I'm one of those guys who never gets sick, but I caught a cold and have been feeling down. I also missed a date with my girflriend last night, which made me feel even worse.
I've mentioned I met my girlfriend, I'll call her Sarah, fairly recently, and that we've been enjoying each other enormously. The stars feel like they've lined up perfectly, and I haven't felt the need to rain on my own parade. When I told her I wasn't feeling well and had to cancel our date, she said she'd make me some chicken soup the next day. I forgot about it because people say lots of things that they mean in the moment, but don't necessarily follow through with.
She showed up this morning with a soup pot and all the makings for chicken soup. Sure, it's delicious, but what fed my soul was that she cared enough about me to do such a warm and nurturing thing. We shared some when it was ready a few hours later, and she insisted I keep the rest and return her pot when I felt better.
I was already developing poweful feelings for her based on her stellar character, integrity, our poweful chemisty, and our unusually similar sense of humor, but coming to my home when I'm sick, and making soup for me in my kitchen put her into a whole new category for which I had no frame of reference. What a selfless gesture.
Before she left, I asked her why she had gone to so much trouble for me. Her response melted what little reserve I had remaining. "Because I'm falling in love with you, don't you know that"?
My cold symptoms have lessened considerably after several more bowls, and I'm certain her tasty soup helped. What I'm equally certain about is how much better I feel after hearing why she went to so much trouble for me.
This is my first experience with chicken soup and love, and while I'm not anxious to get another cold, knowing there's more soup on the way if necessary, is comforting.
I'm not accustomed to be treated so generously in a relationship, particularly a fledgling one. Sarah has quickly become my gold standard for a partner. I'm grateful to experience a woman of such quality and depth.
I know my story isn't unique, and I'd really like to hear other people's. It's the heartwarming stories that are the most inspirational, and everyone loves to be inspired.
