Created to be his Helpmeet chapter 2, A Merry Heart

Lets have a merry heart, 
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
I love the reminder in this chapter about smiling. Why would emphasis even need to be placed on it? Well, lets think about when you and your husband first met, when you first starting dating each other, I bet you were all smiles, laughter and giggles. Now fast-forward to the present, are you still smiling or are you pitiful looking, bitter, angry and/or sickly looking? Our husbands are attracted to that smile, that giddiness you once had over him. Even as your looks start to change and go downhill, your smile can make the difference in your husbands attraction to you. Have you ever seen couples where the woman looks as if she may have been struck with an ugly stick, she's frumpy, tired looking, and has not aged gracefully, but her husband still adores her? You wonder what her husband sees in her. How can he possibly seem so in love with her still? It could be that she has a merry/joyful heart. Men are attracted to a womans smile, so much so that he can overlook her physical imperfections (which we all have) and love her like no other. I'm not saying let yourself go because of course our husbands appreciate our physical beauty but a smile and a sweet spirit can do wonders. Question to ponder: What can I do today to make my husband smile?
