It's No Surprise To Me

That We Had An Amazing Day

Our plans were soon executed

So efficiently and like clockwork

Each one adding to our day of excitement

We rolled out a few suggestions

That seems to play out well

Even now with only twenty-two minutes left to this day

Everything from meeting my wife's cousin for lunch

Taking a drive and getting something to eat

Going food shopping and fixing a quick supper

Watching a little t.v. we both enjoy

It may not be the life other people have

It sure is the life I know well and live every day

My wife tired and off to bed

I stayed up a little bit to kick around some last-minute ideas

We were both off from work today

Which is where we spend the most beautiful time together

My wife and I discuss everything under the sun

An open conversation on so many topics

In between patting our cat Charlotte

We often talk to her as if she was a real person

There are so things that are nice for a man to do

When we stop for gas

I always get out of the car and gas up our car

It is not like my wife can't do it

I am glad to do it

I feel it shows respect and it is the polite thing to do

I wonder if all gentlemen do it for their spouses?

There are little things that make my wife happy

She will say thank you many times during the day

It is when I do the unexpected or pamper her just a little bit more

I get the biggest rush

It's such a fulfilling feeling I get deep inside

It was raining today so I went out and put the groceries in the car

Then I pulled the car up to the door for my wife

Usually, we go out together and I put the groceries in while she starts up the car

Recently, I have found different colorful masks at Target and at Kohl's

I wasn't in the store that long

Before thoughts flood my head

Like someone hitting the keys on an old adding machine

My brain clicks away

I thought she would love the colors and at the same time look a bit sexy

I picked them up for my wife as a little surprise

Then I wonder did I do it more for her or me

It is not about the biggest, fastest, and most expensive things money can buy

It is all about the little things that over time

That turn into the big things in our life

Brenda Arledge You hit the nail right on the head. You have triggered a good time and it only gets better when you have other people to share it with. Sometimes the greatest joys are seeing people's reactions to the poems that I write. When writing I never know where my story will go. I am uneasy about the whole process. That can take a couple of hours until I am done. Then when it is done I am so glad it is finished. I don't want to see it for a while. Then I sit and wait. I stand too. I am not sure if it helps or not. If I get a comment I am so pleased that someone found my poem. So the littlest comment means a lot. I have read so many great stories, poems, and writings on Hubpages. I honestly feel it is because of writers like you that keep us writing. Thank you so much and have a great day.

Gypsy Rose Lee You are happy by yourself because you do the things your heart wants. If the time comes where you find someone who loves the things you love you might change your mind. You have shown great passion in all your writings. It is not hard to imagine there is another special guy out there looking for someone just like you. You had a beautiful marriage and a great guy who gave you something nobody else could. You can always cherish those times and they will stay special in your life forever. I think he would want to see you happy and live your happiest life ever. Thank you for your comments and I hope your weekend was grand.

Sannyasi Raja I think we should appreciate each other anytime we can. There are so many little things that we can do during each day that can bring great pleasure to one another. Especially, when we get busy and it is easy to be exhausted. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope we all find new ways to care for each other. It can not only make someone you care about happy but make your day amazing too. The feeling of giving doesn't stop it just finds more reasons to give. May your day be bright and lovely.

Those little moments are the ones we each cherish.

Sometimes they mean more than the bigger ones.

You are both blessed to have each other and to be able to share so many things. I am now used to sharing with only myself and since I find I can rely on myself I don't feel the need to involve anyone else.

WOW. You expressed your love and respect for your wife very beautifully. You are a very nice person.
