J has learned that I am not spontaneous and has gotten good at giving me a heads up. I am getting better at going with the flow.
I have learned that when J asks for help and says it will take X minutes, I double the time. Depending on the task at hand, sometimes I more than double the time. See, going with the flow.
J has learned that I am less than cheerful when I am hungry, tired or cold. He has also accepted that it is good for me to take snacks to the hay field, go to bed early and dress like an Eskimo when needed. I have learned when J falls asleep in his chair not to wake him up to go to bed.
I am learning that the more involved we become in this business the more stressful life becomes. I am learning that little things, like opening gates or being the go-for, are important things.
I need to work on giving J the simple version of my day and not chattering on about non-relevant things. J has enough to think about without adding my drama to the list.
J knows that sometimes, I need his optimistic mostly non-judgmental point of view to help me deal with some of life’s situations.
Last night I read an idea on Barb’s Knit and Pearl blog and thought it was too good not to share. After 40 years of marriage, Barb says, “It is easy being married to this guy. His patience has been our secret to a long and happy marriage.” Let’s hope J never runs out of patience with me.
Thank You, J, for the dedication you show to our business and all the hard work you do to provide for our family. I Love You!
