What’s on my mind today?
This is my husband’s chest of drawers.
Every. Single. Day. I walk by it and the drawers look like this.
And every day, I just pop the clothes inside and close the drawers.
Have there been times when I walked by and thought “did he not notice 1/2 of a shirt literally hanging OUTSIDE the drawer??”
Well, duh. Of course.
But honestly, in 12 years of marriage, I have NEVER mentioned to him that I close his drawers every day.
He probably doesn’t even realize I do it. Or maybe he does. Who knows?
(Well, he does now because....the internet)
My point is this:
I love my husband, and I don’t care that he never shuts the drawers all the way. There is most likely plenty he does for me too and has never told me.
It took me a long time to realize that it is one of my greatest privileges in life to GET TO close the drawers every day.
Some people buried a spouse this year. Some people are still praying for God to send them a spouse at all. Some people went through a divorce this year. Some people can’t even stand to be in the same room with their spouse.
So, I will close the drawers.
And thank God for my husband and my life every time I do it.
