“There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.”
The Bible, Proverbs 30:18-19
Sometimes it’s the small kindnesses that touch me deeper that the gallant gesture.
The slow dance in the kitchen to calm me down; the hand reached out to me on an ordinary summer walk along the river; putting out the rubbish; putting away a pile of things that have built up in the entrance hall; a kiss on the forehead; a text during the day; a hot cup of tea and a rusk brought to me in bed; a late night belly laugh or a sleepy morning cuddle.
Yesterday, my sweet hubby made me a delicious Chicken Korma and rice lunch. And it was scrummy!
Because I wasn’t feeling up to it, he did the shopping, prepared and served the lunch, and gave me some chopping instructions. There was a bit of mess and there where a few suggestions from a hovering wife, which he gracefully tolerated and has hopefully forgiven. I’m a recovering control freak!
I’ve preserved his dignity and anonymity in the photo I hope, but had to capture this moment… the fourth of a series of ‘from scratch’ meals by my dear hubbly bubbly, who is becoming quite the chef extraordinaire.
