Work was hectic, I hadn't slept through the night in two weeks, and I was just burning out all over. On Friday, it all culminated. I was cranky, tired, and just wanted to hide under a rock. Carl let me scream and vent to him. He suggested some more Big Bang Theory and a beer to add a high note to the crummy past few days.
While we were getting dinner upstairs, I sighed, "I think I want wine instead of beer. A nice big glass of red wine. Want to join me?"
Carl replied "Not really. I'm not in the mood for it tonight."
"Right - you don't like red wine. Never mind. It's not worth it to open a whole bottle and waste it for just one glass. I'll just have a beer." I said as I filled my plate.
Carl, without pausing said, "No, baby. I'll have a glass with you so it's worth it. If that's what will make you feel better, I'll have a glass with you."
It's the little things. The little bits that make me swoon a little and realize just how much he loves me. Carl has this way of making sure I am always taken care of, even in the tiniest little gesture or comments... And I can't believe how wonderful that makes this girl feel. I'm so thankful for that selfless love he gives me. I only hope he feels that I give him the same love and care in return. Even writing this, I have a big, warm smile on my face.
What are some of the little things your significant other does that make you thankful for them?
