Generous Heart

in the generous life

My husband was working through some preparations for a conference that we will run shortly.  Every so often he would ask a question or ask for a helping hand.  Honestly, I was getting a bit peeved that he kept interrupting me at the computer.  Then I made a quick assessment of the situation.  I wasn’t doing anything that was absolutely necessary at the moment.  I could reasonably take a bit of time and be a help.  We really needed to get everything ready and what he was doing was time sensitive.  So, I stopped being grumpy, helped out a bit and now I’m back to the computer with little out of my day.  He’s happier and I’ve helped move things along.

I think sometimes, being generous has a very practical element to it.  It’s about meeting your husband where he is, blessing him with what he needs and wants.  I did have the time to help (if I had been into something important that I really couldn’t break from, he would have understood), my husband liked the company and it helped the work move along.

What does your husband need or want?
