Don't get me wrong, he's not perfect. Sometimes he can be stubborn, forgetful and short tempered. But then, so can I. What is it about relationships that when we first get together we gush all over the place and deem everything they do as wonderful and incredible. Then slowly the golden luster fades and it seems we just take our significant others for granted. Remember when you used to leave notes for each other or just call to say, "I love you?" What happened? When did we stop noticing all the little things?
I have an amazing husband and even as the author of two gratitude books, I don't always tell him how grateful I am for his support, love and attention. So, let's make a commitment. For the next thirty days find something each day that your guy has done or said and acknowledge that gesture by expressing your gratitude. Mix it up a little and leave him a note, text him your appreciation or call him to let him know how much that meant to you.
Did you know that research has proven that being grateful actually raises your happy meter by increasing your serotonin level? I wonder how thirty days of gratitude will affect your relationship... Will you let me know how it goes?

Here's an example of sharing some gratitude for her guy that I came across today on Facebook. Thank you, Becca, for letting us re-post.
Rebecca Straka: I have the best husband in the world. Not only does he do more than enough for us, he's not selfish and helps everyone else and doesn't complain about it. Thank you Ryan, for being such a great man! And for making me smile when I don't want to smile. Times are tough and he goes above and beyond to make it work. I love you--he'll laugh at me for putting this on fb but I had to...
