The One Beside Me

He washes multiple loads of laundry on his day off. He patiently answers calls from people needing a listening ear. He makes lists of things needing done and diligently finishes it. He laughs at the small quips our children throw him.
The inventor of our creepy hide-the-elf game.
These are the moments I overlook. The ones I take for granted every day. But they're beautiful and telling. He does what is needed. He cares about others. He's a good manager of time. He knows how to enjoy life and have fun.
I'm grateful to have him beside me in this one simple life

Who are you thankful to have by your side?
