For the record, if you don’t know the origins of my ‘Gratitude’ posts, they came about for two reasons.
- 1. I was feeling distant in our relationship and I was looking for a way to come closer to her again.
- 2. I wanted to get her an awesome 15 year anniversary gift. So I purchased a cute journal and started to record all the things I am grateful for. Each of my ‘Gratitude’ posts are hand written in the journal regularly so she can check them out as she wants. I plan to do this until the day I die.
These posts have been very helpful in growing my relationship with Anna. No matter how mad, frustrated, or upset I could be at her, there is still something she does that I can be grateful for. I try to find those things especially when I am upset; it keeps me grounded and reminds me of my love for her.
