Say Yes

March 28, 2013

in the generous life

When your husband asks for something, say “yes.”

Think about how hearing a “yes” makes you feel. He probably feels the same way. It hurts to hear “no.” It warms and blesses to hear “yes.” 

I know sometimes it’s not feasible to say yes, just do it as often as you can. You can also give a “qualified yes” by saying something like, “Yes, but can we do (whatever) this afternoon (or whenever)”. You are saying “yes,” but you are making it workable for you as well.

I imagine that yes is the only living thing.  e.e. cummings
