So here it is.
Whenever I start to have doubt. You know. You’ve watched a love story and your life doesn’t resemble anything like that one. You begin to wonder if your husband still loves you. Oh, you don’t ever wonder? Yeah. Neither do I. Just in case someone does…
Think about something sweet your spouse does for you. Something maybe a little off the wall. Something that reminds you that he loves you.
Well. I’m not a huge ice cream lover. I like less than 5 flavors of ice cream. My all-time favorite though is Peanut Butter ‘n Chip. Can you say YUM? It’s the most delicious thing ever. It’s so super chunky that it’s almost like eating frozen peanut butter from the jar.
Here’s the scoop though. I don’t really like the ice cream part as much as I like the chunk part. The giant chunks of peanut butter and chocolate chips are divine! So as I scoop out of the container, I scoop from the middle. I work around the non-chunky part and only take the chunks. The chunky part is at least 80% of the ice cream container.
The funny part is once all of the big chunks are gone I won’t eat any more of it. It’s not worth it to me. So my amazingly wonderful husband will eat the non-chunky part even though it’s not his favorite either. He’ll just add a scoop to whatever ice cream he is eating.
Isn’t he amazing? We work well together. I get the chunky, he gets the ice cream. It works.
Is there something little like that in your relationship? Is there something small that he does that you just love?
Marriage isn’t just giant romantic gestures. It’s also the tiny, minute details that keep the relationship going. The small things are definitely where it’s at!
