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 think i'm quite fortunate, when i became ill i explained the situation to all the people close to me. The response has made me truely appreciate them in my life. My best friend and i used to go out once a month for a meal and a girly gossip, but as that now exhausts me she has changed things so that once a month she invites me over a meal and gossip. She is very understanding and a true friend if i can only manage to stay for 30minutes before my pain becomes so intense i need to go home she is conmpletely fine with that and text messages me regularly to see how i am. My boyfriend also is wonderful and looks after me totally.
I believe that the tough times we have in life shows us who is a true friend to us and who will always be there to help and support us. I do whatever i can to thank them. I make jewellery and so i make things for my best friend as a thank you and she loves it. It's only something small but it's personalised and that makes it more special.

I'm like you Chutz, I show my love by cooking special meals for my husband.  My best friend is amazing, she is there for me and knows by the sound of my voice or look on my face what kind of day I'm having.  She is supportive and understanding.  I can't say that I do anything special for her other then be there for her with my ears and heart just like she is for me!

We've been in a financial bind for several years so words and actions have become my gifts to the people I love!  Its been a most growing time of my life to be honest!

I don't do a lot for my husband.  I do buy him a birthday gift on his birthday.  I tell him I love him every day.  We also have a really good friend that does so much for us.  He has taken me to pick up pain med scripts twice in the last two weeks.  He and his son are really precious to us.  We do for them when we can.  My husband cooks our meals and cleans the house.  I'm so blessed.
