Good morning, Dear Readers! Today is my seventeenth wedding anniversary!
I thought in honor of that, I’d take a moment to remind you today to appreciate the special person you married. It’s so easy, especially after many years together, to take each other for granted, but that’s not good for the relationship at all. It’s depressing to feel unappreciated. Do you want your spouse to feel that way??
Take a moment to think about what you appreciate about your husband or wife today. A kind heart? A gentle nature? The love he or she shows your children (or furbabies)? Is he/she a good provider? Do you share similar interests? Think about this for a few minutes & come up with several things. Then make sure you tell your spouse what you appreciate about him or her.
For my husband, I’m glad we’re still together. We had many hard years, dealing with some potentially marriage ending problems, such as my problems with his family. God helped us both to change & our marriage to survive. I appreciate the fact we share a great friendship. We can have a lot of fun together just hanging out, playing video games or going to a car show. We also share a very warped sense of humor. We both appreciate silly movies like “Airplane!” & quote it on a regular basis during conversation. I love the fact he taught me so much about cars & we share an appreciation for the same type of classic cars. He tolerates my quirks (& they are vast..lol) which I really appreciate since so few people do. I am grateful he doesn’t judge or criticize things about me that many other people are quick to judge, like how I manage my C-PTSD & ongoing problems I have from the carbon monoxide poisoning & concussion. I also appreciate him taking care of me on the days when C-PTSD or health problems flare up. He’s a good man & I’m blessed to be married to him.
