What Do We Look Like?

in the generous life

From The Generous Wife archive:

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. 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.
