Make Your Spouse the Person Of Your Dreams
Whether you are just married or have enjoyed many years with your spouse, strive to see and keep seeing your spouse as the person of your dreams. No couple showed a better example of this than President Gordon B. Hinckley and his wife, Marjorie.
“My children and I were at [Marjorie’s] bedside as she slipped peacefully into eternity. As I held her hand and saw mortal life drain from her fingers, I confess I was overcome. Before I married her, she had been the girl of my dreams, to use the words of a song then popular. She was my dear companion for more than two-thirds of a century, my equal before the Lord, really my superior. And now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams. . . . In our old age my beloved companion said to me quietly one evening, ‘You have always given me wings to fly, and I have loved you for it’” (President Gordon B. Hinckley, “The Women in Our Lives”).
