Today I want to take a moment to write a letter to my wonderful husband and the father of my children. It is his birthday and I want to let him know how important he is for us and how much I love him. Sometimes, in marriage, we forget to celebrate each other and we let busy schedules get in the way. That’s why it’s so important to take time and appreciate each other. Life gets busy, days go by, then months and after we realize it, years have gone by. Find time to celebrate your husband (or your wife), and let him/her know how much they mean to you.
I want to wish you the best birthday yet. I want you to know that I love you with all my heart and that marrying you has been one of the best decisions in my life. You are everything I was looking for in a man and much more. We’ve been through alot together, good things and bad things, and in every moment you’ve been there. I know I don’t always say it but thank you for everything you do and everything you bring into my life.
Thank you for your dedication to our family and for the way you take care of us every day, without complaining. Thank you for your patience towards me and our little ones. Thank you for listening to me when I’m mad, stressed, happy or sad. I love that about you. Thank you for taking the time to teach our children about right and wrong. And for encouraging me to be the best I can be. You make me a better person, a stronger person, and you’ve taught me how to stand up for myself. Our children love you so much and I do too.
I’m sorry if I’ve ever made you feel unimportant, and I apologize for making you mad at certain times. I know I’m not the perfect wife but I try hard every day to be better than before. You are very important to me and I can’t imagine life without you. Every day is a special day for me when you are by my side.
I hope we get to share many, many more birthdays together, and I pray to God to always keep you in good health and away from harm. And I’d like to encourage you to find time to do the things you like to do, such as go running or biking. I know you’ve sacrifice a lot of time for us and I thank you for that as well. You are a wonderful man.
You are the best husband and the best father for our family. And I know you are not perfect, no one is, but you are perfect for me. I LOVE YOU and I’m excited about our future together.
With all my heart,
Why It Matters
Showing appreciation between husband and wife is very important to a healthy relationship. Once you get married and start having children, the attention between the two usually goes down. Children require a lot of attention, and that’s completely normal. But we shouldn’t forget about our partners. We should celebrate love, because that’s the reason we married each other.
To me, and my husband, it’s the little things that make a huge difference. Going out to a nice dinner date is nice, but sometimes we don’t even have to spend money to have a good time. There are a lot of things we can do to make our husbands feel loved and wanted:
- Thank him when he does sometimes nice
- Give him a nice long kiss like there is no tomorrow (just because)
- Hug him
- Slap his buttock randomly
- Admire his strenght
- Leave him a loving note
- Make his favorite food/dessert (and enjoy it together)
- Give him a feet massage
- Do an activity he likes together
- Initiate intimacy more often
I don’t think it’s our responsibility to make our husbands happy, but I do believe that if we got married to them, it’s because we wanted them to be happy. And sometimes we act the opposite way; we do things or say things that make them unhappy and unloved. Let’s not make that mistake. Love your husband, be happy together and appreciate each other every single day.
