It’s the little things he does that makes me smile. Often though I really don’t notice them, or I take them for granted.
Monday I mentioned that I would be starting a gratitude journal concerning my amazing man. However, since I will be doing the features from last weeks Matrimonial Monday, I thought I would share this post early. So I don’t miss any weeks.
The Little Things He Does
#1 When I wanted to quit working so many hours (60+ a week) I was given the advice to take on cleaning jobs because they pay well. Hubby was very supportive of my decision to make some changes. So supportive in fact, that a week later he came home from work and told me he found my first place to clean! Turns out the company he works for needed some-one to clean the offices!
#2 Not only did he help me get that first job, he also helps me carry it through. Every other week, I show up at the shop after work and together he and I clean the place. Never mind that he has put in a full days work already! And the amazing thing about it? He NEVER complains!
#3 While I was sweeping said shop last night, the sweeper had problems three times. It was a faulty belt and had nothing to do with the person sweeping. Each of those three times I called for help fixing it, and each time my knight
in shining armor greasy clothes came to my rescue.
#4 His truck is old and needing a lot of repairs. So what if the parts cost over $100? He gets under there and fixes it like a pro! Ok, so maybe it took a lot longer than a pro… But still, do you know how much that saves us? Him being so smart and all.
#5 He is very supportive of my blog, I think I can remember less that 10 times that he has complained about it to me.
#6 He has a heart to serve. He is always saying “I need to do this or that for so-and-so” he may not carry through 100% of the time. But the thought is always there, putting me to shame.
#7 We make an awesome team at the grocery store. He pushes the cart and I slip in the tight spots grabbing what we need. If there is no one around, I am careful to walk in front of him! It keeps things fun.
#8 We make an even better team at the self check. Me, scanning things just as fast as the computer will let me, and he, trying his best to keep up, just so he can call me lazy!
#9 The fact that right now, he is getting tools and such together, so he can go help my mom tomorrow while I am at work. How sweet is he?
#10 While I was fixing supper, he put my breakfast and lunch together for tomorrow.
I really could just keep going. The more I look for good in this man o’ mine, the more I see. I am truly blessed!
Let’s not go this route, ladies!
What are the little things that you are thankful for? Make a list of the little things he does and come back Monday to link it up for Matrimonial Mondays!!!
