A few months into our marriage my husband and I were having an intense discussion (read: argument) and I blurted out, “no one thinks that way.” I just couldn’t fathom anyone taking his particular perspective on the topic.
He quietly replied, “But I think that way.”
The one who thought that way.
He was a someone.
And yet it’s so easy to dismiss them, isn’t it? The ones closest to us. The ones who matter the most. To declare them “no ones” through a careless word that would never be said to a stranger. Or through our calendars that fill up before thinking of them.
But these closest to us, they are someones. The most important someones in our lives.
Do you ever find yourself downplaying your most important someones?
