What a God send, I am now half way through the 81 blocks.
He also took the pressed ones, put them on the table 9 blocks each, turning each group so they are easily identifiable. He then placed a sheet of plain paper and some books to help keeping them flat till I can join them.
THANK-YOU for posting this, it has made reflect on how my husband shows his love for me!

This examples team-work in a relationship, the act of doing something for your partner without having to be asked and makes my heart smile!

My husband is very much like this. After nearly45 years of marriage it's the little things that count just as much as the BIG things that he has done throughout our relationship to keep it vibrant and loving.

My husband will frequently thank me for doing his laundry, making sure when he goes to the closet that he has clean clothes. Most every meal he finds something to compliment about it and he thanks me for my efforts. Even before we were retired, while preparing meals, especially huge holiday meals he'd follow behind cleaning up as I prepared the meals.

On a recent trip back home to visit our kids, I was watching our adult son with his wife, he does the same thing now, I guess my husband led by example. :0)

My daily challenge? Not to ever take this man for granted and remember how blessed I am.

Bless him! You are a very lucky woman, but I am sure you already know that.

My husband is my greatest supporter, he shops with me for fabric, helps me with great opinions, ideas, etc., but is not hands on....but that's okay with me....he is still a keeper.

Thanks for sharing your story...it made me smile!
