The other night, I crawled into bed exhausted as usual. I rolled over and spent some time lamenting over my oppressive "to do list" to my husband. He listened then turned to me and said, "You need to celebrate your successes." What could I say? He was telling me the truth. In fact, I'm guessing he thought that I didn't get his point because he showed me in a very positive way how to be appreciative of my successes. When I arrived home from my Georgia Romance Writer's meeting, he had a gift bag filled with my favorite perfume, a sweet note, and he'd taken the time to "sparkle up" our home by dusting, cleaning, and washing the dishes. He got his point across. I needed to show some gratitude and appreciation.
