It's not always easy to let someone, even your spouse, lean on you. But that's part of the gig. You promise to be that shoulder to cry on when you say, "I do." So, when your spouse is feeling down or has to face some sort of obstacle or challenge, you must be ready to take action. I know that I personally don't always know what to do when my husband needs comforting, so I gave it some thought and came up with a list of things that would soothe me. Give it a read and the next time that your husband or wife feels like the world is coming to an end, you will know just what to do.
