I was initially going to talk about power dynamics in relationships today, but as I sit to write this post I am completely out of juice so instead I’m going to talk about what care looks like in a relationship.

As we come to the close of a weekend, I reflect on how grateful I am for my excellent spouse and the care he provides for our family. I came down with a stomach bug but still, I had homework to do – assignments due in two classes.  I have been struggling this semester and so both these assignments have been left to the absolute last minute.

Nathan, in his magnificence, took charge of our children while I hunkered down in bed, did my research, and completed my assignments with regular trips to the bathroom.

I know he also wasn’t feeling spectacular, but he stepped up and did what he could so that I could do what I could to at least attempt success in my classes.

That is what care looks like. It looks like doing what you can when your partner cannot.
