Show Your Mate You Are Thankful They Are in Your Life

In everyday life many of us are so busy. Once you finish day to day activities you come home sit, relax, eat and after which its bed time. How often will we stop and think of that special someone and then let them know the way you cherish them being in your life. That can take a lot more than merely saying, “I Love You.” Sometimes it’s nice to exhibit this to the one you love. Not necessarily always being the main one waiting to determine what you can get and letting your mate go first.

Often after many years of being together we all know our mate has enhanced our way of life in such a way words could never express it. Demonstrate to them you are thankful they are in your life and you were able to experience this ride with them.

It may be as simple as surprisingly buying flowers along with a card and laying it on your mates’ pillow. Maybe that’s something you’ve never done before, however, it’s very simple and yet very thoughtful. You may plan a lovely getaway for your mate or perhaps a nice dinner at home or if it’s affordable to dine out. Try something that is out of the ordinary for you personally, step a little out of your comfort zone. Go out on the limb for this one that has enhanced your life. This shows your mate you actually spent the time and put effort into attempting to really demonstrate to them you love them.

Exactly the same way one can and will complain their mate is not doing something right, you can also sit them down and say I want to talk with you and let them know it is not to complain and simply tell them how thankful you are that they are in your life.

It’s funny the way we are extremely quick to let someone know and make sure they understand what they are doing to annoy us, it would take the same amount of that same time to show someone you are truly grateful to have them in your life. You realize in your heart the way your mate has sometimes caused you to fall again and again in love with them and it is so difficult for ones to show that side of them.

Have you ever felt this:

Because of Love...

My life was sort of empty as if there

was something missing...

My life had its good times but it was


My life had its ups and downs; but there

was a void there...

My life went left and right but something

had to come along and straighten it out...

As I passed through my mind over and over

again; what is it, what can I do...

and finally because of Love I found it all;

You have closed the void, helped me find

what was missing, and straightened me out.

But most of all you have helped make me complete...


For those who have had these feelings, why not show the one you love the way you appreciate them for bringing this to your life. Life is so short, it’s not a manifestation of weakness to exhibit to someone you are thankful they are in your life. That is a precious gift which will always be remembered.

      I couldn't agree with you more. It is so important to tell someone how much they are loved. Try to look for the good in a person, begin with praise and then if need be mention the problem and how it may be solved.

      Great information and sound advice. Voting up and pressing those buttons too.
