all there is

Guess what he just did?  Just guess!   

Let me preface this entry with the fact that I’m addicted to pistachios.  I eat them all day.  Nearly.  But there always remains a handful or so whose shell I can’t crack.  I don’t know how he did it, but Panky cracked each one of them open, unshelled them, and delivered them to my desk.  It's the little things, people!

Here's a snap shot of the back of a book that I saw while in a book store once.  It was so sweet that it nearly made me cry when I read it.  The book is entitled "All There Is" and it's a compilation of love stories from StoryCorps.  The back cover has a story about a man reflecting on his marriage of 53 years with his late wife, Vivian.  He shares six things to always say to your spouse.  Oh, this is good stuff...there are few things more beautiful than an older husband and wife who still have so much love for each other.

This reminds me of a line that Petey asks me nearly daily...and he says it so very sincerely every single time:  "Is there anything I can do/get for you?"  I don’t think he even puts forth much effort in the asking -– he’s just so service-oriented that way.  Regardless, it makes me melt to pieces every time he does it.  I hardly ever have something for him to do for me (cause he already does so much) but I still love that he still asks...it really does make me feel loved.
