Recently I was accused of spoiling my husband. At first I was a bit confused, after all I often feel as though I am the one that gets spoiled. I mean my husband works hard to provide my needs, cooks for me on occasion, brings me home flowers often for no reason at all and he even cleans occasionally when I am looking a bit overwhelmed. I am a spoiled and dare I say even pampered. Yet, when it was turned around that I have been spoiling my husband I just didn’t see it.
You see we shouldn’t see doing things for our husbands that they like as spoiling. Instead we should look at it as honoring him. Our husbands should be able to feel loved and appreciated as much as we possibly can. Truth be told there are times I fail in this area and I know that I fail. Doesn’t mean I don’t stop trying or deem him impossible to please it means that I go back to the drawing board. However over the years I have come up with a few things that I have found that my husband loves and dare I say it even spoils him if we must use that word.
- Cooking his favorite meal. My husband loves certain meals. On the nights that my husband is home those tend to be the meals that I prepare because I know that he loves them. After all he works hard to provide the funds for our food should he not reap the benefits? Not only does he appreciate it but if also show him that I listen to the things he enjoys.
- I make sure that I am making time for him. I am a busy woman. I mean if I were to tell you all the things I am involved in you would assume there were two or three of me. It is easy for me to get absorbed in my activities. My husband is a quiet man so often times he won’t even say a word. Yet, when I notice that I have been a tad neglectful I make sure that I make time to watch his favorite show with him, play a game with him or even just simply take time to talk to him about all the things that are going on in his life. This shows him that he is still my number one person.
- I do tasks around the house I know my husband doesn’t have time for. It would be way easy for me to just make a list of all the things that I need done around the house. Yet, my husband really just does not have the time. Between working, running errands and helping out others his time is extremely limited. Therefore I have found that youtube is a great source of information when you don’t know how to fix something. I have also learned that google can be your best friend. Now I am not saying that I never have things I need fixed or done. But, I try ti have as much of it done as possible so that he can relax when he is actually home.
- I choose to serve him happily. If my husband has a special request I simply do it. After all I am his partner which means he should be able to let me know what he needs and know that it will get done. I take joy in knowing that he feels he can trust me with things.
The one thing we need to remember is that it is not “spoiling” our husbands when we are honoring them. If we are following the proper order of the family dynamics our husband is suppose to be right under God. Would you not do all of those lings listed about for God if He was in human form and living in your home? I would love for you to share some ways that you are spoiling your man.
