I wouldn’t have married a man who couldn’t make me laugh, but sometimes it’s the little things The Man does (that he may or may not even know he does) that really make me smile. Over the last couple days I jotted down a few of those things…so I thought I’d share.
He hates to admit he’s sleepy so he insists we order a movie on a weekday night then falls asleep within the first ten minutes.
Because he’s a weather channel junkie he makes a point of texting me, calling me, or waking me up to tell me that the “weather’s going to be bad outside” and so I should “be vigilante and careful”. I smile because he’s really concerned when he says it. Then I smile again because I know I’m not going to do anything differently.
He makes sure to tuck me and the dog in tightly beneath the blankets at 3:30 in the morning – every morning – when he could easily be bitter that he has to get up and go to work in the dark and we get to sleep in a little longer.
When I fall asleep on the couch watching TV or reading he’ll wake me up just to remind me to wrap my hair because he knows I’ll be sorry in the morning if I don’t.
He offers to rub my head when I’m stressed even when he’s dead tired, then falls asleep in the process with his big hands going limp across my forehead.
He tries new recipes (that he makes up in his head) then goes: “I’ll still love you if you don’t want to eat it honey” as he brings me a plate.
