FILL IN THE GAP
It’s a Friday evening and a lot of things were being done into the night.
The children had woken up in between,were active and sat to watch a cartoon.
I had to do laundry for the baby and couldn’t leave it till the next morning so I was on top of it as “distraction” from the children were near gone.
Hubby had slept off on the sofa after a long day at work.
By the time I was through, the children were still watching the cartoon as at 12 midnight! So, I switched off the television and went to tuck them in bed.
I also woke up hubby to go to bed as he sleepily went to sleep again.
I went to turn off the generator with all lights off and made sure all doors and padlocks were locked and then straight to bed.
As I reflected on those few hours of the night thanking God and committing the night rest into his hands, the thoughts came rushing in from my muse…
Imagine you deciding not to tuck the children in the bed, allowing them to do a vigil on a cartoon, leaving your hubby to sleep in the living room with the generator running (the rule in my close is for all generators to be off by 12), there are different possible fallouts that can take place as a result of that.
You could have further said that it’s a man’s job to switch off the generator, lights and ensure the whole house is under lock and key.
YOU FILLED IN THE GAP!
Your partner might not necessarily be sleeping physically but sleeping on his roles and other responsibilities due to one thing or the other.
You might complain much as you want to but what do you do if there’s no response?
YOU’RE TO FILL IN THE GAP!
There are roles you can do something about, so if you know it is within your power to fill in, please do so!
You don’t wait until your partner rises to the occasion when it’s obvious that inactions in those areas will affect both of you and the children.
Fill up the gaps and don’t leave the dashes.
IS WISDOM for building.
