I ironed his clothes. That's right. That's what I came up with to go "above and beyond" in showing love to John.
I never used to iron clothes right out of the dryer. I would fold them, or hang them up, and then we ironed things as we wore them. Part of the reason for this was our iron. It was a travel sized iron that didn't work so well and I hated using it. BUT, a couple weeks ago I went to spend a couple hours with our pastor's wife. We had some catching up to do, and while we chatted away she ironed her husband's clothes. I thought it was so sweet... but I was also very interested in her iron. I asked her all about it and the next day I went out and got myself one! I have never wanted to iron so much in my life! I was also inspired. I decided that I would start ironing clothes as they came out of the dryer, and then hang them in the closet. It took a few cycles to make a difference ... but oh the difference!
Well, honey, worry no more! I will iron all your clothes with joy until my hands are paralyzed from arthritis and I can't stand over the ironing board any more. Then we'll just be two rumpled old folks. But until that day I will make your clothes smooth as can be and it's a burden free task! I am just thrilled to pieces that I have such a wonderful man to do laundry and iron for...
