Last night I was away until after the kids were in bed, working in schoolwork. I hadn't had any dinner and figured FWH hadn't either, so I picked up some of our favorite starters from a local restaurant and had an adults only picnic with my man.
He talked about how nice it was and how surprised he was, and I realized something...I don't do the little things for him anymore. Obviously after d day, it wasn't going to happen. But I think in the last couple of years of recovery, I just stopped caring about doing the little things that make him feel special and important.
Today I picked him up a coffee on the way home. Again, getting something for the kids and thought "ooh! The mister would like that!"
His birthday is next week and I'm thinking of ways to make him feel special. Bless his heart, I don't know how he's hung in there the last 2+ years getting NONE of this from me, but doing all the little things FOR me constantly and consistently.
I guess new life can come from dead things after all. Who knew??
Now...who has birthday ideas???
