A glass of water with no ice feels like love
Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.
― Isaac Bashevis Singer
We were eating out for lunch and my husband asked me, “Can I get you anything?”
“A glass of water please.”
I wondered if he would remember I don’t like ice in my water.
He brought me a glass of water with no ice in it.
I felt loved.
My husband Nick was paying attention to small details. He likes his water with lots of ice, but he brought me my glass of water the way I liked it.
Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.
― Henry James
Sitting in the restaurant with my little glass of water, I felt loved. He could have taken a small box out of his pocket with a gold ring set with a ruby stone, and I would not have felt more loved than with my little plastic cup with water in it.
He asked if I wanted something. He got me what I asked for, and he didn’t put ice in the cup.
A small act of kindness.
A glass of water with no ice feels like love.
What feels like love to you? Please tell me in the comments, I would love to chat.
