Life is comprised of so many special moments and sometimes it can be the littlest things that make the heart swell!
My husband had mentioned awhile back for me to save a certain date on the calendar. He said that he was taking me out to celebrate. I asked him what we were celebrating. He smiled as he said, that I would have to just wait and see, but that the date held a lot of significance.
Well my curious mind went into overtime as I was wondering what was so significant about this date. I really had no clue! As the time grew closer I got more curious but of course no clues were given. Finally the day arrived. Not only did I not know why the date of the day was so significant, I didn’t even know where we were going!
As we were driving down the road he took my hand and asked me if I really had no clue of the significance of the date. I said “Yes” and he was silent. Then he said, “The reason for celebrating this very significant day is…” and it went silent again. Can you tell that my dear husband loves drawing out the suspense? It went on like that for a little until finally he spoke words that reminded me again of why I love him so. He said, ” As of today and so many hours (he gave the number of hours!) I have known you for exactly half of my life!” I was without words!
We had a wonderful time at a outdoor Jazz concert and then went to a delicious Japanese restaurant. Both of those things were great, but what stuck in my mind as I went to bed that night was those simple words from his heart. What will stay in my heart is how special he made me feel.
Making someone feel special doesn’t have to be about giving them something big and pricey. So often it is more the words of love and appreciation spoke directly from the heart!
