More On My Wife App

The corner where Kit fell this morning

Good Evening, God!

The Big Thing I learned today is how extremely fine tuned the Wife App needs to be.  My wonderful husband Kit wanted to go for a much longer walk than usual this morning.  And I was happy to go with him.  But turning toward home I wanted to get home quickly — the day was calling me.  Kit said he wanted to be “safe” and go slower.  I failed to respond properly to the word “safe”.  And so I took off at a jog down the hill — thinking Kit would continue on more leisurely.

WRONG!  His Male Pride was triggered!  And he tried to keep up.  Only to fall at the next to last corner. Actually, he just wanted to keep me in “sight” so he could “protect” me.  I understand that with my Heart and love him for it.  I just wish it wasn’t so foreign to my world view so I might remember it!

Fortunately, a kind neighbor (a Vietnam vet guy) was also out walking and saw Kit fall.  And with great kindness and compassion supported him on the walk home.  Truly an angel!

The tricky adjustment to my Wife App was later in the afternoon.  Kit came to me dressed for a walk and wanted to know if I was ready!  WHAT? REALLY?  You are KIDDING!!!  But, it was clear he wanted to get back up on the horse that threw him. . . but I was still busy. But, he wanted to go alone.

So, I hovered . . . and asked “What will you do if you feel wobbly?”  “Call you!”, Kit said.  “Will you you sit down, FIRST?” He smiled. And off he went.

So, God, courage and a healthy self image won out over caution and sensibility.
