The Power of a Note – Let Him Know He’s Loved The Power of a Note – Let Him Know He’s Loved
by Cindi McMenamin
I was feeling out of sorts on a particular Tuesday. My feelings were hurt about a comment my husband made toward me the night before. My expectations were not met in a conversation with a friend that morning. My daughter had an attitude when I picked her up from school. I was exasperated. Tensions were rising. And something inside of me was ready to blow.
I walked through the front door in tears, feeling lousy and unloved. I walked up the stairs and into my study and stopped abruptly! There it was…
On my computer keyboard was a single red rose, wrapped in cellophane. On it was a note, in my husband’s handwriting, that simply said: “Love you, Wife.”
Oh, the power of a note.
I am loved. I am not a loser. I am loved.
It wasn’t a huge revelation. Deep down, I knew my husband loved me. But the gesture – right there in front of me – the expression, simple yet sincere, spoke volumes. I was reminded. I was brought back to reality. I am loved.
Your husband also has days that make him want to blow.
What if – during those times that your man is under extreme pressure and coming up with few words for you –you found some extra meaningful words for him? What if you realized, in the fiery pit of everyday tensions, the power of a note?
Try it. Get into his car when he’s away and put a sticky note on his steering wheel that says “You drive me crazy…in a good way!”
Stick a note in his duffel bag, on his bathroom mirror or under the toilet seat that says something special so he knows he’s admired, respected, desired and loved.
Never, ever underestimate the power of a note!
