It's the little things......

Justin Timberlake was a big winner last night at the People's Choice Awards wining for best new album (20/20 Experience), and best R&B artist. The last few times he's won at these awards shows, he's gotten flak for not thanking his wife Jessica Biel. That, of course, gets the rumor mill churning that there is trouble in paradise (again), and they are splitting up. Well, last night, he redeemed himself.
After thanking the PEOPLE, his parents, and even Ellen Degeneres for her cooking-baking skills, Justin, did in fact, take a moment to thank his other (some might argue, better) half. He went on to say that he's especially grateful for all she's taught him....like putting the dishes in the dishwasher, and followed it with, "you're welcome, fellas." And you know what? He has a point. It's always the 'little' things that are at the root of most marital discourse. Think about it? What was the last arguement you had with your significant other? What was it about? Something trivial, right?
And if you dig real deep, you'll find most of your squabbles are always about something ridiculous. So, today, take a page out of Justin Timberlakes' life and remember the little things that make your s/o happy. You might think they are silly and inconsquential, but they add up to a lot. Namely, courtesy, appreciation, and the big one, that they were ACTUALLY LISTENING TO YOU. Thanks, Justin.
