This cup of coffee means so much more than just a cup of coffee.
Every morning and I mean every morning Jonathan gets up with whoever woke up first and makes me a cup of coffee for when I get up. He knows I’m not a good morning person and that this helps me transition better into the day. He’s done this since our first morning together. (Minus the kid part)
I never asked him to do it he never complains about it, it’s just one of those things he does for me that says I love you. I have never once made myself a cup of coffee… sounds crazy right. This is two fold, he doesn’t like to clean or do laundry. He’s only a handful of times done these things since we’ve been married not because he doesn’t want to, can’t do it or that he thinks its beneath him but because I love doing that for him. I enjoy doing the things he doesn’t. I do it before he gets the chance so he doesn’t have to. How cool would it be when we are all old and our kids are grown they can say I always saw my dad fix my mom a cup of coffee in the morning while she slept and usually was the last to get out of the bed and you know dad hated cleaning and mom always just did that for him so he didn’t have to!
I hope and pray that that is what my kids see about our marriage that we loved each other that much that they see we always tried to show love to the other by doing things for each other… especially the things that the other person didn’t like!
So are you doing things today to show your spouse you love them? Are your kids getting the right idea about love and how marriage can be such an amazing thing that’s it’s not 50/50 it’s 100%? I can’t wait to say on my last day on earth “thank you Jonathan for loving me everyday and that I never had to make myself a cup of coffee”! so cool so neat! Life is beautiful if you make it beautiful!
