We all do nice things occassionally for our partners. I would like to know what the nicest thing yours has done this month. I work from home with a part time job. I take care of my daughter 6 days a week while my hubby is at his job.I clean the house and all that entails. Bathrooms laundry, vacuuming , errands you get the picture.So I was pleasantly surprised by my husband this last weekend. We have been married 6 and 1/2 year. And he took me to the jewlery store and bought me my annivesrary band for 5 years of marriage.It wasn't the ring that got me, It was the things he said. How he appreciated the work I do. That I am doing a wonderful job with our daughter. That he couldn't do it all without me. I love that what I do is recognized. And I love him! I hope he can always bring me to such emotion with his words.

that is so sweet, ersmommy1, I do not see much of my husband as he works such awful hours and sleeps most of his hours at home. though he has been putting a sock over my toes when he gets off work and before he goes to work - my leg is in a cast and my toes get so very cold! it is the little things that mean a lot , and that is one thing that seems so little but is so appreciated.

"Julyteen" - if you are a teen as your screename implies, all I can say to you is that young love seems to hurt so bad when it ends. It is as if you feel you won't love again. You will.

My husband treats me pretty special all the time, he's always doing little things that are really sweet. A whole new experience for me! He'll bring me a popsicle (our weekness) and just sweet little things like tuck the covers up around my shoulders when we go to bed. I don't care about 'things', I would much rather have the show of love, and I finally have it.

hey JarHead that is really so tender of him, he must be a very devoted man. my father cherished my mother and often did these same kinds of little things for his bride.

He called me often. because he works abroad. he calls me every now and then as long as he find time. We also chat over the internet when he is out and has no work. With our situation, communication is the best thing we could do.

Hello dear ermommy. I am very happy for you to have such a nice and understanding hubby. Yeah, warm words are much more important to one than any other thing. Anyway it is really very nice of your hubby to have bought you so expensive jewellery to express his great gratitude to you for your hard work in the past few years ever since your marriage. You deserve it, my dear ersmommy.

my wife is a very special woman. She enjoys doing a lot of things for me. Little surprise and sweet nothings. If I am with her, I feel that we are always a fresh couples. She never grew tired of saying i love you, offering me a massage, cooking special dishes, thinking of new activities for us to enjoy... And she do things differently almost everyday... like one day I wke up seeing a message in the ceiling or a breakfast in bed... I bet it shows how much i love my wife. Can't blame me for having a wife as wonderful as her.

She's done this on two occassions actually. I've take a nap on Wednesday evening after I get done waking up rather early to attend classes and what not. She's let me sleep in, and gone to get dinner so we don't have to worry much about not having anything to eat or what not. It's definitely a nice switch. Not having to worry about what is going to happen for dinner.

That is so great! Well, for me just happened last night. He didn't bought me anything but what he told me is really great. He told me that he appreciated everything I have for him and will appreciate the things I will for him. He hugged me tight and cried while saying the words "I love you, I don't want to lose you" while a mellow alternative music playing in the background. I really find it really sweet of him to say that in an unexpected place. I just love him, so sweet and so gentle baby to me. Everytime he went out of the country, he always bought things for me he even forgot to buy something for himself. I just love the way he is taking care of me.

My husband has done lots of nice things this month. We have gone through some tough times in the past 5 years, but now he is really trying. He is making plans for our future. Not only setting up vacations for our family, but therapy and stuff that will benefit us in the long haul. My husband is SO not a planner, so this is big for us. He has brought me roses randomly. He completely planned out our anniversary from morning until night and it was perfect. We have been married 3 years and this was the first one we celebrated. We got matching tattoos that say "New Beginnings" a week ago. I brought up the idea of matching tattoos a long time ago. He researched and picked it out two weeks ago. When I was sick, he took complete control of the care of our daughter. He took care of me too. I do most of the care giving usually, but he did an awesome job. There are many more things, but those are the ones on the top of my head right now.

The nicest thing my husband did for me this month was bring me home a singing frog on Valentines Day. I collect frogs and he put alot of thought into it. It really made me happy.

That's so very sweet of your husband to show his love and appreciation for you. My husband does a lot around the house so I always appreciate his input but I can't say he's done anything extra special this month. He showers me with kisses and affection every single day and I have to remind myself not to take him for granted. We're coming up to our 4th wedding anniversary next month and he's always suggesting ideas for making our home look nicer. He will cook a special meal for me just because he wants to and last weekend he drove us around to a birthday party and 2 weddings and let me have a drink at all of them and didn't once complain that he had to drive, in fact, he said he wanted me to enjoy and even when I was hungover on Sunday (self-inflicted so not really deserving any sympathy) he was sweet as pie to me all day! Gosh, I really am lucky LOL! x

I got a new wedding band for our first anniversary so I know how awesome that feeling is. In the last month hubby surprised me with a potted purple calla lily - same kind we had at our wedding - and dancing lessons (more for him than me, but in the long run I benefit because then we can start going to clubs again). I know I am very luck, hubby does small things like that on a regular basis,shows affection, and compliments me daily. For me the compliments and affection mean more than any amount of money he could spend.
