Last fall my husband helped me plant daffodils along one side of our property (we have a fence planned, so we planted them just outside of our “invisible” fence). They’ve started poking up through the soil and we should have flowers shortly. Even though I knew they were there, they feel like a little surprise, a gift of color and life.
I like doing things like that for my sweetie too. Taking care of a small chore or tucking a couple of freshly baked cookies next to his keyboard isn’t a terribly big surprise, but it is a bright moment in his day, a little gift that says he is loved, that he matters.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. Robert Brault
