Have you ever taken a moment to think about the people in your life that you never give enough credit to?

Delilah explains that many people don't take the time to give their appreciation toward people who are always giving their all to others. A listener of Delilah tells his story of his appreciation and credit toward his wife.

Have you ever sat back and suddenly it dawns on you there is someone in your life who doesn’t get nearly enough credit for all the love and attention they give to you or other people around you? I have. It took me actually sitting long enough to realize I need to slow down and stop taking that person for granted. Here is someone else who knows exactly what I’m talking about…

My name is Kevin and I have been married to a wonderful woman for almost 29 years. I really love her; she is my rock and foundation. The problem is that it has taken me 29 years to realize it!

I am so busy that my wife has pretty much been a single mom since we were married. I am a construction worker and am on the road most of the time. My wife, Lisa, has raised our four children almost alone. She has helped others through drug and alcohol problems, and helped couples on the verge of divorce. She has a great women's ministry.

I guess what I am saying is that I do not give her the respect and honor she is worthy of! Even with everything she has on her plate she still has time to be a good partner to me with no thought to herself. I love her very much and God has truly blessed me.

So, Husbands: Love your wives, unconditionally, and don't wait as long as I did to tell her. Appreciate the gift God has given you!

Thank you, Kevin

Is there someone in your life today who deserves more time and credit from you? Maybe it’s not a person in your home, but perhaps it’s a friend or another relative. Don’t become so busy you take for granted the special people placed in your life; they are the ones who make this journey a little easier on you. Just a thought.
