Share Your Gratitude List – You Might Learn Something
In her Share Your Gratitude post, my wonderful wife mentioned that she gave me a list of 32 things about me for which she is grateful. The one that really got me, tears and all, was
#9 your driving skills
I’ve never been at fault for an accident and I’ve managed to avoid several close calls caused by others. For many years my work involved a lot of driving and I feel confident in my skills. I think I am competent, safe, and sane. I also realise I was a bit of risk taker on the road when I was younger. I was alway able to handle it, but it caused my dear wife some anxiety.
Last year I drove ten tons of truck and RV some 35,000 miles. No accidents, not even with trailer tire flats and a blowout. Still, Lori was sometimes nervous because of our size and long stopping distance, and closer to scared on a few of the mountain passes. She told me she trusted my driving, but I was still aware of her apprehension.
So, it really blessed me that she included my driving skills on a list of things about me for which she is grateful.
If you told your husband what you are grateful for about him, what might you learn?
