for taking care of everything (bills, cleaning, laundry, dry cleaning, shopping, etc. Nothing earth shattering , but necessary evils of every day living). He said he has never thanked me and wanted to know he did appreciate everything I did.

this was a first and meant so much to me. It started to say it was no big deal, but I stopped and said you are welcome.

it is nice to be appreciated.

That's beautiful. It's good to feel affirmed and acknowledged. I'm glad your H let you know that you are appreciated.

Wonderful post. So nice to have some gratitude offered to you.

It is the small things that add up to the big glad you didn't discount this small act of geniune gratitude.

I am learning the real value of saying "Thank You" and "I forgive you"....rather than the "no big deal" and "it was nothing" route.

Congratulations! This is a solid, positive post.

God is with us all.

He is being observant and thinking of YOU! That's what I am talking about!!! Cheating is so selfish and it's very refreshing when they not only think about you and what you are doing, but TELL you!

That's so great .

I too am learning to accept the gratitude and not discount the apologies. Any time he says he's sorry for something (not A related) I want to say "it's fine" but I realize it's not necessarily fine, and that I do need to hear him say that he's sorry.

It's a process!

Good stuff lonely2009.

And not only did he thank you but he said, "I have never thanked you..." Acknowledging past poor behaviour. I just see that as him shining a bright light on himself.
