I am the first to admit that I sometimes take my husband for granted. I forget the good things he has done for me and why I fell in love with him in the first place. I get so caught up in everyday tasks and whatever he has done to annoy me (every spouse annoys the other sometime) that I forget to say, "I love you." I forget to kiss him. I forget about the good times. And I start to stew in my own anger or disillusion. This is my fault and not my spouse's. We are responsible for our own happiness, after all. Most importantly, I forget to show my appreciation for my husband's love and support. So, in honor of this error that I commit, I wrote a story on how to avoid taking your spouse for granted. I think you'll be grateful for the suggestions, and I know your spouse will be. So, remember to dote on your spouse a little - at least do it tonight. I find that once I get started, the loving keeps comin'.
