The Little Things

It is so satisfying to be getting back to normal. Sure our weekends and all my days off up until this point have been filled with unpacking and house projects. But this week we set Sunday aside. After church we went apple picking, visited with some friends and then went out on a date and came home and snuggled up to watch a movie. Oh, how I’ve missed that quality time.

And I also feel like I have the time and energy to do the little things again. I was just SO happy last night as I packed Jason a lunch for the next day and slipped in a cute little note written on his napkin. Can he make his own lunch? Sure he can. But Jason’s love language is acts of service. And the fact that he won’t have to make that lunch because I spent a measly ten minutes making sure he eats well will cause him to feel so loved and cared for that it will bring a tenfold return in our relationship. Now that’s a good investment!

That's sweet. And so important to keep a relationship strong in doing little things like that.

So glad you have time to catch up on your blogging, too! :-)
