As far as I’m concerned, everybody deserves love, but too many people are not getting what they deserve. Society needs to do a better job of making sure we properly take care of our women, as well as uplift the men. A person goes through so much, and for so many that void of appreciation makes staying on track harder to accomplish. It would be a tough task to make sure every person received what they needed emotionally, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive for it. Even the men and women in relationships are feeling the void and we need to do a better job of correcting that. Our loved one’s should be our main source of appreciation outside of the love and appreciation from God and ourselves. As much as many of you aren’t getting the appreciation you deserve, are you making sure you are showing appreciation to others, and more importantly your spouse?

Below, let me help guide you in taking the right steps to show the appreciation I believe we all would like to receive.  Then let us know how you show appreciation to ones that you love.

Say “Thank You”

As simple as those words are, we seem to overlook them way too much.  A simple thank you can go a long way in showing some level of appreciation. It does not matter if what they just did for you was something simple, or extravagant, a thank you is always in order. Make a conscious effort to say those words, and never assume you don’t need to say it. Everyone likes for their efforts to be acknowledged and saying thank you is a great way to do that.

It’s important to be prepared and have an emergency kit in the event of destructive weather, power outages and whatever else may cause you to be without power for a few days. But are you prepared for an emergency in your marriage? Do you have the necessary supplies in case of a financial setback, sickness or even infidelity? I’ve listed a few essentials to have in your marital kit in case of an emergency.

1. Forgiveness. When your spouse does something wrong and asks you to forgive them, do it. Likewise, if you have done something wrong, please ask your spouse to forgive you. After you have forgiven, don’t ever, ever, ever throw it in your spouse’s face. If you keep bringing it up, you really haven’t forgiven them. Forgiving your spouse does not mean the behavior is acceptable, it just means you let it go. If you are the one who has been forgiven, don’t repeat the behavior because that means you were never truly sorry for your actions.

2. Sense of humor. You have to be able to laugh at yourself and each other. Laughter adds life to your marriage so don’t take everything so serious. Sometimes you will find that you may start laughing in the middle of an argument because what you’re fighting about really isn’t as serious as you thought. Also laughing can change the atmosphere of your marriage by creating a lighter feel to any tension that fills the room.

You must believe that your marriage is worth fighting for.

3. Faith. You must believe that your marriage is worth fighting for. Have faith in yourself and in your spouse to work through any storms that present themselves in your marriage. Above all, faith in God to see you through any situation is the most essential supply to have in your kit. When you can’t pray with your spouse, you have the ability to pray on your own. When you pray, believe that your prayers will be answered. They may not be answered in the way you think they should, but they will be answered.

Finally, having all three of the above supplies in your marital emergency kit will help you and your spouse weather any storm that comes into your marriage. Always inspect your kit to ensure the contents are available and in good condition. These supplies cost nothing and are easily obtainable.

BMWK – Can you think of any other supplies necessary for your marital emergency kit?
