The subject for the MJP Gratitude Challenge for today is : True Love.
“I luv you Sweetbaby! :)”
“Ditto. I bought you some peanut mms.”
These are the texts sent between my husband and I one evening as I sat in the hospital with my Mother. To the untrained eye, it may seem like a stretch to find much here.
However, to a wife of 31 years, this spoke volumes. Number one, he thinks Ditto is a very funny thing to say to me. If you don’t have humor to get you through, you may not make it long enough to really grow to love each other.
Number two, he knew that I’d had a hard week. He knows that I only buy Peanut MMs for myself once a year and that this would be a special treat, then he took the time out to specifically go and find them.
A simple gesture of caring. Nothing fancy- just True Love, and I’m grateful.
