Broke the jelly jar and glass got everywhere.
I immediately thought of one thing – “My wife did this.” This is her fault. She didn’t put the lid back on.
I got angry.
It was EVERYWHERE.
I started to clean it up – big chunks first.
Next thought – She had better appreciate that I’m cleaning up after HER since it’s HER fault.
She was upstairs with our kids. We had spent that afternoon outside playing and she spent 2 or 3 hours cleaning our home.
I’m not sure I said thank you. I probably didn’t.
Why after 5 years of marriage do I still think I’m so freakin’ special? that what I do is so important, so different than what she does?
The key to a healthy marriage is to wake up every day and NOT think of yourself first…then go throughout your day doing that again and again.
Think the best of your spouse.
