Couple Kindness

March 17, 2010

in the generous life

My husband and I ate at a local buffet. We were there in the afternoon when there tends to be a large number of elderly folks.  While we were eating, we kept noticing the couple at the next table.  At first I couldn’t even tell why they stood out, but the more I watched them (as discreetly as I could), I realized that they were treating each other with great kindness and deference.  The gentleman was especially helpful toward his wife (who was on a walker).

I wondered what my husband and I looked like. (We were, of course, much sillier, we just can’t seem to stop cutting up.)  Did we serve each other in kindness?  Did we speak to each other with respect?  I guess, what I came away with, is that I want to look like that.  When folks look at me, I want them to see that my husband is special to me and deserving of kind and respectful treatment.
