What is that "little thing" your spouse does?

What is that "little thing" your spouse does? 1
Happy Holidays everyone! During this cheerful time, I am reminded that it is the small things we take for granted that are oftentimes the most meaningful. What is the "small thing" your spouse does that is really meaningful to you?


For me, it's when my fiance brings me coffee. Sometimes he goes out of his way to stop at Starbucks after work for me. Or when we go on vacation, he will quietly slip out of the hotel room and sneak out to get me coffee or order it up to the room. For me, receiving coffee is the equivalent to my friends receiving flowers for no reason LOL

    I love this question. We can take so much for granted it's nice to stop and appreciate the little things. My husband gets up for work earlier than me so he makes the coffee when he gets up. But what I really appreciate is that he brings me a cup in bed to wake me up. I also appreciate that he does things for my family without hesitation or question because he loves them as much as he does his own family.

    DH makes me breakfast most days and packs a lunch for me for work . . . even though I normally come home for lunch. He generally packs enough for me to feed myself and all my coworkers, so I have plenty to snack on Smiley smile

    I had a coworker who used to call them my "adult school lunches" because Rob would pack (just an example) three juice pouches, a bag of chips, a sandwich, a container of fruit, a container of vegetables, veggie dip, some sort of other snack, and a dessert (or three).

    He cleans. Like, everything. Even while I'm cooking he cleans what I am using. It's sweet, and annoying at the same time. ROFLMAO Looking for the spatula to use again and he's washing it. Smiley heart But seriously, he is a Type A personality and gets a huge charge out of things neat, orderly and clean. He LIKES cleaning. I pretty much hit the jackpot this time around.

    Breakfast is a great one! I am usually running around like crazy getting the dogs fed and making sure they do their business before I leave in the morning, that I rarely have time to eat anything before work. Having someone do that would be amazing!

    Before we were engaged, my husband would hold my hand and rub his thumb on my ring finger to tell me that there will be a ring there someday.


    After getting engaged, he asked me every morning we were together “Do you promise to love me forever and ever?” and put the engagement ring on my finger.
    We’ve been married for a year and a half and he still asks the same question every single day before putting my wedding band on. Sometimes I’m barely awake, but it’s the best way to wake up.

    I just found this thread and oh my heart. What sweet things!

    Cece, like you, I am addicted to the bean water and my fiance is such a sweetheart - he knows going to get coffee is the first thing I'm thinking of in the morning and sometimes he makes it for me just the way I like it, other times he finds me good places! This Christmas he bought me a coffee bean subscription where you get a different coffee every month!

    He also always - always - carries the groceries in after we shop and won't let me help. I'm so grateful for him. He's the best.

    I think our men are very similar. Mine always carries in the groceries as well! He just did this last night, and I totally made a mental note about how much I appreciate it; especially since I absolutely detest carrying in groceries! I recently moved in with him, and the city I moved away from had grocery delivery service where they would deliver and bring your groceries into the home for you. Where we live now doesn’t have this service, so I am extra appreciative that he will do this without complain
