Why be thankful?
It shows love. It’s that simple. You may need to dig deep some days: “Thank you Lord that Mark flosses regularly.”
Other days it comes easier: “Thank you, Lord that Mark is a faithful man with integrity up the ying yang. I appreciate that SO MUCH about him.”
I wonder if he knows?
That’s the rub.
I invited a bunch for lunch, and besides the menu of salads and sweets and sweet conversation, I asked a leading question:
What do you appreciate about your husband?
We all shared ’round the table. Paul slept through it, but someday he will understand the goodness of his dad.
Always good hearing from Katy and Liz.
We went round and round and celebrated the goodnesses of our good men. The comments layered as we listened:
That’s my husband, too. So glad you mentioned that.
Is this something you should do? Brag on your man in the presence of others.*
Is this something you could do? That would be a yes.
Try it. And then tell him about it. It could help make a great man an even better great man.

Gratitude not expressed is not gratitude.
Do you agree? Isn’t feeling thankful good enough? You tell me.
**Reading The Husband Project by funny and practical Kathi Lipp. Her daily projects make your man feel loved–including speaking well about him to others. A good read for you (and your man.)
…in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:18
