Because Kindness Matters!

"Well done is better than well said" Benjamin Franklin

"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!!!
(dear husband and youngest child with soon to be 10th grandchild...we are entirely toooooo young to have that many granddarlings)

Ah, Connie, this is so touching!

And he is a very lucky man indeed, having you who sees his heart.

I love this. It's so touching. You know, they say that likes are attracted to likes so you're evidently a lot like this too.

There's nothing quite as wonderful as being married to a good man. I enjoyed getting to know your husband in this post.

WOW, Connie. That's so beautiful, and what makes it even more beautiful is knowing that people attract those who are like-minded. Two beautiful people rocking the universe together.

So romantic!

What a sweetie! I have a darling like that too. We are very lucky women. (I want grandchildren! My son has been married a month and a half already - don't you think it's time???) Thank you, I feel better now.
