Reminders

This past week I was reminded why life is good...better than good.

It had been a rough week, I was having weird moods and just plain feeling down.  And then D and I had a bit of a tiff... ok it was a big tiff... but one that had us both realizing some communication issues that we were having.  Some things we were taking for granted.  So over all it was a good argument.
Then on Thursday morning, as I was still trying to come to grips with some of those things I wish I could change about myself (you know the kind, why do I get jealous with no reason why am I so prideful and really why can't I just get in a good mood??!...blah blah blah), I got a text from Z.  It simply states "Hey I love you momma".  Ok well if that doesn't turn your frown upside down, I don't know what will.  I told him thank you and that those were words I needed to hear.  He then asked me if I wanted to go to lunch.  What an offer!  So I picked him up we went to a favorite Mediterranean place and have Shwarma's and stuffed grape leaves and hummus... YUM!  This kid gets my taste in food!  We had such a great time just laughing and talking and I got to listen to how excited he is about his work in church and the impact it's making on himself and those around him. Oh!  And HE paid.  The best! ;o)

Then that evening my D and I got to go out to dinner, just the 2 of us.  Again, such a nice time. We too laughed and talked and just enjoyed each other's company.  My D is one special man. Sometimes I don't tell him enough how much I appreciate him.  He's the guy that does anything for anyone.  He's the guy that stops and helps the person on the side of the road with the flat tire, he helps the guy that just passed out in line at the amusement park when everyone else just looks... he's the guy that acts first and then thinks.  The trait I love the most and dislike the most. ;o)  But I love that he's that guy that would come to your rescue when you need him, when no one else will.  He's the guy that after having 2 teenagers said, yes adoption, not once but twice.  The guy that never thought about having children.
And he's MY guy.  

Yes, I was reminded why I think my life is better than good.  God has blessed me beyond belief. Thanks God!

I love this post - it brought tears to my eyes to hear of your love of your husband. I think we all take our spouses for granted from time to time. It's good to reflect on the qualities that made you fall in love in the first place.
