The other day one of my friends posted on Facebook about how she loves the fact that every morning if her husband brushes his teeth before she does, he puts toothpaste on her toothbrush too.
Not only did the post gather over 20 “likes” and a bunch of comments about how cute and sweet it was and how her husband should be cloned, it also was an excellent example of the fact that it really is the little things that matter. In this age of huge romantic gestures, here was a wife relishing in the fact that her husband of over 15 years still took ten seconds out of his day to make her life a little bit easier.
I love this.
There are countless books out there on how to have a strong marriage or how to show love to your spouse. Although I am sure that those books offer plenty of great advice, I wonder if any of them talk about the importance of showing each other toothpaste love.
If not, they most certainly should.
Anyway, I am going to follow the lead of my friends. I am going to try and show my husband more toothpaste love. Or coffee cup love. Or remote control love. Or whatever little things I can think of to let him know I love him.
Because, really, there is nothing more excellent or praiseworthy than love.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
See you tomorrow!
