DH and I found a journal we kept together after his heart surgery. It was a gratitude journal that we would write in each day to help us keep focused on our blessings and not our trials. The common thread through each entry was our gratitude and love for each other. I was moved how often he wrote that he was grateful for my support and encouragement. For me, it was difficult to see him in this weak condition after his surgery. I think the gratitude journal kept me from becoming depressed about our situation. Together, we have rode this roller coaster ride with it's highs and lows. That's the blessing we were there for each other!

    How sweet. I don't think we really know or understand how much we mean to our husbands. I sometimes think they need us almost more then we need them.

    It sounds like a great idea! One that would keep us looking on the good and not the bad in life!
    Thanks for sharing!
