Grains of Sand

A healthy marriage is a safe haven where we can relax and 
recuperate from the tensions of everyday life. We need to 
hear positive things from our mate. Just as I gathered 
together some friends to tell me what not to say to a spouse, 
they also suggested what they would like to hear from a spouse.

"Good Job!" 
"You are wonderful." 
"You look gorgeous today." 
"I don't feel complete without you." 
"I appreciate all the things you have done for me." 
"You come first in my life, before kids, career, 
friends, anything." 
"I am glad I married you." 
"You are the best friend I have." 
"If I had to do it over again, I'd still marry you." 
"I wanted you today." 
"I missed you today." 
"I could not get you out of my mind today." 
"It is nice to wake up next to you." 
"I will always love you." 
"I love to watch your eyes when you are smiling." 
"As always, you look good today." 
"I trust you." 
"I can always count on you." 
"You make me feel good." 
"I am so proud to be married to you." 
"I am sorry." 
"I was wrong." 
"What would you like?" 
"What is on your mind?" 
"Let me just listen." 
"You are so special." 
"I can't imagine my life apart from you." 
"I wish I were a better partner." 
"What can I do to help?" 
"Pray for me." 
"I am praying for you today." 
"I prize every moment we spend together." 
"Thank you for loving me." 
"Thank you for accepting me." 
"Thank you for being my partner." 
"You make each day brighter."
