What are things that anyone has done to show how much they appreciate those people that have stuck with us through thick and thin to show how much we care that they are still here.

Personally I have distanced many people, maybe it hurts to much to see me like this, maybe they feel so helpless.

What has someone done that surprised you to make your day better?

Lets dwell on some special things this morning?

Oh, I acquired my fiances favorite new game, that all his old time geek buddies have been playing without him so he can "get away" for a little while.
He just lets me cry, no questions, Why Why.

Last night my husband of 37 years walked to my recliner with a hot mug of tea. It tasted so good.

Every morning last week I was awakened by multiple kisses . It was him. A nice way to wake up.

I cook his favorite suppers and clean up the dirty dishes the next morning. I pack his lunch everyday for him.

I have to be very careful around my hubby. If I even hint to something that I would like to have, he goes and gets it, whether it be the heating pad or a cappaccino from 7-11. Why would this be a problem? Because he always does this and I cannot do the same for him. I try but I know the scales are not balanced. He says that as long as I am happy, he is happy. I love him!

My husband works soooooo hard on one and a "half" jobs o try to make enough money for the family. He has never complained that I cant work anymore, in fact he says he never had the expectation that I would hold a job.
He doesn't complain about the never-ending drain of money that is my doctor appointments and the medication I have to take. (He does, though, complain when I go to the store afterwards.)
He doesn't hold it against me that when he gets home he cleans up the house some when I just can't that day. (Lots of days)
Right now I am in such a flair, so much pain. I came in from the doctor and layed down on the couch. After a while he got me my hot pads, meds and more pillows. He It pain gel on my ankles and toes even though He's allergic to it.
He has a cold and I have a flair, but he got out of bed so I could have it today. He made dinner last night since the stairs were too much to climb for me.
He really is a great guy. We've been married for 14 years since January first.

My husband cooks delicious dinners for us all the time AND he waxes our hard wood floors(the whole house0-it takes him all day, moving furniture etc.

I couldn't do it without him and i think I'll go kiss him and thank him right now!!

Thanks for reminding me

I know I sometimes get so caught up in trying to fight the pain, deep breathing, whatever I think might help.
Last night it was just a gentle rub across my back for so long, I have no idea the time. Wonderful examples from everyone. Thank you for sharing them.
