(43-225) THE BEST HUSBAND EVER!
A little later in the day, Luis called again and told me to check out his Facebook status. I was just about to take my lunch break, so his timing couldn't have been better; and when I read what he'd written, I was stunned; but in a good way. Luis' posted "LOVE OTHERS AS THEY ARE, NOT AS YOU WANT THEM TO BE;" and I thought it was brilliant!
I asked Luis where he'd found that quote and he told me that it was something that he'd been thinking about for a while, and he'd been trying to put it into the right words. Luis thought that there might be a possibility that this idea came from something similar that he'd seen somewhere else. So he wasn't sure that he deserved all of the credit. Just to be on the safe side; I did some research (YES, research,) and guess what? As best as I can tell; he sure does! I am very happy, and extremely proud to tell you, that this wonderful quote, is in fact, a Luis Ramos original.
Talk about (say it with me,) "The Greater Good." Luis' quote is one that I want to remember every day of my life. It should be so easy for us to remember that no one is perfect; including ourselves; and yet, when we get upset, angry, frustrated or disappointed with our loved ones; it's typically because they didn't act in a way that we wanted them to. They didn't behave in a way that we would have. BUT, we have to remember that we are all individuals, with our own thoughts and perceptions and feelings; and no one person's thoughts, perceptions and feelings are more important or more valid than anothers when you're having a relationship; whether it be a romance, a family or a friendship.
Till next time...
