This is too much.
My husband just does not know when to stop making me cry happy tears.
It is the little things that matter for both of us.
Those little gestures, subtle reminders of eating lunch, checking in through out the day when we're both at work - and then these phone calls .. man, I oftentimes ask myself what have I done to deserve this man?
We have a Christmas stocking decorating contest at work and these will be judged on Friday. This contest is just for fun - don't even know what the prize is (or whether there is one to begin with) but my crafty self wanted to join. So I did and I told him about it. I haven't started on my stocking just yet & I told him I don't know if my materials at home will work so we may want to stop by at Walmart and pick some stuff up.
That was yesterday.
Today, I decided to just make do of whatever craft materials I have at home. He called me during lunch and asked me whether I was sure, and I said yes.
And then he asked, "What are you going to use?" I said, "My leftover diamond beads from all those diamond paintings I did? Probably make a tree out of those beads and glue them on the stocking?" THEN HE SAID:
"We can still go. There is a Hobby Lobby-kind of section in Walmart that sells craft stuff, bows and beads, threads and buttons you can use..." Aaaannnddd then I just lost it. I just stayed quiet - because my heart swelled. When I didn't know what to do, he brings me into focus. When I am all set to do what I think is a good plan, he takes it up a notch and comes up with a better plan.
These little things may be so cheesy or corny for others but they're just the sweetest for me.
When he said "there are so many different types but not the one WE need.", I just had to stop recording because I lost it again. Keyword WE - I don't remember spouses being a part of this contest that's just for fun but this goes to show that he wants to be a part of everything I do no matter how small.
I hope that every single one of us finds a love like this. We all deserve to love and be loved back and there are tons of things we can do to make our better half feel special but it is the little things that touches the heart. 💕💕
