So here it goes!!
TLD #12 - Demonstrate love by willingly choosing to give in to an area of disagreement between you and your spouse. Tell them you are putting their preference first.
On Wednesday my hubby took the day off to take the kids to school and head to the ss office to replace his missing ss card. So he called me and I advised him to take his birth certificate and passport just to ensure that he the right documentation so he could take care of it. Well not long after talking to him I receive a text that he left the documents on the top of the car and drove off. WELL in the past I would have blown a gasket - yelled, cursed, got mad BUT now what would that do he already felt bad, I was miles away and couldn't help so I just calmly told him go to the office take care of what you needed and hopefully it would turn up.
On my way home from the conference he again texted me that he couldn't find it anywhere - I kept my cool and told him that once I got home we would figure out what to do with about a lost passport. Within all of my excitement from getting home, unpacking and eager to see my babies I didn't even yell or get mad I just told him that we would figure it out - can't change it. So as we load into my car to go get the babies he yells look at that - laying by the side of the road was passport just a few houses down the street. SEE me not losing it and allowing him the space to do his own things worked itself out!!!
I feel I put his hurt feelings before my selfish reaction!
