Since today is a local holiday, Tobie had some friends over to play board games and they were pretty much up all night gaming while I was at work. What surprised me was the fact that Tobie had stayed up to wait for me to get home from work, which was closer to 11:00am quite honestly since I had a late start to my work shift last night.
It's a rather touching gesture, although ultimately one that I really don't recommend anyone do. In the end he was only awake long enough to see me arrive and to kiss me hello. Now he's fast asleep and I'm trying to wrap up my blogging quickly so that I can join him in bed and we can have one of those rare moments of being able to sleep at the same time.
When your schedules don't quite line up and your work week often feels like an endless game of playing catch-up, such moments remain rather endearing.
And relationships thrive on little moments of dedication like this. Big gestures are great - we all love those, but more often than not it's the little things that really make a difference.
