Love is kind - always.

My ex-husband sent me a text this evening that he had the information ready for his part of the taxes and asked me what I wanted him to do with it.  I told him that I was going to be on his side of town tomorrow morning for a meeting, and that if he wanted to put the information in his mailbox. I could drive by and pick it up, or I could get it after I get back in town.  (I am leaving Tuesday to visit my son out of town for a couple of days.)  I told him that I had a full day tomorrow and dinner downtown tomorrow night, and that I wouldn’t have time to take anything to the accountant until after I get back into town.  He said that whatever I wanted to do was ok with him.  I told him that I didn’t have a preference, and that he could choose whatever he felt more comfortable with.  He said that he would put the info in an envelope and stick it in his mailbox.  I told him that would be fine, and thanked him.  There is a part of me that wants to make him feel bad for not getting the info to me sooner, and a part of me that feels like he ought to be offering to get the stuff to me instead of me picking it up from him – but neither one of those are coming from a place of love.  Even now, especially now, love must be kind.

 

  • The flesh is right, he should be making the effort to get the info to you and he should feel bad.  But you did well in letting the flesh go and choosing  to show patience and kindness, which is love.  That was the right thing to do.  Sure isn't the world's way.
