“The actions are instruments. Through those actions, I might reach his heart. And I often do. But it’s not about the actions; it’s about the knowing. It’s about the reaching for the heart of the man and truly, truly caring about what resides there. The actions are very useful tools. Sometimes, when the tools are fully at my fingertips, though, I become more concerned with the tools than with the man himself. How well am doing the housekeeping thing? How good a soccer mom am I? That’s not what it’s about.” Elizabeth Foss
This beautiful post reached through cyberspace today and really touched my heart. It is my prayer that I never allow my actions to overshadow my ability to listen and be “The Good Wife”. Thank you Elizabeth for sharing.
