One of my favorite movies is The Family Man starring Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni. Cage plays a man who left his college sweetheart to pursue his career. Fifteen years later, he is single, a rich Wall Street tycoon, and loves his life (or so he thinks). After encountering an angel, he gets to shortly live out what his life would have looked like had he chosen to marry the girl he left. Instead of being the king of New York, he begrudgingly becomes a married father of two kids living in New Jersey. As he tries to assimilate into this foreign life, he sees pictures and videos of himself as a natural husband and father. The thing that shocks him the most is how happy he appears. At one point, he even looks at a picture of his happily married self and exclaims, “What are you smiling about?” The beautiful part of the movie is that he gradually becomes the man he sees in that picture.
The man he becomes is one that cherishes his kids, but particularly his wife. Over time, it is clear that something he puts a considerable amount of time and creativity in is celebrating her. He makes her feel special and loved. Celebrating our wives not only makes them feel cared for, but it deepens our love for them. Your heart will be where you invest your time and energy. Do you wonder how to show your wife you love her? Here are 7 creative ways.
