~Dare 9~ Love makes good impressions

Today's lesson might seem small and insignificant at first glance but isn't it the small things that make the biggest difference? Think about how you greet your spouse throughout the day. Are you happy to see him/her? Or do you get irritated/annoyed at times? We know how we feel right away if someone that greets us appears hurried or irritated. At a restaurant we might even complain to the manager if our waiter seems to have no interest in us and is rude from the very beginning. In a discussion the opening words can set the tone for the whole debate.

So why do we forget to greet our partner in a loving way not just in words but in countenance as well? A facial expression can easily ruin what you are expressing with your words just like a hug can make a person feel much more appreciated and set them up for a wonderful rest of the day by simply making them feel better about themselves.

Oftentimes we don't even realize the disconnection between our words and our outward expressions. So today make a special effort in making sure that your partner not only hears but also sees and feels that you are glad that they are in your life.
