Hello , I have a question
Yesterday I posted a daily inspiration quote from John Zabat-Zinn that said “The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.”
Which had me thinking… Which means more to me: the big things or the little things in a relationship? Well in any relationship for that matter but I’m referring to a marital relationship. Of course we all love or should I say have expectations for the big things to be taken care of. Some of the big things for a man are considered being the house hold provider, paying the agreed bills, help taking care of the kids, etc… Some of the big things for a woman maybe cooking, washing clothes, and making sure the kids are copacetic. Now, your relationship might be different. Your “Big Things” Might be different. That’s ok. These are all examples.
Is it the little things that mean the most? Not to say your not thankful for the big things because if they weren’t done then we would be stuck. The thinking of you texts, the flowers or waking up 20 mins earlier to make your spouse breakfast (thats lot for me!! I have like 10 alarms set each morning)
My Opinion: The little things mean more to me. We live life in the fast lane. We race to keep up with. We are over-worked, over-connected and over-stressed. So when HE does that one little thing… when he stops to say I need to do or get this for my wife that makes me feel so loved and special
