I appreciate the father he is to my children.

I appreciate that he always makes sure we have everything we need and a little more.

I appreciate that he is still by my side loving me even though I tried to destroy that love because I thought I was not worthy.

I appreciate the strength and comfort he brings me.

I appreciate he chose me to share his life with.

I appreciate that I have been given the chance to recognize what I really have instead of concentrating on what I didn't have.

The more I think about why I love him, the more satisfied I feel in my relationship. I think it's because when I'm feeling grateful, I treat him with love and compassion, which makes him feel better about himself and leads him to treat me with love and compassion. In the end, we both win!

Being happy within ourselves is nice, but sharing that happiness is wonderful. I think that is one of the perks about marriage--being able to share yourself the good and the bad with someone.
