He has taken it on as his full-time chore. I am sure now to thank him several times a week and tell him how happy it makes me. Showing a little appreciation has paid off big time in this respect, but that’s not why I do it. I thank him because it is the courteous thing to do. I treat him with respect and appreciation, and he treats me like he’s my man. If only more couples would take the time to thank each other for the little things – it has made a difference in my marriage, and I’m sure it would have a similar effect in others.
Remember, all of you can send me “letters” too – by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family – it’s free – and tell us of your experiences.
