Why is it that for all my desire to give over to the wishes of a dominant wife that I still manage to bristle when being assigned a task? This Morning when my loving wife turned over a new task to me I saw it as "one more thing I have to do"? I see her becoming more confident and willing to direct me. That is definitely what I want so what's the deal? The deal is I'm very selfish with "my" time.
With her working full time and me at home most days she thinks I spend more time on her chores than I do. The truth is I'm into "speed cleaning". Ergo, more "me" time. "So long as she is satisfied with the job" whats it matter? I suppose you could say the "matter" is my attitude. By giving "her" list short shrift I'm treating "wife worship" as an add on to our relationship rather than honoring her with my best effort. Here again the theme that keeps my head in the right place (my version of "sub-space") has got to be "She Deserves My Very Best".
If she chose to be more critical of the tasks she allows me to do for her she would see that there is plenty of room for improvement. I'm committing here to my fellow bloggers and readers that hence forth I will redouble my efforts to "Take my time and do it right". Firstly because she deserves it and, secondly because I know it's the right thing to do and, It should help me keep my priorities straight.
Join me in my oath!
