For Thanksgiving, Come Write Thanks to Your Beloved (e.g., Thanks for warming up my feet every night.)

Uploaded: Nov 19, 2013
I don't think anyone can be told too much how s/he's appreciated. So in honor of Thanksgiving, a wonderful holiday of family, friends and food, let's give thanks to our partners in this public forum.

Come post a specific thing or two you are thankful for about your beloved. You can decide if it's anonymous, or use your names. Make sure s/he gets to see what you appreciate about him or her.

Here are a couple to start this off:

? Thanks for warming up my feet every night.
? I appreciate that you don't try to "fix it" when I talk to you about a
problem or challenge; just listening is exactly what I need.


We can't do it without you.

Thank you, my beloved, for the $$$ you bring in, so that I can continue to make it to my mani-ped appointments, my esthetician for my facials, my masseuse to ease the stress, (due to having to make these appointments), my housekeepers, nannies, and chef. I love you with all of my heart. <3

I am grateful to Mr. Charles for his eccentricities, humor, and vast amount of knowledge on many subjects. If I have a question on philosophy, religion, history, literature, languages, art, or geography he almost always has the answer. (I fill him in on twerking, the Kardashians, and all manner of obnoxious pop culture.)

Nora, I must need someone to fill me in on pop culture -- I thought the Kardashians were from Star Trek! That brought a bunch of laughter over here . . .
