Leave them on his pillow, in his laptop bag, or taped to the remote control to be sure he’ll see it! He may not respond, but at least he’ll know that you see his efforts and you want to acknowledge them.
The added bonus in all of this is that you will benefit from it, too! Research shows that feelings of gratitude have an impact on our emotional well-being (Emmons & McCullough, 2003), and that expressing thanks in general is good for your health! It may seem trivial, but remember that it’s the little things that make a difference in a successful marriage.
By completing this exercise and making your expression of gratitude a regular practice, it’s a quietly effective way to build your husband up and show him how much you love, appreciate, and respect him. It’s likely that he’ll be willing to do the same for you in return, as a result.
BMWK, Can you put these into practice?
