My husband is so courteous to me that when I ask for a blanket to cover up with when I’m cold, just sitting on the couch, or on top of the bed he will get my blanket and cover me up without me asking him to. If I ask him to help me take off my shirt he will automatically scratch my back because he knows what I like.
I bring him food and something to wipe his hands on and pull his table up to him so that he can eat. He didn’t ask me for a napkin or his table, but I know what he needs. If you eat you need a napkin, duh.
I make for sure that his clothes are washed for work, just like he does for me. He also makes sure that I have basketball shorts or jammies and socks to change into when I get off work because he knows what I like to change into.
Courtesy expands from one to the other which makes a relationship last. I appreciate all the things that he does for me, little things, big things, important things, thoughtful things, and things that he knows will make me happy. He is a deserving person and has a big heart.
I try to do the same for him. He is so self-operated. I know what he likes, I know what he wants, but he acts like he doesn’t want me to do anything. He does say that the gesture or offer makes him happy. He feels that he needs to take care of me as I am his Queen, but in reality, we have to take care of each other.
It’s been 17 years and we used to not see each other very often by me working full-time days and him working full-time nights. Now he has a Monday through Friday, and we’re able to spend evenings, dinners, and weekends together. This is a different turn in our relationship, but it is a good one, a late one, and one that is truly appreciated. He deserves to be off Monday through Friday, a nine to five, and home when his family after working 10-14 hours and no days off for 4 years.
