All Wives: STOP, LOOK, and LISTEN

Last week I was in the car with my husband going to pick up our daughter from the airport. The drive is an hour and a half, and as usual, I was doing most of the talking.

I have so many things on my mind…

There was a brief pause in my talking, and my husband said to me, "I think of your mind as a freight train going by fast. Thoughts or ideas jump off as you're talking and sometimes a whole thought doesn't quite make it off, before the next one tries to jump off. And when I try to tell you something, it's hard for me to get my thought into one of the train cars fast enough."

We both laughed at the accuracy of his description. However, I keep thinking about what he said: I don't think I'm alone.

Wives: we need to STOP LOOK and LISTEN to our husbands.
