I love a blog called Women Living Well. Have you heard of it? I am going to take their four week marriage challenge. This first week is about praising your husband. I know I take a lot of what Bob does for granted. In the past week he cooked dinner, took my car to get the oil changed and, while he had my car he washed it and filled it with gas, played the drums for my first graders in front of our Board of Education, warmed my car up in the morning and made me a healthy lunch for school. Sure, I said thanks and gave him a hug and a kiss, but real gratitude, the kind that spills over into your eyes, has been lacking.
So I am taking the challenge, to let Bob know how much I appreciate those small acts of love and kindness. I hope he will forever know the depths of my gratitude, in sickness and in health, for as long as we both shall live.
