A good friend who serves in our church's stake presidency (a stake is a geographical organization of wards) recently told The Wretch and me about his meeting with a church authority. This good man said, "Brother, no matter how good a husband you think you are, you aren't." Even more significant, this man got the advice from President and Prophet Thomas S. Monson.
The Wretch made a mistake and told me about this. Of course I will never forget it. More, I will never let HIM forget it. Now, if he does something not too terrible, I can remind him "No matter how good a husband you think you are, you aren't."
What right-thinking woman doesn't love that? What right-thinking woman won't remember it forever and ever? And what right-thinking woman won't remind her mate of it forever and ever?
Not this one. That's for damned sure.
Gem for the day: if your mate does something nice, thank him prettily for it and then remind him of President Monson's counsel.
