After you’ve eaten some or all of the slices of this cake, this is what you have left of your marriage
Not much is it? ……. your marriage may be able to be saved though, but you’d better start baking!!!!
Go back to the cake you had in the beginning and start appreciating it!!!
Leave the cake as it is, don’t eat it but add to the decorations,
Earn trust back by being honest,
Show adoration and respect,
Make them feel valuable,
Tell your partner how beautiful she or he is,
Tell them how precious they are to you,
Admit the truth, own up to your wrong doings and more than that, tell them you know what it did to them.
Help your partner in everything you can.
Keep your mouth shut sometimes and open it when you should.
Be kind and considerate.
Go out of your way once in a while to please,
Listen, listen listen,
Talk talk talk.
Treat them as you did when you met them, even if you have to fake it for a while!!!
You won’t get anything if you don’t put anything in it!!!
Yeah, marriage is like a piece of cake so savour it as much as you can or you’ll find yourself facing nothing but crumbs and sometimes crumbs can’t be made back into a cake and it’s just not the same. Turn things around before it is too late.
Just a thought…. maybe that’s why we have wedding cakes at weddings… lol
Have a beautiful “piece of cake” day!!! xox
