Sure, it is nice when someone tells you that you are doing a great job….whether it is with work, with a project, or just something everyday. But, since being a Mommy is the most important thing I have ever done, I LIVE for positive reinforcement from friends, from other Mommys, and most especially from my husband.
I love when he tells me I’m a good Mommy. I love knowing he thinks I am a good person.
Last night, when he was trying to teach Delaney a lesson about the difference between external beauty and beauty that ‘comes from the inside’, he pointed to me. He said, “Delaney, you need to look at your Mommy. She is the perfect example of someone who is beautiful on the outside AND on the inside. Not only is she pretty, but she is kind, generous and loving.” I’m blushing again, even as I write.
How heavenly! Since telling your spouse they are special isn’t always on the tip of our tongues amid the day-to-day life of parenting….it is so wonderful to know he is proud of me! It is devine to know I am married to a man who loves me as much as I love him.
Today, I’m going to tell him how special he is.
