Remembered an observation from Bachelor #23.
When I go on the meet-and-greet dates from online contacts, I ask all the uncomfortable questions. Get it out there and let's see how it goes. Mind you, I know I am getting a one-sided story.
Anywho, I asked Bachelor #23 why he thought his marriage failed and what he wanted out of future relationships.
"Appreciation," he revealed.
Tell me more, I urge.
Bachelor #23 said he gave and gave but his best and consistent care wasn't appreciated and eventually not even acknowledged by his ex-wife. While he elaborated, my mind wandered to past relationships and I understood exactly what he meant.
It's nice to be appreciated. It feels good.
My wish for you today:
I am hoping you are being appreciated and aware enough to know your blessings.
