Saying Yes

Do you ever think about how often you say "yes" to your husband?

Even though Adam first said yes to me (I asked him to go to my senior prom with me), over the last 13 years we've been together, I've said yes to him a lot.

I said yes when he asked me to marry him.

I said "I do" when we got married.

And I continue to say yes to him almost 9 years later.

It seems like a simple response, but I'll be honest, there are times when I don't want to say yes. Because sometimes saying "yes" to Adam means saying "no" to something I want. And I'm selfish!

Sometimes it's as simple as getting him his computer charger or a drink of water when he's comfortable on the couch. Or offering to change Emerson's dirty diaper, even though I've changed his diapers all day.

But sometimes saying yes means I have to sacrifice something. Like when he wants to go to dinner with coworkers and I stay home and watch Emerson or when he would rather relax at home than go, go, go all weekend.

I still have a lot to learn about selfless love, but I am learning that when I say yes to Adam, I'm saying yes to our marriage. And by saying yes to the big things and the little things, I am choosing to him.

How do you say yes to your husband?
