The Question

A while back Ann wrote about the question she asked her husband, and I decided to try it for myself.

Len answered with two simple ideas, not even surprises. They're acts I've known he appreciates, but hadn't been doing consistently (or even often). I've been consciously trying to follow through this week.

It's all about mindfullness. There's always room for improvement. Good can keep getting better.

Are you willing to ask?

Anne's post is lovely and thoughtful, but if you just can't make the time to get over there, her question was, "How could I be a better wife to you?" Thanks to Elizabeth for pointing to it.

(And then last night he said, "You look great." And I instinctively, automatically, said, "No, I don't." And he sighed and turned, and I realized that I wasn't being a better wife... Sometimes changing habit is very hard. But to overcome habit with habit --- so I embraced him and thanked him and apologized and he smiled.

Right there with you, trying to be a better wife....

Thank you, Barbara....)

All's grace,
Ann
