Live the day ready to serve?
I had stayed up till 4:30 AM the night before (which is technically this morning) working. I was hoping to sleep in longer than I did. But it was a birthday day for one of our children And I knew my wife was wanting to throw a nice birthday party for them. I got up and asked – just as she was asking – whether I could help. That is one of those moments you realize being married can allow you to share each other’s mind.
Suffice to say, we went shopping for gifts and party supplies and cards. Yes, I was still a little sleepy, but I made myself available. And it was fun. I did get a couple of hours of a much-needed nap later… and the party went off without a hitch.
At the end of it all – my wife asked if I would be willing to prepare some needed ingredients for a joint event that we were having the next day. I said sure, and proceeded to chop, mix and store items, while she took a much-needed break to rest from all she had done to prepare the meal. Later, I served as a masseuse for my wife, and as watchdog for my son and friend as they wanted to galivant the neighborhood at night – now that he was a year older and wanted more freedom for night adventures.
Though I expected and deserved nothing in return, my wife did spontaneously say to me while shopping, “I love you, Sharp.” And the boys did let me know that they were back in the house – safe and sound.
Ahh… the joys of serving.
How was your experience today?
