10 compliments your wife needs on the worst day ever
One of these 10 compliments can turn your wife's terrible day around. - photo by Melinda Fox
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. Youre 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 youre my kids mom

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

5. Youre 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.
