What does it mean to take things for granted?

It means that you do not appreciate what is being done. For

example; If your wife cleaned the house every day when you first

got married and you were filled with this wonderful sense of "wow

she is such a wonderful woman"; then that would be appreciation. If

after a few years you stopped taking notice of this hard work she

was doing and were no longer filled with that sense of

appreciation, then you may then begin taking her "for granted".
