      I love this idea.... I've read the post "Why I'm doing this" too.. and I decided to start doing the same thing for my wife! Thank you SO MUCH for this.... my wife and I have been going through some problems, and this sounds like a GREAT idea to focus on her and tell her that I love her - A THOUSAND TIMES!

    Thanks for chiming in :)

    I really promote conversation here, and I only ask that you be considerate of others feelings, and remember that tone doesn't always translate well over type. An emoticon can work wonders! ;)
