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!
