5 Ways To Make Time for Your Boo During the Holidays- Part 5

Posted on Posted in Embracing Life, Embracing Love, Embracing Marriage

As I close out this list of tips, I am hopeful that you have taken them to heart. It’s important that we make time for our Boo during the holidays since it’s easy to forget about their needs. This last tip is the most important to me and I think you will agree.

Tip #5

Thank Them – I cannot express enough how important thanking your spouse for their support, no matter how little you think it might be. Saying “Thank You” goes a long way. This gratitude opens doors for even more support for your future projects. If they brought a case of water in from your car, say, “Thank you”. If they waited up past their bedtime for you before you gave them their special time, say, “thank you.”

Also, try sending text messages throughout the day and especially at night, to let them know they are on your mind. Even though you may be nose deep in your busyness, taking a few minute to shoot them a sexy text, may do wonders for your love life. I’ll send Don a text while he is in the man-cave and I’m in the bedroom just to let him know I was thinking about him.

Men need to feel needed and wanted. It’s our job to do it or someone else will. That’s straight talk, with no chaser.

So sister girl, as you navigate through the holidays, try to remember, this season is not 100% only about you. Your spouse is affected too. If you incorporate these tips, you will have a great holiday season and a happy new year.

Making time for them will create a bond that you will cherish for years to come.

I know these last few tips have helped me tremendously. What about you?

  1. So true! On days when I know my hubby is having a rough day at work, I try to make it a point text him and let him know how much I appreciate all he does for our family.

  2. I think this is probably the best tip of all. My husband loves to cook, and l never forget to say thank you to him every meal. It makes him feel good and l know he appreciates it :-).

  3. I am so big on thanking my husband daily even for the smallest things. I know he appreciates me acknowledging everything he does and i also know ti helps him keep doing them even at times when he may not feel like it.

  4. “Thank you”…two simple words that go so far. One of the easiest ways to let someone know you appreciate them.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Love this tip! As “Words of Affirmation” being one of my love languages I understand just how much a small word of thanks can mean!

  6. This tip is really clutch, especially since like you said, men really want to be needed and appreciated. I try to make a point to say thank you often, even for the little things.

  7. The holidays drain my energy. I’m the youngest in the family so people just assume I have extra energy to carry all the plans. Needless to say, I need my husband to massage and do for me more during the holidays than any other time.

Hey girlfriend, share your thoughts...
