a large meat lovers pizza

I've always thought the hubs and I have a great marriage, but something hit me hard this week. I don't encourage him nearly enough. Whoa. What?? Sure I do. I'm his wife, and I'm an AWESOME wife at that.  But I get complacent.  I get comfortable. He knows I love him. He knows I'm proud of him. But does he hear it enough? Not likely.

That hurts my heart just a bit. A lot of bit actually. I should be a constant stream of compliments. An overwhelming encourager. His rock. It's easy as women to fall short of this, because we are the woman. We aren't strong and steady like our man.  We have hormones, we have babies and we have dirty houses. The dishes scream at us, the kids scream at us.  It's easier to crawl into bed at night and curl up with the latest vampire novel than our husband. {Yikes, I don't read those things by the way, I would totally have nightmares.}

Because, I wanna end up like this couple...

There are few things that really grinds my gears worse than a woman openly dogging her man.  It breaks my heart when women gripe and complain about their hubby on twitter or their blog. And then they wonder why he's not helping around the house or taking her out on a date.

Ummm....hello?! Stop your complaining, and start your encouraging! Be his rock. Don't let home be a place he dreads coming to after work because he's just going to hear your moaning and groaning. Be partners, be friends, be lovers. {"That word bums me out unless it's between the words meat & pizza" - name that quote and you get 10 cool points}

So, women. It's time to put your big girl panties on and be there for your man. Encourage him!!! Curl up with him! Love him, and heck even do things that bright shiny bling on your hand allows you to do. I promise he will respond positively, and will be a better husband and dad for it.

And if it doesn't, I'll have a meat lovers pizza delivered to your door. Heck, I'll personally hand deliver it and smush it in his face because that man is messed up if he doesn't fall in love with you all over again!
