by Wilferd A. Peterson (short, popular version)
In the art of marriage the little things are the big things...
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once each day.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is being the right partner.
