Shut up! he says…

Got a double whammy of beautiful tonight.

My wonderful husband, Michael, (who knows very little about massage, but has made an excellent student over the years, taking all my little instructions on board) giving me a little reflexology massage to soothe my tired, aching feet…

And then I start to tell him something judgemental about myself and how I spent my day, and he tells me to shut up. He really doesn’t want to hear it. I hate other people judging me, he reminds me, so why am I doing it to myself. I need to shut up.

And being told to shut up like that turns out to be a very beautiful thing indeed. It’s made me smile – quite a lot.
