It's the Little Things
Tonight I arrived home from work to a husband standing at the top of the stairs with my favorite Tequila Sunrise in hand. The house smelled of the Italian chicken and pasta he had made for dinner. On the table, a salad with a side of chopped mushrooms just for my bowl, since I am the only one who likes them. During the day, he ran to town to take the comforter from our bed to the laundromat. I have never been spoiled in my life. I have seldom even know what it was like to have someone that not only didn't need me to take care of them, but invested their time and energy into making me happy and making my day just a little easier. In the few months that he entered my life, Gary has shown me more love and companionship than I have ever known. I can still remember what it was like to be alone in the world, struggling. I hope I never forget so that I always appreciate this gift given so freely, daily of his love.
