How do you see your spouse?
I recently learned that women forget. She must hear the wedding vow eight times a day. And your husband nine times. Men forget even faster.
Compliments have the power to change lives. Compliment your partner with a text message or face to face.
Compliment your spouse when others can hear it too. That is even more powerful because it makes your partner feel prouder and more special. Social media is a powerful tool for that, use it. Post a picture occasionally, write some nice words about him/her and post it.
Public adoration or expression of compliments should not be limited to only once in a year special days or occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. With every simple act of compliment you reap a million in benefits…your love tank never dries. When in doubt, look out Proverbs 18:21.

One day we all will get the chance to tell our stories and be a source of hope and inspiration to many.
We will tell them about how rough the road was and that not all happy endings had a happy start. We will tell them what kept us going in the face of adversity and how our many adversities prepared us and shaped us into who we have become and how in solemn reflection we would wish we never had it any other way.
We will tell them how their perceptions and presumptions of our today are flawed by them not knowing of our yesteryears. We will tell them how much more they will see us in a different light and come to appreciate us if only they will be patient enough to read the whole book and not just the summary of our lives.
Till then, we bear no greater agony than the scattered misrepresentations they have given our lives…our untold stories!
