I think it is important to take pleasure in the simple little things that make you appreciate the one that you are with. One example is something that happened tonight. When Rueben came home from work, he told me that he had been so focused on exercising, that he had not had time to eat dinner. He was extremely hungry and afraid a Jenny Craig dinner would not be enough, but ordering salmon terriyaki from our favorite Japanese restaurant might be overdoing it, especially at the late hour of 9:30 p.m. I suggested a compromise: order one sushi roll and miso soup, and pair that with one of the selections from Jenny Craig. It would be the best of both worlds. He loved the suggestion, and proceeded to make it a reality. He thanked me for my input. It may not sound like much, but it meant the world to me that he would seek and follow my advice, and tell me how much he appreciated my help. I, in turn, appreciated that he wanted my input to begin with. So it was a win-win situation.
