An ongoing issue in our marriage was that J was mad that I didn’t
make as much money as he does (he does pretty well financially) and my defense
was to sarcastically make fun of the simplicity of his sales job (ok, again, I get
it- God is working on me!) So, instead
of trying to buy him something and mail it to him, I prayed for guidance on the
dare. I think God gave me a brilliant substitute for today. I texted him
good morning and told him I was proud of him for being so successful and for
his clients really liking him so much and wished him a great day. (After I hit send, it dawned on my how much a man's identity is tied into his in his career and ability to provide, so this compliment was probably worth more than anything I could have bought.) J responded in kind and I told him that he
makes me smile. I had really gone into this expecting him to call me bipolar
and tell me to leave him alone, so I’m surprised at his positive response.
