How much do you truly appreciate your significant other? Today in boxing class, I had an enlightening conversation. My wife (Sonia) could see I was annoyed and somewhat bothered. She looked at me, motioned with her boxing glove and said "smile babe". The man on the heavy bag next to me saw this and became emotional. After class he shared with me that he was going through a separation from his wife...."I would love if my wife would encourage me like that". As he cried and shared his emotional testimony with me, I became more appreciative of the small yet powerful gesture from my wife. I related to his pain, because Sonia and I went through our own season of tears and hurt. I shared with him the importance of self accountability, reflection, and the true power of prayer. I truly appreciate my wife, all she is and does. We may overlook the "small" things... but when we lose sight we must rely on God, to open our eyes to see what is truly important in life and the love that surrounds us. Sometimes all we need is a sweet reminder from our spouses, with all the "small things" they say and do that can change our day. Thank you Lord for the emotional awakening and appreciation.
