Went running with my lovely wife yesterday, after the run, we were cooling down and took a walk in the park and started to chi-chat, inevitably the topic was on our eldest son Jovial.
As we started talking about him, my lovely wife suddenly started to tell me about my "down sides" as a father, instantly i was telling myself i must really shut up and not to interfere her or digress to something else and let her finish pouring out her thoughts and her feelings.
As soon as she was done sharing, i did not put forth my thoughts, i just kept quiet. I was telling myself here i was listening to someone who has been with me for the past 15 years or so, she must have known me long enough to know who i was and what i was and even my ways of being a father and a husband.
Sometimes i wonder, do we really give our spouse a full ear when she/he speaks especially being married for a long time now... i am guilty of that at times too if not most of the times........
I really thank God for my lovely wife and i appreciate her dearly.
P/S : Everyday i love her
