one word (well two) my hero. He has saved me in so many ways through his love, his dedication and his heart. He would do anything for anyone at anytime. He is unselfish, brave, adorably handsome (I’m biased, lol) and sweet. In a time of fear for me he shows confidence. In a time of weakness for me he shows strength. In a time of being down he lifts me up. I’m so appreciative he asked me of all people to marry him because now I get to spend the rest of my life waking up to my best friend. No one else will ever understand my in’s & out’s like he will. No one else will ever see the bad days like he will. And yet he still sits besides me, picks me up when I need to be carried and pushes through with me so I reach the other side. Shane is the love of my life and I love him more and more every single day! Thank you baby for the best years of my life and more to come!
Tell a person that means so much to you how much you care. You might just make their day on a day when they are at the end of the rope.
