Gifts from Katie
To My Husband with Love
In case you were wondering…..
I notice how hard you work to make things the best they can be.
I notice how much you give, never expecting anything in return.
I notice that you never forget to play or laugh or love or make me feel important…..
And in case you were wondering, I notice how incredible you are at being a husband and still finding time to be my friend.
The above words are from a card Katie got for me. Interesting how cards, cards from our local Target department store, can contain words that mean different things to different men. I’m sure many a wife has purchased that card as a way to express their appreciation to their husband for the things he does around the home – all while they maintain a vanilla relationship (50/50 relationship). For me (and for Katie) that simple card meant quite a bit more than saying, ‘hey thanks for being a good guy’. It spoke to Katie, when she discovered it, because she wanted to find a card for her submissive husband. She found words that expressed that and did so in a way that reflected her – being a gentle domme. When I opened and read that card, I smiled. Actually I laughed and gave her a big kiss for thinking of me in the way she did. I LOVE being her submissive husband. I LOVE that she is my Mistress. It fills me in ways I cannot completely describe.
For Christmas she had more surprises for me. Three pair of panties, a couple of kitchen ‘flippers’ – the kind use to flip a fried egg, and a pair of knee pads (nice ones a carpet layer would wear) so I can clean the tile floor in comfort (isn’t she thoughtful? :).
I love her surprises. They make me happy. They fill me in some way with contentment. And of course, they serve as reminders – and will do so for many months to come – of who she is to me and who I am to her. We don’t live as equals and I would not want it any other way.
What did you get/give for Christmas that reminded you that the two of you aren’t equal? Love to hear from others.
