My husband works a full time job and then comes home and works from home into the wee hours of the morning. He provides for our family so that I CAN stay home. We have a roof over our head, clothes on our backs, food on our table and no bill collectors calling because he works hard. As his wife I need to let him know I appreciate all he does. I need to spread that appreciation to my children so they understand why Daddy is so tired and they thank him for his hard work too.
This week or weekend I challenge you to do something special for your husband to let him know that you and the kids appreciate his hard work. We made a cake and put a little sign in it that the kids made, thanking daddy for his hard work and telling him he's the #1 Dad! We had to wait till about 7:30 at night for him to come home from work to share a supper and the desert with him. Instead of singing "Happy Birthday" we sang "Thank you for all your work". I could see in his face that he appreciated it. That he knew he was loved and appreciated. It doesn't have to be extragent. Ours sure wasn't, but you should let him know you're thankful.
However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects (honors) her husband.
