It’s day two of my two week celebration and the hubs has delivered again. Today’s note was larger and made me laugh as I read:
“Today’s gift for your fortieth celebration will come as we retire. All your fantasies will be filled with passion and desire. Blog it to your friends, in disbelief their heads will be shaking. For tonight you have an hour in bed with nothing but talking.”
I still laugh as I’m re-reading it and typing it. I fell in love with Bill’s sense of humor over 16 years ago and he still has the uncanny ability to make me laugh. It’s really funny since most nights Bill falls asleep before his head hits the pillow and has been known to fall asleep even while I’m praying. Is he tired or am I boring? To talk to me for an hour, at night, is a huge sacrifice and will go down in history as one of my favorite gifts ever. The hard part is that I’m absolutely exhausted tonight and I’m not sure I could stay engaged in an hour conversation myself. The irony is not lost on me, I assure you!!
I couldn’t resist including my christening picture that my mom had framed for me as an engagement gift many years ago. It’s one of my favorite baby pictures and I still have the dress that I am wearing. “We’ve come a long way, baby!”
