April 2 Romantic Tip of the Week

Sorry this Tip is a couple of days late. My mailing list wasn’t functioning
properly for a couple of days. Hope you are enjoying the Spring (or Fall)
where ever you are. – Michael
The other night my wife was sitting on the floor, folding a basket of
clothes. I have never liked doing laundry or the dishes so I help out in
other ways like making dinner, picking up around the house and taking care of the yard work. I don’t think my wife likes to do the laundry either, but she
does it every week and never complains about it. While I was watching her
fluffing and folding shirts I began to think how thankful I was that my
underwear drawer was never empty.

I went into the bedroom and picked out a card from my secret stash and scribbled a quick note to thank her for always making sure my drawer was full of underwear and then placed it in the dresser for her to find when she was putting the freshly folded clothes away.

Because I had some blank greeting cards on hand, it was simple and easy to do something nice on the spot while I was thinking about how much I appreciated my wife. I also keep a stack of cards in my office and when she was working outside the home I would regularly mail them to her.
My wife particularly likes the Victorian cards that are reprints of cards
used about a hundred years ago. I try to buy a variety and I concentrate on
buying them blank inside so I can use them for nearly any occasion. The night my wife was doing laundry, I happened to have a card with a little girl
washing something in the sink. It looked as though I planned all week to have the card there when laundry day came up.
