Little acts of kindness

My neck was killing me yesterday!  It just started hurting spontaneously yesterday while I was at work writing a report. It was as if a kink just suddenly appeared at the base of my skull.  It was all very strange.  Fortunately, a co-worker had a rice heating pad from when her neck hurt (we are a sorry bunch, aren't we, with all these neck pains!) and she was kind enough to let me borrow it.  She even heated it up for me!  That soothed it for a little while, but the ache was still there.

Last night, my neck was still achy and I am sure I was a bit whiny about it.  But my sweet hubby, always the better caregiver than I am when he is under the weather, rubbed my neck and tried his best to make it feel better. And that just got me to thinking how lucky I am to have someone willing, actually asking, to rub my neck for me, to let me be whiny.  These little acts of kindness are part of the reason I love this guy!

So, here is a little drawing I did for my super awesome, lovable hubby!
