Be a Generous Receiver

February 9, 2013

in the generous life

♥ ♥ ♥ 5 days to Valentine’s Day! ♥ ♥ ♥

Your husband is probably going to do something for you for Valentine’s Day. He will use his time and energy to do so and he’s truly hoping to please you. He may do a great job, he may miss it by a mile or he may come up with something somewhere in between.

Please be willing to accept his gifts with appreciation (and grace if they are not quite what you expected). He’s the love of your life and he’s reaching out to you in love.

Our relationships are greatly enhanced when we become not only generous givers, but generous receivers as well, people who accept gifts gladly, thankfully, wholeheartedly, with the kind of smile you’ll never forget.  ITakeOffTheMask

I love your blog! I’m associated with a new marriage blog Ramona (the author of the blog) is having a giveaway for Valentine’s Day for people who sign up for her newsletter by the 12th. I thought you might be interested in checking it out.

Thank you for all of your thoughtful and helpful posts!!!

Love the reminder to be a gracious receiver. That’s very hard!

Nope…he doesn’t believe in America or the world telling him when to say I Love You. I’m expecting nothing for Thursday.
