Thoughtfulness is always appreciated. Especially if the act is something the receiver really needs or wants. A spouse has the unique opportunity to be thoughtful in ways other people simply can’t because they aren’t close enough to see the need.
When was the last time you did something thoughtful for your spouse?
Go ahead. Think about it. And when you remember, won’t you share it with us? Maybe your thoughtfulness will inspire others who are having trouble thinking of something to do.
Today we discovered both our son and son-in-love did something very thoughtful for their brides; they gave them the afternoon off to go to the mall for some much needed time without the children. The amazing thing? Our son lives here and our son-in-love lives in Atlanta. They both did this today without knowing the other was doing the same. It blessed me to no end knowing our kids are learning to love and serve in the way they’ve seen their dad[in-love] do.
Thoughtfulness begets thoughtfulness,
and Tom excels in being thoughtful. And most often when I don’t deserve it. Anyone can be thoughtful to someone who is being thoughtful back, but our Savior gave us an example which raises the bar considerably. He gave thought for us before we ever thought about Him. In fact we were running the other way when He graciously chose us to be His own.
What thoughtful thing can you do for your spouse today? This week? Now make plans to do it.
