Happy Friday, Ya'll!
I don't have a big reason for this post,
except to mush over my Honey!
So, proceed no further if you're not in the mood for mush!
Please forgive me!
You know, the 19th is just around the corner,
and I will be posting the February installment of
The Year of Romance.
But, today my Honey had to go back to work after a few days off.
And I'm just feeling mushy! You know that mushy feeling you get sometimes,
of "How did I ever get so blessed?".
That's one hard-working man!
Originally he had hoped to bang out this deck,
and maybe have a day to go fishing with a new surf fishing pole.
But, you know how one thing becomes two, becomes three?
Yeah, he's real familiar with that, too!
He built a deck with the help of his sons.
He worked with the oldest the first day, the youngest the second day.
The third day he was on his own.
The oldest called about time he was finishing up the third day,
"Will Dad help me fix my exhaust? I finally got that part he's been telling me I need."
Dad "Yes, tell him I will".
The simple 45 minute project turned into several hours,
but boy, did that Blazer sound good when they were done!
Then he went right over to help the youngest,
in the replacing of the plywood for his half-pipe.
Most of this day was in intermitten rain.
They all were working near each other and having a great time.
I know that might sound crazy,
but they really seemed to enjoy themselves!
There is nothing like a hard-working man!
Except maybe, the possibility of raising two additional ones!
And he even made Valentine's sweet for me last night,
when I was already just completely happy
that he took some days off with me!
You know, there are times in a marriage,
where you just sort of well, let's just say it,
you don't feel mushy!
But, you made a committment,
so you decide to treat them, like you hope they will treat you,
you pray, you learn to speak up, at the right time, with the right words,
and you learn to get over your need to be "right".
(And I'm just telling what he's had to go through! :)
Weeks like this are exactly why! There is a pay-off!
Next month will be the 26th anniversary of when I met him,
and a week later of our first date.
Truly God is good!
We were kids.
We didn't have a clue what we were doing,
and maybe it was better that way!
There was so much we didn't know! Still is! LOL!
Well, it's back to catching the bad guys and keeping the peace.
Which is what we use to tell our youngest when he was little,
and his Dad went to work.
We always waved good-bye!
If I'm fortunate, I'll be able to type faster than you can read now!
See you soon!
