I have a
Sometimes I feel like we become complacent in our relationships. This is simply an observation. I am by no means an expert on dating or relationships. After a long time together, doors don't get opened, bags don't get carried etc. Why do we eventually stop doing these little things for eachother? I hope Jared always opens the door for me and carries bags for me. Not because I am incapable of doing those things or because I feel like he should be superior over me but because I feel respected and taken care of.
I hope I can always show Jared respect. I hope I never stop picking up a random packs of his favorite gum, stocking my refrigerator with his favorite soda, making him dinner or rubbing his back. I hope I can always think beyond myself and do something nice for him every day. Nothing extravagent. Just simple things that remind him how appreciated he is and how thankful I am to have him in my life.
So, dear readers (all 3 of you) I challenge you to pick one person in your life and do/say something nice to them every day over the next week. That may or may not be buying gifts for someone. An extra hug, a card, a random "hey hope you're having a good day" text or voicemail will do the trick. Give it a shot. Look beyond your busy life, your bad day and your pride. It's hard but it can be done. I've already chosen my person.. how about you?
