It's the little things....

We were watching Knight and Day this evening (Diaz and Cruise) and Cameron Diaz was given a truth serum and was talking about Knight (Cruise) and how its the little things he does that are so special. Amidst my giggling (she's really quirky) I got thinking about it. And that is so true.

Next Friday is mine and P's first anniversary of when we met. I can't believe its been a year...and we are still so comfortable and at ease with each other...its natural?

I'm quite happy to admit I have found my soulmate.
And I love him as much now as I did when I first fell in love. Why?

It could be because our birthday is on the same day....because we are so alike and we know each other as we know ourselves.

But,

Its the little things.

Its when he wakes up before me in the morning and makes me coffee and (if early enough) runs me a bath - and he wakes me with a kiss and a backrub :)
Its making the kids breakfast, every morning.
Its when he helps get the girls ready for school....tag team :)
Its when he spends hours cleaning my car, inside and out.
Its making sure I have a cup of coffee every morning in my travel mug for my drive to work.
Its bringing me a cup of coffee for the drive home when he fetches me from work.
Its when he wakes up early on weekends with the girls and lets me sleep in.
Its when he scrubs my back every night when I have a bath :)
Its when he washes the dishes every night.
Its when he sits with Lem every night practising her guitar chords.
Its when he pops out to the shop at 10pm because I forgot to buy smokes on the way home.

All of these cost nothing...but time. And that is one thing he is willing to give 100% of.....to me.
And to my girls.

We really are a team. And a dam good one. I'm still trying to get used to it - I never had anyone give as much time and be so willing to help before.

But I like it :) And I love him for it :)

You are so right. It IS those little things. Never forget to tell him how much you appreciate them...just in case he stops :) 15 Years later and I still get woken up with coffee and my bath run :)
