Sometimes more than words small gestures matter.
There is a particular tea cup which my husband doesn’t find comfortable holding because its handle is a bit narrow. Generally, I take that cup and give him another cup when having tea. But since yesterday I have been noticing that whenever my husband is making tea, he takes the narrow-handle cup for himself and gives me the broad-handle cup.
Today, I asked him why he was using the cup that he “disliked” and gave me the other cup. He said, “I know you have been having right thumb pain issues due to your arthritis for the past 2 days and it would be difficult for you to hold the narrow handle.”
Sometimes we fail to notice and appreciate the small actions by the people who love us 😍
