I have to start this post with a funny little story.
My AA news motor route ran really great this morning. This allowed me to get home in plenty of time to ride to church with my family.
My husband and I were setting in Sunday school waiting for class to start. I had been trying to remember which Anniversary it was that my husband had given me a gift everyday for five days. I wrote on Saturday that my 22nd wedding anniversary is coming up on Valentines Day.
I told my husband that it was marriage Monday again in the blogging world. I told him I was going to write about my most memorable Valentines Day. I asked if he remembered which Valentines Day it was that he showered me with all the gifts.
He looked at me and said, “Oh, if that isn't a big hint”. I laughed so hard! I had to try to stifle my laugh because Sunday school was about to start. He is just so funny! I swear, I was only trying to remember which year it was.
I swear, I was only trying to remember which year it was.
Now, I want to write about my most memorable Valentines Day.
On our 18th Wedding Anniversary/Valentines Day, my husband made it very special. Everyday for a whole week I received a gift.
The first gift was a white teddy bear with candy. I had no idea that, that was just the beginning. He had never done anything like this before and I guess, I was just so surprised by this side of him.
The second day, I received my favorite cookie- It was a huge fortune cookie with Chocolate & nuts on top. My favorite cookie happens to be fortune cookies. I don’t get Chinese food for the food but for the cookies. Needless to say, I ate the whole cookie by myself. Yum, Yum, Yummy.
Day three, I received a beautiful vase of my favorite flowers. Carnations-They last a long time and they are so pretty.
On day four, I received “The Love Letter”. My husband printed it on fancy paper and put it in a frame. “I’m still looking for it”. We moved a few years ago and it is somewhere upstairs packed away in a box. I’ll post it as soon as I find it.
Day five was our Anniversary/Valentines Day. My husband made this day so special. He made me a home cooked meal of my favorite foods. Chicken Parmigiana, a salad with Raspberry vinaigrette dressing, and some yummy garlic bread. For dessert, he made me a homemade Carrot cake.
After our meal he had one more gift for me.
There is a little story behind my gift I need to share. Before my husband and I got married. He gave me a beautiful ruby ring. It was his commitment to me that I was the only woman for him. He has been a Godly, faithful, kind, loving husband all these years.
When I was pregnant with our third child my hands were really swelled, the ring was cutting into my finger. I took it off and placed it in my purse. After I had Aaron I went to find it so I could wear it again. It was gone!
My husband knew how much that ring meant to me but we couldn’t afford to purchase a replacement. (He told me once I could be more responsible he would buy me another one, hee, hee) After dinner my husband handed me a package, inside was a beautiful ruby ring. The promise that he made when we were dating, still holds true today. He has always been faithful to me. Every time I look at my ring, I remember the promise he made to me years ago when we were dating, that he would always be mine.
My husband is the head of our home, he leads our family in a God fearing manner. He is our provider and protector. I feel very safe and secure with him.
He was and is very handsome with lots of beautiful hair.
I love his eyes, they tell so much about how he feels about me.
The way he treated/treats his mom.
As we all know, the way they are before we marry them is the way they will be after we marry them. It only gets worse! These are the qualities, I watched for while we were dating.
He wasn't/isn't a flirt-
He had friends that were girls but it wasn't the norm to see him hanging around a bunch of women.
He wasn't/isn't a ladies man-
My husband has always been a very handsome man. Even when we worked together at McDonald's he had woman coming on to him. He was and is so faithful to me.
He had/has guy friends not just girl friends-
My husband doesn't believe woman and men can be best friends unless you are married to them. One or the other is going to have strong feeling for the other. This he says, is normally the woman but not always.
He loved/loves me and my son (before I got married) our children (now) and grandchildren-
On his lunch hour from work he would come to my sons t-ball games. He now is at every sporting event he can be at involving our children and grandchildren.
My husband puts his family before everything else- We are not at the bottom of his long list, we are at the top.
My husband's calendar is filled with our children's Wrestling practices/meets/tournaments, our children's dentist/orthodontist/doctor's appointments. It was never filled or isn't filled with lunch dates/dinner dates/parties/sports.
He was and still is the first man I call when I need anything spiritually, emotionally, physically or just if I think of something funny I need to share.
My husband has and will drop everything for his family. He has done this over and over before we were married and throughout our marriage. He always makes himself available to us.
BTW-A big Thank you to all the people that asked about my husband's appointment. He has to have an MRI and blood work. I'll post results when I get them. Keep praying please!
