Today I ran across this article, which documents studies that support the idea that an “attitude of gratitude” is good for us. The studies found that those who daily wrote down what they were thankful for feel better, were happier, and had better sleep.
Certainly it seems like a good idea to give this a try, we have nothing to lose and plenty to gain. But let me suggest a spin on this concept – each day as you list what you are thankful for, but sure to include several ways in which you are thankful for your bride. If you do this regularly, I suspect you will start to feel better about her, and that can only help both of you.
