    Loved Ones

    Dear Teachers,

    A. We’re all so guilty of taking our loved ones for granted. We just concentrate on their imperfections instead of appreciating their good qualities.
    - What does “take our loved ones for granted” mean?

    B. Everytime that I see you, you bring me out in the sun.
    - "you bring me out in the sun” means “you make me happy”, correct?

    Thanks a million

    Re: Loved Ones

    1.If you take something for granted, you do not even think about it because you believe it will always be available or exactly the same:
    I took it for granted that I would find the perfect job.
    It's easy to take your kids for granted.

    2.I think so
