Today I gave something almost without thinking. My husband woke up to his alarm this morning, and turned over and said "Honey, would it be okay if I called in sick today, I need some time off." And I said yes, and I meant it.
Normally I worry over the missing money and hours, and how we will make up for the absence, even when he is truly and honestly sick. This morning I thought- we've been going for two weeks straight with company last weekend, and a stressful week. He needs to stay home to stay sane, well, and rested.... and I honestly gave my okay with a giving heart. I never do that. He could be running a fever and in my heart I will stress out about his paycheck- which is bigger than mine, but hourly.
It was nice to think- it will be okay and he needs this. It will all come full-circle.
