Giving Thought to Thoughtfulness

Earlier today I sat in the backyard and watched my husband drag his chainsaw into a fenced area to work on our wood pile (we had to fence it in because our dog, Widget, loves to chew on logs and he would drag them all over the yard in the process).

He got in and all set up only to realize that he forgot his measuring stick (a PVC pipe with markings). I hopped up to retrieve it from the garage. It saved him a trip through the gate (held in place by bungees) and past the (very excited) dog.

I’m sharing this not to toot my horn, but to show you how just a little bit of thoughtfulness can bless your sweetie. It took me less than two minutes and saved my sweetie quite a bit of aggravation.

Showing consideration and thoughtfulness is an amazing expression of love. Practically that can look like serving up seconds so your tired husband doesn’t have to get up. It can be parking the car in a place that works better for him or going with him to a meeting that he’s dreading. 

Look for small thoughtful ways of saying “I love you.”
