Early on in our marriage, I remember waking up to the aroma of coffee. Vic always rose before me and the scent of brewing beans filled our home. I think I liked this more than the taste of coffee itself. Somewhere along the line, Vic started bringing me a cup every morning...with cream and sugar of course.
It's a simple gesture, this morning delivery, but 20 plus years later, I still experience something as warm on the inside as the coffee itself. Love. Deep love. Sometimes I wake up, and it is sitting on my night stand. This simple caring and selfless act has made deep deposits in my heart, reminding me of Vic's consistent commitment to our marriage...it really does 'fill my cup'.
Simple gestures, whatever they may be for a couple....coffee, cleaning, cards, repairs, listening, laughing, sitting side by side...demonstrate love and insulate us in times of disagreement, conflict or potential nitpicking.
