Without Christmas or gift giving, what have you done lately to show your spouse how important they are in your life? Breakfast in bed? Foot rubs? A special date with your spouse? What have you done that lets them know how much you care? My husband is one of the most important things in my life. He gets up early every morning to brave whatever weather might be outside. He gets dressed and goes to a job he wishes he didn't have to do, works with people whom he wishes he didn't have to deal with and has to deal with the public. I know what he has to put up with. It's his way of telling me how much he loves me. I try to find ways to let him know how much I appreciate his hard work. It really pays off too. What have you done for your spouse to let them know how much you care?

You know i will admit i have not done anything lately to let my honey know how much i love him and how important he is to me. i think we get into a rut a daily grind of life and children and work, that we forget to let those we love how special we think that are and how important they are to our lives. thanks for reminding me to let him know that. oh hell let me go write it down before i forget!!!! LOL

Put it on the list...... Just one more thing to remind us to do, as if we weren't doing enough already. My daddy always told me, "There's always one more thing to do". I think he was right.

Treat them with respect all the time and never raise your voice. If you are looking to go above and beeond, hire a babysitter and go out for dinner and a movie, just the 2 of you

That's a good one. Me and mine go out on special dates frequently. Sometimes I call him at work and tell him to meet me someplace after work. I usually show up a few minutes early. He comes in and acts like he's some big stud coming in to pick up a stranger. It sometimes sets people on edge if they don't know we've been married for a thousand years.

This is a good question. And one that I didn't have an answer to. So I burst in on my husband while he was showering, to ask him.He says I always love him. He has said before that it's the running of the house, things he couldn't do without me. Previously, I've sent him flowers to the office, just because. Or bought him a nice bottle of merlot to go with dinner. Or just kept everyone quiet so he can get a few minutes(sometimes an hour) of extra sleep. It's the everyday just because"Hey you mean alot to me" little things that add up.
