Last night after the power went out, I came out into the living room and sat next to Trav on the couch. I commented on all the chairs being out of the kitchen and asked if he had been washing the floor. He said, "Yeah, I started to and then the lights went out." I told him, " I'm sorry, I've been meaning to do it for 2 days now." All he said was, " But I didn't want you to have to." it was such a small gesture, washing the floor- but it meant the world to me that he cared about me enough to do it before I finally summoned the energy to get down on my hands and knees and wash it myself. I love Trav with all my heart and I'm thankful I have a husband who is tune (most of the time!) to my feelings, energy level and accomplishmnets through out the day. he is such a good man and I love him. Later when the lights went back on, and the kids were in bed, I came out again and there he was finishing up the floor on his hands and knees. I just stood there and watched him smiling. He turned around and looked at me and said, "Why are you starring at me?" I said something silly in response but inside I felt so blessed to have a husband who cared enough to do something so small that meant so much to me at the time.
