What Are You Giving Your Sweetheart?

Dear Fellow-Wives,This morning I came upon a wonderful article about remembering our husbands during this busy time of year. I knew I just had to share it with all of you! Here's just a sampling. (To read the complete article, follow this link.):

'Julie and April were helping in their children's kindergarten class a few weeks before Christmas, as they discussed all the antics they had been through to get their kids the perfect Christmas gifts. They laughed and giggled about all they had done to find just the right gifts, and to make their kids' Christmas extra special. One of them had driven to four different locations of the same store just to find the specific longed-for toy that was a must-have on her son's Christmas list.'

'The tone changed a bit when Julie said, "So, what are you getting your husband?" They both chuckled when they simultaneously quipped, "We know what they want, of course."
This was quickly dismissed as they pondered the necessary and practical gifts they needed to find for their husbands' Christmas.' 

 'Upon further reflection it disturbed them to realize that their husbands' gifts had been mostly an afterthought, eliciting nowhere near the same level of excitement and anticipation of their gift-giving to their children. It was alarmingly clear where their hearts and minds were. They had reveled in the anticipation of their children's reactions to their Christmas creation, but thought little of their husbands' response.' 

 'They determined that their husbands' Christmas gifts would be something that evoked at least as much excitement and eager anticipation as they felt in giving to their children. They knew that what their husband's really wanted and needed the most was their time and attention. The desired gift may not even be tangible, but instead be gifts of Appreciation, Admiration, Attention and Affection.'

My prayer for every wife this season, is that they will honor their husbands, and give a gift of the heart. :-)
