As I lay in bed sleeping this morning, Sylvia spooned up behind me and kissed my shoulder. I was gently awakened by these kisses. I said “good morning” and smiled to myself. We lay in bed and cuddled for half an hour. It was so nice. Sometimes it is the little things that mean the most.
Last night, Sylvia was in a panic over something she couldn’t find. She needed it for a presentation today. I offered to help her look, but we still couldn’t find it. I then offered to run to the store to buy what she needed. She was reluctant at first, but then said I should go. I was happy to go and get what she needed. It made me feel good to know I could ease her stress.
These gestures of kindness and love mean so much to me and I think they mean as much to Sylvia. She holds me when I am upset or sad. She supports me when I am down about something. I do the same for her. These little things help keep any relationship going. I haven’t had this experience in my past relationship and I am glad I can experience it now.
