Something Nice

I only have a moment before class, but I wanted to share with yall something that made my day yesterday. I was rushing around (as usual) for the past several days - working on both my jobs over the holidays, seeing family, trying to get more household stuff in order, etc. And by Monday night, I crashed. Tuesday morning, I rushed in to work because I had to be in class by 9:00.

When I left work that day, it occurred to me that my car was almost on empty the day before and I had forgot to stop for gas that morning. Realizing I'd probably made it into the office on fumes and was darned lucky I didn't get to walk, I knew I'd have to stop for gas on the way home, even though I was already running late and really, really didn't want to stop.

So I hopped into my vehicle and started the engine, looked at the display to see the damage, and my car was full of fuel! When I'd crashed on the couch the night before, my wonderful husband had gone to fill up my gas tank for me. I hadn't even noticed until that evening and what a great surprise. I know it seems like such a small thing, but it really, really made my day.

One of the most wonderful things my honeybunny ever did for me was clean the bathtub so I could take a long, empty-the-hot-water-heater-3-times, much needed bubblebath.

I've loved the roses and diamonds that have come my way, but I will forever treasure above all else the moments when he did something small and mundane that spoke volumes of his love and care for me.

tori & jaye - I totally agree!

Aaaah, Pink - that's a nice one too. I absolutely adore a hot bath.

Hi Leah - yes, he is definitely a sweetie.

lol, Mom - he's your ONLY son-in-law. But I still think he'd be your favorite anyway.

Tammy - unfortunately no, or I'd auction him off.
