Little Things Mean A Lot

Do you read this comic strip? I have a soft spot in my heart for it – probably because it began to show up in our local paper around the time I got married.

These days you can find it online. Actually, it has quite an interesting history, too.

But, there’s a reason I’m mentioning it today . . .

As soon as I get out of bed in the morning, I often get side-tracked with chores. By the time I landed in the kitchen today, Sir Beads had already finished breakfast and was dashing out the door.

So, I turned the kettle back on, and grabbed a mug for my tea. When I went to reach for the sugar, here’s what I found . . .


I immediately broke into a big smile and thought:

Love is . . .

discovering that he filled the sugar bowl for you.

It was a nice way to start the day.

I’ll bet you have a similar story about a spouse, family member, or friend.

Tell us!

Please? 😉




Little Things Mean A Lot — 7 Comments

  1. How sweet.
    I hope its not true that when they made the Sir Beads and Terry mold, they threw it away. I hope you get a ton of comments on this one.

    I can’t even begin to tell you how many little things he does. (I hope that he knows I do some for him too!)

    This is what happened yesterday.
    I use filtered water to make coffee. Someday I’ll buy a filter system, but in the mean time I get gallon refills at Walmart. We also have a water cooler with 3 gallon jugs. I ran out of water for coffee so I filled the pot from an extra 3 gallon jug and left it on the counter for the next pot. When I came home, Terry had filled a gallon jug from the 3 gallon jug so it was easier for me to pour into the coffee maker.

    He’s a gem and I love him more than I could ever say.
    xx, Carol

  2. Oh my goodness i remember that cartoon!
    It really is the little things like that that matter isnt it,especially as a marriage goes on .it really isnt the huge grand gestures its the little things that we should notice and appreciate!

  3. My hubby brings me flowers occassionally – I love it. It’s not for anything special except to say he loves me. He’s a very quiet man and not into being overly sentimental so these little gestures are truly wonderful.

  4. We are always doing little things for each other. He calls when every night when he is on the way home to ask if I need anything. I appreciate this gesture. He will bring me a fountain diet coke when he is out on Saturdays because he knows how much I like fountain soda.

  5. I must say it is funny after years you get so use to the way your hubby does things that when another man offers to do something for you that your hubby usually wouldn’t you think wow! thanks so much! it is a nice feeling, as until then you never really thought about the fact that hubby didn’t do that for you, like simply taking you bag to the car or something without having to ask. But also the reverse , like recently we were out with friends and after noticing a husband shutting down his wife when she was about to say something, I realized how freely my husband lets me speaks and never said to be quite or not to say something as he knows I am my own person as much as his wife. Now that is love, letting me be me and him be him as although we are married we are still individuals with our own voice.

  6. I remember this cartoon, too.

    It’s things like this that
    let you know that you are loved.

  7. He’s a keeper!!! I find my sugar bowl empty sometimes, because Frank uses so much sugar in his coffee and he just forgets to fill it, but he does lots of other sweet things, so I can forgive him for that! …He runs errands for me all the time and helps around the house, and he brings me home little treats to eat (but I think he really wants to eat them too! hee hee hee!) Yep, Frank’s a keeper also! … I remember that adorable cartoon! xoxo Paulette 😉
