Know Your Man: Appreciation

"Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the gratefully and appreciating heart. " ~ Henry Clay

"There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread. " ~ Mother Teresa

We give them to our children. We give them to your friends and family; we give them to our pets. Heck, we even give them to strangers. Let’s encourage, admire, and appreciate our men and they will do whatever we wish. The sky is limit. But let’s not expect a reward. Every human being deserves it, especially the one with whom we are sharing our lives.

We can begin by saying: “Thanks for taking the garbage out, " or “Thanks for taking the towels off the floor, " or “Thanks for cleaning the litter box, " or “Thanks for cleaning the car, " or “I liked the way you spoke with our son just now, " or “I think you did a great job painting the wall, " “Thanks for your gift of attention and understanding, " and so on and so forth. You get the picture.

When we show our gratitude, we are also showing our respect and admiration towards the person with whom we share our lives. Soon, we noticed that, just like that, our relationships have improved and there is more love and understand to go around.

My American ex-husband had many faults, in my point of view, of course. However, he was very generous in showing his appreciation. Every evening, he would thank me for preparing dinner. This is one of the few good memories I have of my marriage and I never forgot it. How difficult is it to show appreciation and gratitude for the small things that people do for us?

A Word of Advice Ladies: Lavish him in praise and gratitude. You will be glad you did.

Gents: Return the praise and gratitude with another. Your relationship will soar.
