“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she’s treated.”
George Bernard Shaw,
Pygmalion & My Fair Lady
The other day, I read a quote by President Gordon B. Hinckley: "I am satisfied that happiness in marriage is not so much a matter of romance as
it is an anxious concern for the comfort and well-being of one’s
companion. Any man who will make his wife’s comfort his first concern
will stay in love with her throughout their lives and through the
eternity yet to come."
I knew that by President Hinckley's standards, I had married one who would stay in love with me for all eternity.
For the innumerable times you have shown anxious concern for my well being, thank you.
For the laughter that rings loud in our home—thank you.
For the many games we have invented together—thank you.
For the intellectual discussions that accompany many a meal in our home—thank you.
For leading us in reading our scriptures and family prayers—thank you.
For the times we slow dance in our living room—thank you.
For the gentle, kind, and meaningful things you do for me—thank you.
For being my best friend, and greatest joy—thank you!
And for always treating me like a lady, even when I feel or behave like a flower girl—thank you.
