I think that when you have been together for a long time we forget that our words leave scars. When you are Ds it is even more important that our words are carefully chosen. That we have patience with each other. That we truly listen to each other.
Time is an expensive commodity. When someone is willing to spend their time with you it’s a great gift. One to not be taken lightly. Giving your time to someone should be seen as a gift. Attention is something we crave. We never want to be made to feel like we are a convenience. When we carve out time for someone we want it to mean just as much to them as it does to us. When we give attention to someone we want that same attention given in return. Time and attention seems small but truly it is not.
