Recognition Goes A Long Way

On my way home from work this evening my cell phone rang...It was my husband...Nothing unusual...Granted, I had just talked to him about 15 minutes before...but that happens all the time...When I answered, he said "I just wanted to call you back because I wanted to tell you that you are an awesome Mother and a wonderful Wife and I'm so lucky to have.  I know you do a lot for our family, and I know I should help out more than I do...I'm just really lucky to have you."

Sweet right?  Absolutely...But I have to admit, If I didn't know my husband as well as I do...I would have thought something's up...What's he buttering me up for??...lol...I thanked him and told him it was really nice to hear those things...

Sometimes in the day to day of our lives we take for granted the people we love the most...I know he takes me for granted...He's told me...So there are definitely days that I  feel spread thin and unappreciated...I'm really not the type of person that needs a constant pat on the back, but I absolutely need to feel appreciated...It really makes all the work involved in keeping a family on track so much easier...I always try to tell him how much I appreciate him...or thank him for going out of his way to do something to make things easier on us all...I do this because my mom always told us to treat people the way we wanted to be treated...maybe it's finally starting to sink in...lol
