Appreciation List

You know, there is a little tool that marriage and family therapists have in their tool bag that seems so simple, yet when we rely on it, we know it’s going to make a difference. It’s just the activity of making a list of the strengths and the things you love about your spouse. Yeah, it seems like how could that make any difference, but when you sit down and do that, no matter your age or your stage of your relationship, you begin to cultivate a new sense of appreciation for her. And that’s what it is. You take each other for granted in marriage. It reminds you of the things that are really exceptional about your spouse. Friend, think about this in your own relationship. Try it tonight. Make a list of the things you appreciate about each other and watch how that draws you closer together.
