When was the last time you thanked the man or woman in your life?

I have a wonderful boyfriend that has to be the most patient understanding man in the world. He has been by my side through several surgeries, which were performed at the hospital where his wife died 17 years ago. He has had to overcome deep emotions about going back into that hospital to be with me, but he has done wonderfully. Each time I came out of anesthesia, he has been in my room and has always had a wonderful gift to make me feel better. Today, he made a special trip to town (which is an 80 mile round trip) to pick up my prescription. He is always there for me no matter what. Sunday, in my Easter gifts from him, which were chocolates that I absolutely adore, was an Easter card proclaiming how much he loved me and inside was a fifty dollar bill with a note attached for me to buy myself an Easter hat. He knew how absolutely broke I was, I didn't even have enough money to buy a gallon of gas. Whatever I want to do he is there beside me helping me do it. He is attentive and so sweet, when we go places together he always holds my hand. He put up with the major problems that I had when my daughter and family were staying here for the past nine months. He would come and hold me close and tell me that things would be alright. I am planning a major thank you gift for him, I plan to get him something he wouldn't buy for himself. I can never tell him enough how much I love and appreciate him and wouldn't give him up for anything! I just wondered how often everyone stops and tells the person in their lives how much they love them and appreciate what they do for them. I always make sure that I say that I love him through the day, because you never know what will happen and leaving you wishing that you had at least said "I love you" one last time.

I thanked my hubby a couple of weeks ago for looking after all the business end of our relationship. We both have full time jobs and we have two small businesses. I hate paperwork and red tape and so he handles all that and makes it so I don't have to worry. I was thinking a few weeks back how I just sort of take it for granted. Then I started to feel bad so I told him that I really did appreciate all he does. I think all too often we get comfortable in our relationships and forget the ones that mean the most to us. Thanks for the reminder, I think I'll tell him again tonight.

I thank my husband everyday he deserves it,he is a truckdriver gone away 5 days a week and i know he works hard to support his family,so why wouldn't thank the man i love?You need to show how much you thanks them and love them everyday because you never know when it might end.
