It is no surprise as we move further and further away from the honeymoon and life barges in with all of its busyness it is easy for the man you fell in love with to become the man that rakes the leaves and shovels the walk.
One of my secrets to fighting off the day to day drone is a secret Love Is list. Now I believe that most of us are familiar enough with the 1 Corinthians passage, but in case we need a reminder
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
My list may not be as profound, however when life catches up and I’ve had my fill of frustrations it gives me a place to return to remind myself of the man I married and the man I love. Here is a snippet of my most recent love is list.
- Putting the Coffee on
- Sharing Headphones
- Doing the dishes
- Ignoring my shoe piles
- Having Dinner ready
- Calling on his way home
- Letting me have ‘my side’ of the sofa
- Not getting mad when I take up the entire bed
What goes on your list?
