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.”
