"The best portion of a good man's life: His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love." William Wordsworth
This man reminds me by his actions rather than his words exactly why I married him in the first place!
My dear, sweet husband is a great provider to each family member. He lovingly takes his parents breakfast every morning and makes sure they have dinner every night. He takes great care to see that his (terminally ill) Father is gently tucked in each night. He comforts his Mother and fills the bird feeders for her enjoyment. This gentle giant (his heart) of a man is the man in line at the grocery store giving the woman in front of him money because she doesn't have enough. He is the man buying breakfast for the military personnel he encounters giving thanks for their sacrifices. He is the businessman worried about an elderly couple's electrical fire, checking in to make sure they are okay on a Friday night and insures that electricity will be restored on Saturday morning (a non working day for our company) and brings them Egg McMuffins for breakfast.
It is the quiet, thoughtful acts of kindness that melt my heart.
I...Am...a very Lucky Woman!!!
