My husband, David, recently had to travel out of town for several days. The first night he was gone, I was sad as I drove home from work thinking about shopping and putting up Christmas decorations by myself.
As I walked toward the house from the garage, I noticed a sticky note on the door. "Goodbye, Sweetheart, I hope you have a wonderful week!" It was from David. My heart warmed thinking about his thoughtfulness.
I was still smiling when I walked into the kitchen. I opened a cabinet and found another note stuck on a glass pitcher, "I miss you!" In the refrigerator there was one hanging from the shelf, "Your husband loves you." Later, I found seven others, including one on the headboard of our bed wishing me sweet dreams and one on the bathroom mirror that told me to "look in the mirror to see something beautiful."
It probably took David less than 10 minutes to write those messages and put them in places where I would see them. But that little gesture made me feel cared for, appreciated, and loved. So much so that I kept the notes up around the house all week to keep me company while he was away. read entire article
