This just in from one of our Cup Of Timers
Thank you Cup Of Time!!!
My husband and I got into an ongoing argument. I let my fleshly mind
get to me as I stormed off into the room to avoid him and the
conversation. As I sat there on the bed with my mind running with all
these negative thoughts I heard a still small voice say "Cup Of
Time"... it then became an "AHA!" moment! I went out into the living
room knowing I have seen the Husband-Wife Cup Of Time Set sitting on
the bookshelf. I then picked both of them up and slammed the husband
one down right in front of my husband. (you could say I was still
upset lol) My husband then did a little chuckle and said "Not sure if
I want to do this now". Of course I knew he was joking because he
could sense the urgency that his wife needed to talk.
My husband requested mountain dew and I had pepsi max in my cup. As we
sat on the couch in silence for the first couple minutes it seemed so
hard to talk about the same argument we have had multiple times. I
than began to speak; my husband has NEVER been good at communicating..
EVER.. when it comes to talking about what is on his mind or his
"feelings" it is a complete shut out. So after I started I asked him
questions to help me understand what he was feeling, after a couple of
tries my husband then spoke. It was such a moving forward point for us
that it truly brought me to tears. He had felt things that I would
have never known, also that I never intended for him to feel. Once
everything was out on the table we both felt like a ton of bricks was
then lifted off our shoulders! It was then during that moment I
realized how vital Cup Of Time is. If the set was never put on the
bookshelf like suggested, I would have never remembered we had it. If
we never took the time to sit, talk and listen we would have never had
our moving forward point...
Thank you Cup Of Time for reminding me on the importance of spending
time talking and LISTENING to my husband. We have been a whole
different couple since our last Cup Of Time.
