So I haven’t been married for very long. It’s been about half a year since my husband and I said our I Do’s. Some say that lasting marriages are becoming a rarity over the years, like the giant panda, but I have seen evidence in my life that has proved otherwise. My parents and my husband’s parents have been together in a loving marriage for more than 28 years. Although my grandparents are from another time, they have been together for more than 60 years. And they still hold hands and tell each other “I love you.” I remember from a few years ago, even at their ripened age, my grandpa wrote my grandmother a poem and gave her a rose as an anniversary gift. Perhaps showing genuine appreciation is the key to maintaining a caring relationship.
Weed Killer aka Anniversary Gift
In this fast pace modern lifestyle, we might take each other for granted at times and forget to show appreciation. When we are consumed in the everyday grind, maybe we forget to stop for a second and really show the special people in our lives how much we appreciate them. Anniversaries, whether it be a wedding, business anniversaries, or cultural milestones, I believe that it is important to take time to celebrate these occasions. Living a married life, you can sometimes expect the other person to always be there and love you no matter what, and complacency is a dangerous weed that can grow in the corner of the house. So put on some gardening gloves and pull that weed out with a perfect anniversary gift. Like a garden, relationships take some work to maintain and that’s okay!
A Thoughtful Anniversary Gift
Gift giving is a ritual that has been here since the beginning and is a gesture that is an expression of your appreciation of another. Even penguins are known to give each other gifts. When a male penguin finds a special mate, he will hunt the beach for the perfect pebble to give to his love. If the female penguin accepts the gift, they are together for life. Taking some time to write a poem or create a piece of art is the same type of gesture that can make the perfect anniversary gift. With our canvas customizer, you can turn your poem, artwork, or photograph into canvas wall art. Taking the time and designing the perfect canvas is just as thoughtful as picking out the perfect pebble.
Much Love and Thanks!
