“I should’ve bought her a Mother’s Day card,” I heard him mumble from the closet.
I stifled a laugh.
I was on one of my kicks (or as my husband calls them, my rampage) to declutter and this weekend’s project was to clean out the clothes in our closet.
My husband and I are not sentimental and he forgot to buy me a Mother’s Day card that weekend.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t buy you a card. Is there anything else I can do for you today?”
“Actually, I’d love it if you’d clean out your old clothes from the closet. I’m taking a load to Goodwill later.”
Thirty minutes later, I overhear his mutter from the closet. Hee hee. I know he wasn’t expecting me to ask him to do anything. But he couldn’t very well turn me down on Mother’s Day.
I find this is true for many couples that come in to see me for their planning.
It’s the women that tend to spearhead the consultation knowing how important sound planning is for their family’s future and well-being.
Hey, we women know how to get things done. Thank goodness we have supportive husbands that want to keep us happy. Happy wife, happy life, right?
