Last Sunday I saw one of my friends at church talking to one of the senior citizens who I adore. I noticed how nice my girlfriend looked in a beautiful brown dress, shoes, purse and jewelry to match. She was well put together. I said you look so nice! She said thank you, I come over here to talk to Ms. ________ just to get a compliment because I don’t get any compliments at home.
It’s a hurting feeling to be married and your spouse doesn’t pay you any attention. I know when I get my hair done differently or wear something different, I love when my husband compliments me. I think sometimes we take each other for granted and feel like our spouse already knows how we feel, but let’s put a stop to this! Give daily attention to your spouse so that they are not starving to get it from someone else.
TIPS ON PAYING ATTENTION
Take a good look at your spouse ever day. Give a compliment when a compliment is due. Acknowledge each other when you are leaving and entering the home. Find out what kind of day your spouse has had. Notice a new outfit, hair style/cut, etc. Always remember, if you don’t want to give attention, somebody else will. “Paying attention to your mate and your marriage can save you from having to pay later.”
It is so easy to take each other for granted. Thank you for the reminder!
