It's the Little Things ...

That Daniel does to make me smile :) And to make sure I feel loved :)

Monday is "Daniel's Jeans" day in the laundry department. Anybody who's man does any kind of manual labor is probably well familiar with the NEED to check every pocket in his shirts and pants before putting them into the washing machine. I find all kinds of things. And usually if I miss something it's the time there was an ink pen, but I digress.

Monday I cleaned out his pockets, and the treasures went on top of the dryer for the time being. One of the treasures was a blue, heavy duty, latex glove (I forget what he uses them for... some kind of cleaner or glue or something that you don't want to get on your skin).

Tuesday morning I went to start the washing machine and this is what was waiting for me: He had taken the blue glove and shaped it into the "I Love You" sign where he knew I would find it :)

Yesterday (Wednesday) when I made his lunch I made sure to write something sweet on his sandwich baggie :) It's been a while since I've done that, and it's something I need to do more often. Not that I don't love him, or forget to let him know, but I need to make sure and slow down, to not let the hustle and bustle of getting him out the door keep me from doing the little things that make him feel especially loved :)

AW! That's sweet! I like to keep a dry erase master in the master bath & write notes to Hubba to find in the mornings. He likes finding them. The plus side- no waste!

That is SOOOO sweet!! :)

I like to leave little love notes on post-its and stick them to Jason's laptop screen. It's definitely the little things that make a marriage.
