In one his lecture’s Fr. Ripperger’s asserts that one of the most beautiful things in this world is a silent woman. This statement struck me as true.
I asked my DH if he thought it was true and he agreed. He then told that a year ago at Mass I left the pew and went to the side to soothe our baby, he didn’t realize this and when he saw me, he thought to himself, who is that devastatingly beautiful woman? (He has never called me that before ) He realized oh, that’s my wife. My silence changed my disposition so much that my husband didn’t even recognize me.
Being an introvert, a natural loner, a very quiet person in social situations when my husband comes home, I feel like finally the person who understands me is here and I can talk! Probably way more than he’d like. But this revelation definitely makes me want to shut up more. At least give him a little more room to relax.
