Have you read PK's post? Her post is just plain sweet and poignant. At the heart of the post is a simple piece of bacon cooked by Nick. Sadly one piece of bacon! So PK's sweet husband shares the piece of bacon with PK. True love demonstrated because love is in the doing......... always! Nick shared what he had. I found the post heartwarming and spooky.
Yes, spooky because what Nick did was so much like what Jack does. He shares the last of something with me. He puts me first always. He does many little things that just are so thoughtful. I have not put gas in my car since his deployment days. He takes care of me. Sometimes it bugs me......... at dinner he insists I serve myself first. When I say "no, you get to go first tonight, he reaches down and slaps my bottom to get me moving on taking the first portion.
I have called my husband Jack for longer than this blog is old. He has his name long before the name Meredith was chosen. My guy is a "jack of all trades". He can do many things: carpentry, cooking, quieting a crying grandchild, cutting my hair when we were impoverished young marrieds, leading his military people, sheltering me from the wolf at the door, planning big vacations coordinating planes, trains and cars, hotels, and the list goes on.
Jack and Nick have not met, but I think they would really like one another. They seem to be cut from the same cloth as my Grandmother would say. They take care of the women their love. What better trait is there!
We still tussle with laundry........ Before our early retirement, that was my domain. Now Laundry Wars continue meaning that he starts the washing at odd times and folds laundry in the quiet of an evening. Who would have thought laundry is a source of agitation here at our house? Grrrrrr! Please do not tell me to just let him do it. I take care of my lingerie and clothes. He mixes it all up and disasters have happened. We bought Muji laundry containers that separate things. It seems to help as I declare my laundry rights. We are actually trying His and Her laundry for awhile. LOL!
What does your sweet guy do to put you first in his love?
When men take care of the women they love, it melts my heart even more than the smell of bacon. However, I do love bacon!
