A great day. I bought a new blue outfit and I felt like it looked good. I could hardly wait to have my husband see me in my new clothes. Getting noticed by your special person can become a challenge after more than 50 years together.
I finished dressing, took a last look in the mirror and felt excited as I walked down the stairs to where he stood waiting. He barely glanced at me and turned to go.
I stopped and said, “You didn’t notice.” He frowned. “What?” “Don’t you like it?” He looked at me. “Oh. It’s nice.”
To say I felt let-down is an understatement. When we arrived at our destination three or four people told me how nice I looked. Sometimes you have to take affirmation wherever you can get it. You may even have to be willing to give it to yourself. Don’t sweat the small stuff. He doesn’t always have other things on his mind.
