‼️It’s OKAY to celebrate YOUR husband and the ways he steps up to support YOU as a mom, even for things other people say isn’t a big deal because that’s what he “should be doing”!
Just imagine what a difference it could make if the next time your husband steps up to support YOU as a mom (especially after doing the work to be specific in asking for the support that you need from him)
you replaced your…
❌“It’s about time you stepped up” attitude/comment
✅ “Babe… I see you stepping up for me and the family”
✅ “Thank you so much for making me/us/this a priority”
Or a simple
✅ “Thank you. I appreciate you”
What we focus on… whether with criticism or encouragement… is often what we SEE repeated!
Am I encouraging my man and letting him know I appreciate the ways he’s supporting me and the family? (Yes, even while you’re working on other areas?)
Or do you find yourself **ONLY** highlighting his mistakes, failures and how he’s disappointing you?
Listen no husband/wife or marriage is perfect… we all make mistakes, fall short, miss the mark… but I find it to be so very important to celebrate the moments when we get it right, as we work on those other areas!
You can do both! Stop letting culture dictate what’s worthy of celebrating in your marriage!
Momma, I know firsthand the power of recognition/celebration/making deposits.. and I promise you… making deposits and empowering your husband will only do wonders for the future of how he supports you as a mom!
