Do you have a significant other or great friend who is a large part of your life? How do you make this person feel appreciated and special? Do you tell them? Maybe you like to give cards or gifts without any occasion. Do you go to lunch together? What's your style?

I think many of us enjoy sending heartwarming emails to our friends. It reminds them that we care enough to take the time to share something with them. But as far as hubby goes, I spoil him rotten. I give of my time and of me. I will fix him special meals. Sometimes I'll buy him a small gift. I love to leave treats on his keyboard at night so he finds it in the morning ~ or put a small treat or love note in his lunch bag. I'm a hopeless romantic...someone has to be in this family.

What kinds of things to you like to do for a spouse or best friend?

I like to send my hubby random e-cards or notes. I like to buy him something special when I go to the grocery store. I always try to remember to tell him how much I appreciate him and all the things he does to help me out.
I also like to buy my mom her favorite chocolates every now and then to let her know how much she means to me. I have a great mom, and she isn't appreciated nearly as much as she deserves, so I try to let her know how much I love and appreciate her.
I like doing special things for the people that matter to me. It makes me feel good to do something for someone else, even if it is something small.

Hubby and I both use to hate texting but we have started over the past year texting each other little sayings during the work day.

I tell my husband, family and friends that I love them but believe that my actions
should define my love. Taking time to make a special meal that my husband enjoys,
taking an interest in his work, his golf and tennis, thanking him for who he is and all
he does.  Mainly I stay connected with what is going on in my family and friends lives,
let them know that I care and that I'm there for them.
Hugs, Robin

Just being there is the most important thing, I guess, for anyone I care about - sharing - and listening. My husband does appreciate the littlest things, not necessarily the things I can relate to, but then, it's not for me to say - hot dogs and beans! Weird candy that no one else likes! A new pen! (He doesn't care what color couch I pick out, but his pens - that's a different story.) He is always there for me, and he's pretty darn easy to please. I have no complaints!
