After a long, full day, I asked my wife, “How did the meeting go?” My wife had just finished a meeting for a position she holds in our church. The second I asked the question another question pierced my mind, “Why don’t you ask her a question that really matters?” After she answered my first question with the typical answer you give when someone asks you about a meeting, I asked her a much more profound question about life and her happiness. She turned to face me with a somewhat shocked and puzzled look. I quickly said, “I ask you about little stuff all the time, why not ask about the big stuff.” She shrugged and nodded to suggest that was an interesting point.
She then proceeded to answer the second question. It turned into a deep, meaningful and bonding 10-minute conversation. It was the type of conversation that we have little of and need to happen much more often. It was a type of conversation that I think every sincere, meaningful relationship yearns to have. It was quick and in a casual setting, but it was awesome!
So, just a thought, when you love someone and truly care about them, don’t be afraid to ask questions that matter (and then silence… listen!).
Thank you for reading.
