This is for the all the married sisters out there. This past Sunday we had the best Relief Society meeting. It was about strengthening the marriage by doing all you can to please your worthy priesthood holder. I just have to share with you what we discussed.
Now, some of you may be thinking that your marriage is not what it used to be, or that there is no hope of rekindling that fire that the 2 of you used to enjoy. Sisters, if you want your marriage to change, you have to take things into your own hands. Simply by doing little things, you can reap big rewards. Here are a few examples of what you can do to make your husband more comfortable and happy, and this will translate into a blissful home and marriage:
1: While he is in the shower, run and place his towel in the dryer to get it nice and warm for him.
2: Place little sunbeam messages in hidden places that he will uncover. I like to unroll the toilet paper and write notes to my man there. Use a seperate roll of toilet paper if necessary to assure he gets the message.
3: When he gets home from a long hard day at work, take off his shoes and give him a foot rub. This could lead to even better things, like a bigger allowance.
4: Make sure he always has clean underwear, folded and sorted in his drawer.
5: Cook his favorite meal at least once a week. If he is late for work, keep it warm for him in the oven and don't eat until he sits down to his meal so he doesn't have to eat alone.
6: Always freshen up right before he comes home so you look your best for him. Make sure your dress is pressed and clean. Change dresses if you need to.
7: Wear his favorite perfume. Put it on right before he walks in the door.
8: Place the sports page by his plate when he comes for breakfast. Only ham and eggs will do for my man.
9: Make sure the kids are playing in the backyard when he comes home so they don't disturb him as he unwinds.
10: Mark on your calendar the days that his favorite sports team plays, and have it turned on waiting for him. My man can't get enough of sports.
Now, there a few excellent suggestions to make your marriage better. If any of you sisters have any great suggestions to add to this list, please feel free to add them here so we can all enjoy them. And if any of you brothers have a suggestion that us wives don't readily see, please tell us how we can make your life easier.
After all, it is the man who carrys all the responsibility for the family. He holds the priesthood, and you can't get into the celestial kingdom without him, so it is in your best interest to make his life as easy as possible.
Let me know how this works.
