I Want to Hold Your Hand

in the generous life

I had some dental work done today.  It wasn’t really that serious, but for some reason it really unnerved me, so I asked my husband to go and sit with me during the appointment.  He didn’t act impatient.  He didn’t make fun of me or treat me like I was being silly.  He just loved me and took my need at face value.  I felt truly blessed (and the ladies at the office thought he was funny and sweet, he has a lovely sense of humor and told them he was there to keep me from biting folks, I kid you not).

So as a tip idea … take a similar attitude toward your husband.  Not the biting part,   ;-)   the part about respecting your spouse and treating them and their needs with kindness and understanding.  A need is a need is a need.  Judging the value of your spouse’s need is judging your spouse in a way.  How kind it is to value them by valuing their needs (however silly the need may seem to you at the moment).

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Philo

Be generous!  Lori <><
