You Are More Important

February 24, 2010

in the generous life

The other night my husband was scheduled to pick someone up from the airport.  He asked me to go along.  (nice couple time, sounds good, right?)  We-e-e-ell, I’d kind of been looking forward to a little quiet time with a good book (I am an introvert and I need that quiet, alone time to keep me balanced).  The kicker was that he really wanted my company and my going would make the conversation go more easily with the person he was picking up.

I ended up going with him and telling him that he was far more important than any book.  I did enjoy my time with him (not so much the pick up), and I was happy with my decision because he is extremely important to me and I want him to know that.

In the scope of life, does your husband know that he is important to you?  If not, what would it take to show him that he is?

Every single ancient wisdom and religion will tell you the same thing – don’t live entirely for yourself, live for other people.  Don’t get stuck inside your own ego, because it will become a prison in no time flat.  Barbara Ward
