What a gift we can all give to our spouses, to be happy in and for them.
When I read this, it just made me smile. It is the sweetest of gifts to be on your spouse’s team. To care about them and be pleased on their behalf.
It reminded me of something Paul and I have been saying to each other (in one form or another).
I want you to have a happy life. I want you to have adventures, do the things you feel passionate about, enjoy your life!
I know, real life isn’t always fun. There are dishes to wash and reports to write, but you can grow an attitude of being on your spouse’s team. Encourage them to explore. learn, and build a happy life.
Invite your man out for coffee (or meet on the couch after the kids are in bed). Tell him you want to be the kind of couple where you are on the same team and help each other have good lives. What does he want? What do you want? How can you help and encourage each other?
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. Maya Angelou
