A Clearly Romantic Gesture by Keli Gwyn
Are you good about keeping your windshield clean?
I confess I’m not. In my defense, I drive a truck. Since I’m only five foot two, I have to drag out a step stool in order to reach the top half of my SportTrac, making the task of washing the windshield an undertaking.
Gwynly (aka Carl) knows how much I dislike a dirty windshield and what a pain it is for me to wash mine. Since he’s got a foot on me and doesn’t require a step stool, he’ll often clean my windshield for me as a surprise. Yup. He knows how to make me happy.
One day my guy took his generous gesture to a new level. I awoke to find the cute critter we use to give each other messages sitting on my place mat bearing a note.
The note read, “Buggly says, ‘Please sit in your truck to read your morning note there.'”
I smiled, being fairly certain a clean windshield awaited me.
Sure enough, when I headed downstairs to leave for my Curves workout and climbed into the driver’s seat, I found a note taped to my steering wheel.
The note read: “Wifely, I cleaned your windshield so you can clearly see, ‘I love you.’ C”
Once again, I smiled. When I removed that note, looked through the sparkly clean glass and read the unexpected note taped to the storage drawers in front of my truck, I burst out laughing.
Gwynly had taken his kindness to a whole new level, playing with words the way I like. Seeing “I love you” in those bright red letters made my day.
I told Gwynly not to expect that note to disappear anytime soon. Every time I see it, I’m reminded of his romantic gesture and am filled with gratitude for the great guy I have.
Question: What small gestures does your special someone* perform for you? How could you turn a simple task you do for your
special someone* into something more? *Note: If you don’t have a “special someone,” insert “someone special.” We all have those people in our lives.
