Love

I really, really wanted mashed potatoes and gravy for breakfast this morning.

I had to settle for oatmeal, instead.

But it was okay. Really.

Because, would you believe that my sweet Darren went to the trouble of driving to four different places in a valiant attempt to procure those coveted carbohydrates for me?

I'm certain I appreciated his thoughtfulness much more than I possibly could have enjoyed those mashed potatoes.

He may not leave fresh cut roses tucked under the windshield wipers of my car anymore. I'm not likely to find random love notes hidden in my work bag these days. It's been a while since we slow danced in our living room.

But, you know what? It's the little things he does every day, like driving all over town just to satisfy my crazy cravings, that really speak the loudest of the depth of his love for me. It's all I ever need. It's all I'll ever want. Thank you, Darren, for loving me the way you do...

...even when--no, especially when--I'm an absent minded, whim driven, hormonally imbalanced wreck of a wife. I love you!

Thanks be to God for those little things and for our dear husbands!

You made me hungry and I'm not even pregnant!

What a sweet husband, and I wonderful reflection on it. It sounds like a post I would have written just 9 months ago! One day I just 'needed' chicken nuggets from a certain restaurant even though we had driven by it about 20 miles previously...I had never craved such a thing before...But, he obliged.

By the way, I love your pregnancy 'ticker' at the top of your blog. I love feeling a part of your journey and watching as the days go by and you get closer to bringing that sweet baby into the world.

So sweet, Darren. SO sweet.

Doesn't that just make you feel so special? Good job, Darren!

I just noticed your "Waiting for Baby" on your sidebar - due date of May 11th. Bill and Alex's b-days are May 9 and May 10th, respectively. Maybe we'll be celebrating birthdays at the same time! :)

I remember those cravings! They never made sense, and once I got what I wanted, I couldn't eat it again. There are still some things that I can't eat to this day that I once craved!!
You are right! It is the little things that my husband does for me that means so much. They are the things that make me feel loved and special. I am so thankful that I have a husband that does them just because it makes him happy!
