A Sign of Respect

July 31, 2013

in the generous life

I was looking at our vegetable garden and realized I was looking at more than just the fruit of all my husband’s hard work. I realized its existence was a statement of respect for the things that are important to him.

I could have fussed about the cost in time and money. I could have fussed about the weeding or the bugs or the size (it’s takes up a fair amount of our yard).

Instead I made room for what he enjoys and what is important to him.

Respect… is appreciation of the separateness of the other person, of the ways in which he or she is unique.  Annie Gottlieb

What about the hundreds of dollars of great produce! You sure seem to enjoy the raspberry cobblers and strawberry rhubarb pies!

Love you – thanks for supporting me so well in ALL that I do.

There are some major perks to having a husband that gardens. :) Love the asparagus too!
