Just a Minute

in the generous life

Do you often find yourself putting off your husband’s requests and invitations with “just a minute,” “not right now” or “wait until I finish [whatever]” ?  Certainly this is reasonable sometimes, but if you do it too often it will communicate to him that he has less value to you than all those things that you put ahead of him.

Take the time to think through what would be so important that you need to ask others to wait.  What things are not that big of a deal?  Tuck it in your head to break away easily and go with the flow when you can.  Shared life with others is so precious.  Don’t miss out just because you haven’t thought it through.

The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won’t wait while you do the work. Author Unknown
