Recipe For A Happy Marriage

I've been so blessed to find someone who puts up with my faults and imperfections, loves me unconditionally and makes me laugh. I don't know where I came across this recipe, but I definitely need to sharpen my "cooking" skills! I thought this would be fun to share on Valentines. Love you babe!

Recipe For A Happy Marriage

1 cup consideration
1 cup courtesy
2 cups flattery carefully concealed
1 gallon faith and trust in each other
2 cupfuls of praise
1 small pinch of in-laws
1 reasonable budget, a generous dash of cooperation
3 tsp pure extract of "I'm sorry"
1 cup contentment
1 cup confidence
1 large or several small hobbies
1 cup blindness to others faults

Flavor with frequent portions of recreation and a dash of happy memories. Stir well and remove any specks of jealousy, temper or criticism. Sweeten well with generous portions of love and keep warm with a steady flame of romance! Never serve with a cold shoulder. Enjoy!

"An ideal marriage is a true partnership between two imperfect people, each striving to compliment the other, to keep the commandments and to do the will of the Lord."
Russell M. Nelson
