10 compliments your wife needs on the worst day ever

One of these 10 compliments can turn your wife's terrible day around.
  • It's been one of those days. A co-worker made some insensitive comments, one of the kids came home crying, and the dog pooped on the carpet (twice). She has just about had it.

  • Sometimes there's not much you can do to fix a rotten day. But other times, you can do a lot of healing with a much-needed compliment. This is a list of things your wife needs to hear when everything else about the day is terrible.

  • 1. I'll never get used to your smile

  • You're not only admiring her smile but you're telling her that she keeps sweeping you off your feet again and again.

  • 2. You're everything I need

  • A bad day can make her feel inadequate pretty quickly. Let her know that she's enough for you.

  • 3. That looks good on you

  • It may sound like you're just complimenting her jeans but by telling her they look good on her she'll hear you say that she's beautiful for making them look so good.

  • 4. I love that you're my kids' mom

  • Being a mom is hard. Let her know that you appreciate her specifically for what she does for them.

  • 5. You're the best decision I ever made

  • Make sure she knows that no matter what, you would have married her all over again.

  • 6. You make me a better person

  • Tell her that even if she feels like she's not making a difference, she's making a difference in your life.

  • 7. My family/friends like spending time with you

  • It will make her feel good to know that people you're close to also value her and your relationship.

  • 8. I value your opinion

  • Valuing her opinion shows that you respect her and rely on her advice.

  • 9. You're so smart

  • Sometimes we forget how far that compliment can go. Maybe she's an excellent essayist, scripture scholar, or problem-solver. Let her know you value her mind.

  • 10. I love talking to you

  • Communication is usually pretty important to women. She'll appreciate that you like having conversations with her.
