Paul had a really tough day last week … lots of computer woes and a fair amount of physical work. By dinner time he was beat.
I fixed his dinner and brought it to the table. I pulled the tomatoes into the garage (we’re hardening them off and nights are still fairly cool here) and made jello with fruit (out usual evening treat). As I went through the evening, if there was something I could do that he normally did, I took care of it.
The next day he told me how much he appreciated that I took care of so many little things to make his day easier. He felt genuinely cared for and understood.
Being gracious and generous toward your husband doesn’t have to be huge or difficult. Sometimes it’s just about being aware and taking care of the little things.
It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little – do what you can. Sydney Smith
