Day 237, August 8

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.
