My husband is one of those people who always makes friends no matter what.....sooooo because of that we are always treated with company off and on, all day long, each and every day. All of our friends know that the evenings are reserved for 'us' so company in the evening is rare.
The evenings are special to us. We will surf the web...each on our own laptop ... hee, hee, we will watch a t.v. program together, read a book, knit, challenge each other to a board game or just spend the time talking about chores, goals, projects and dreams....but always, always...we will have our our small 'rewards'.
We each have our own 'small rewards'. Hubby's 'small rewards' are usually food.....or his favorite t.v. program that he follows online since we do not have cable or satellite television.
My 'small rewards' are quite simple as well but oh so very special to me. I have flavored tea and coffee specially reserved for those times or sometimes I will have a new magazine to explore....my magazine subscriptions are bought and paid for with coke reward points....love, love, love that I don't have to buy magazines anymore! Some nights will include those little, itsy, bitsy chocolate bars as a treat or a bowl of my favorite ice cream.
After a long day of working it is wonderful to look forward to something enjoyable, especially if that day wasn't.
We treasure our evenings and we treasure our 'small rewards' as simple as they might be. What are your small rewards at the end of the day? Remember to give your loved ones a hug!
