Start at the very beginning... the very best place to start....
The very first thing that my husband did for me, literally the first words he spoke directly to me were to compliment my appearance. I've never had a good self-image (to put it mildly) and he's always made me feel pretty - in a very real, very practical, very earthy way.
He took this girl:
|Gotta love the 80s... there were two choices for glasses for girls. Bad, and worse. I'm about 12/13 here.|
And turned her into this girl:
|15, not quite 16 here. Why I forgot to take my retainer off for the picture... :p But you get the idea.|
So. Day 1: I am grateful that my husband makes me feel beautiful. Being told that I'm beautiful makes me want to work harder at being beautiful, so that I can keep making him smile.
