It’s rare that I write about something happy, so I thought I should write about this. Today for dinner I made asparagus, and I know my partner will only eat the tops, so I separated the tops from the bottoms in the pot, and then I put the tops aside for her and I ate the bottoms. Then I thought about how routine this is for me, and how it doesn’t feel like a nuisance, it just feels like taking care of my partner. And it makes me feel good. It’s an act of caring and love. I think that’s how you know you love someone, when you do things like that.
We are lucky to have each other. Feel free to share your goofy and sweet things you do for you partner, if you want.
