This man. You guys, I am thankful for this man every day of my life.
Earlier this year, I had gotten it in my head to try and have a date every month of the year. Coronavirus might steal April from us. I'm not sure yet. But, up until the pandemic hit, we had been doing well. We went to a movie in January. We went to a bookstore and out for dessert in February. And we attended the school play after a nice dinner in March. Nothing fancy, but time to ourselves without the kids.
Anyway, as we were driving up to school for our March date, I said something about how I knew he spoiled me.
He glanced over from the steering wheel. "Do I?"
Didn't he know? Wasn't it obvious? I mean, my craft stuff seems to take up half the house, I'm a horrible cleaner, and I complain a lot. And he lets me.
He brings me chocolate for every holiday. He makes sure I get my time to myself in the shower in the evenings instead of having to juggle being a mommy at the same time. He doesn't mind that I attend book club meetings and bible journalling get-togethers a few times a month to get out of the house and have adult talk.
Isn't that spoiling?
The more I thought about it, the more I thought maybe it's just the way it's supposed to be. We should each be treating one another in such a way that the other thinks they're being spoiled. Right?
Because, let me tell you something. when I feel spoiled and cherished and loved, I am definitely more likely to want to treat him better in return. It's a win-win.
How about you? Do you feel spoiled? Does your husband or wife know you feel that way? Maybe you should let them know you appreciate it. :-)
This is a place for me to share thoughts and ideas not just related to writing. Thoughts about what's going on in my life, about an idea I got that I thought shareworthy, or just a funny anecdote.
