This week we challenge you to remember the little things that really aren’t so little…manners.

When you ask your spouse to do something for you, say please.

It’s only one extra word but a powerful one, one that eliminates the control in the relationship.

When your spouse does something for you, say thank you.  Acknowledge the action and the fact that it has made your life easier.

When you hear the words “thank you” say you’re welcome.  Marriage is a two way street and so is communication.  When you are thanked, reciprocate and say you’re welcome.

We cannot take our spouses or our marriages for granted.  Everyone wants to feel appreciated and these three simple phrases, please, thank you, and you’re welcome, go a long way to making our marriages a place where both people feel cherished.

Show your spouse how much you appreciate them.

How do you acknowledge what your spouse does for you?  What do you say (or do) to show your appreciation?
