I was reading a story yesterday about a man who had just come home from a business trip. He only had 4 hours before he had to go back to work for a meeting so wanting to help his wife who was on her own during his trip, he started fixing the washing machine that was broken. His wife came out and told him, “Richard, go play with the children.” He told her that it was okay, that he needed to fix the washing machine first. His wife then said to him again, this time more firmly, “Richard, please go play with the children.” So he listened to his wife(smart man!) and went and played with the kids instead. They ran around, chased each other and rolled around the leaves. That night at 4 a.m, he was woken up by two little arms around his neck and a whisper in his ear, “Daddy, you are my best friend.” He went on to say that if you are having that kind of experience in your family, you are having one of the supernal joys of life.
