Every day, I either ask my husband how his day went, or if it’s early in the morning, if he has any plans for the day.
I’ve done this on and off for twenty some years.
The other day, I just looked at him, a little miffed (o’kay, maybe a little hurt), that he never asks me. Ever. Instead of getting mad right off the bat, I just out-right asked him why.
You know his answer?
He stopped what he was doing and looked at me and told me a list of 8 things I planned on doing that day. And you know what? He was right.
That shut me up.
He smiles, then says, “I listen.”
It floored me. For one, I didn’t know I talked that much and two, I didn’t really know he listened to what I said so closely.
Now isn’t that sweet and just like a man. lol
