It might not seem right– but I feel like when I get into a shitty place in my head – I forget all the amazing things that D does.
Often it’s the little things that we overlook and it’s those things that we need to remember when things get tough.
Many mornings D goes and warms up the car – and each time my heated seat is turned on because he knows I like my tushy hot.
My favorite thing in the world is when D kisses me on the forehead or when he pulls me in for one more smooch when I drop him off at work.
Usually I’m ready to go first in the morning so I do a few little things, like unload the dishwasher. Best thing ever – when I go to do that and I see that while I was showering he took care of it for me.
I’m a hopeless romantic, and while I think secretly way deep down D is too – he doesn’t show it the same way. So when he starts talking about houses he found that would have the perfect rooms for my kids, and us realizing our dreams of owning something together – I fall even more in love.
It truly is the little things.
And while we can be so quick to judge and nit-pick the little things that bother us – I think often people forget to really soak up and remember the little things.
Sometimes it’s hard to do this.
I have decided to be better at it and to keep note so that I can go back on the harder days and remember what made me fall in love with him and what keeps my heart skipping a beat.
I have a little book beside my bed, and at night I go through the day and remember.
I don’t do this every night – but I am trying to get better at it and it’s crazy what a difference it makes.
We have to truly remember, enjoy and LIVE in the good moments.
Remember the little things because they are what will get you through the hard times.
The little things mean the most.
