Ben spent the first half of the weekend camping and biking in St. George and I had my first night alone in the apartment since we’ve been married (I’ve had plenty of nights without him – it’s just always been me traveling, not him). It gave me plenty of time to think about things
While I think words of affirmation are important, verbal apologies are a good thing, and you can never have to many “i love you”s, none of those mean anything if the behavior doesn’t reflect them. They mean you recognize the problem, or you recognize the good in the person, but don’t care enough to work at it, to fix it, or to show it.
I”m taking these five words to live by for the next little bit. Do what you mean, and mean what you say, because in the end it matters far more what you did for another person than whatever words you said in passing.
What do you think?
Do words mean anything on their own without action?
