Quote from Elisabeth Elliot

"A wife, if she is very generous, may allow that her husband lives up to eighty percent of her expectations. There is always the other twenty percent that she would like to change, and she may chip away at it for the whole of their married life without reducing it by very much. She may, on the other hand, simply decide to enjoy the eighty percent, and both of them will be happy."

~Elisabeth Elliot, as quoted in Feminine Appeal

Helpful Tip Tuesday: Bring Out the Best in People

"Six Ways to Bring Out the Best in People

1.  Keep courtesy and consideration for others foremost in your mind, at home and away.

2.  Try to have fun without trying to be funny.

3.  While you can't control what happens to you, you can control how you react. Make good manners an automatic reaction.

4.  Seek individual opportunities to offer a genuine compliment.

5.  Remember that sincerity, optimism, and enthusiasm are more welcome than sarcasm, pessimism, and laziness.

6.  Laugh with others, never at them."

~taken from Wooden by John Wooden with Steve Jamison
