A Little Gratitude Goes A Long Way.

Yesterday, my husband bought me lunch. 

I told him, “Thank you for lunch, babe.”

It wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for Kris to buy me lunch.  And, it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for me to thank him.  I just think it’s important to always verbalize my gratitude to him. 

Whether he is taking the trash to the curb, washing Anna’s hair, or flying a trip to provide for our family, I want him to know I’m thankful. 

So, I tell him. 

And, an added bonus?  It keeps our hearts soft toward one another.

  1. I love this post, I know it’s simple, but this has been such a powerful tool in my marriage! To say thank you, even for the little all the time things, makes me grateful as I say it. And on the opposite end, when Matt says thank you, it shows me that he saw what I did, appreciated it, took the time to tell me. I love THANK YOU!

    I love this.

    I always thank Craig for the stuff he does. For pretty much the same reasons. To me gratitude to your spouse falls under the “Cherish” category. And I do so Love, Honor and Cherish my husband!!
