Today at 2:30 pm will be the exact anniversary of when Pastor George pronounced Rabu and I man and wife! Although that was 8 years ago, I can remember it very clearly. I just remember being so happy and excited to spend the rest of my life with this amazing man, who by the grace of God loves me just the way I am. He is such a blessing to me. He sees the good in me and encourages me to be all that God has created me to be. He is always loving and understanding. He is the most amazing father. What a joy it has been to watch him with our girls, they adore him almost as much as I do. :) He has such a heart for people, especially kids. I am so thankful to God for the gift that Rabu is to our lives.
So we have recently taken the plunge and purchased iPhones, and in my justification of spending the money I said that they could be our anniversary gifts this year. Rabu agreed. But the sinker did not stick with the plan. Last night he, in his very funny tricky way, says, "So I got you a gift." I could not believe it, was he kidding, no I don't think so, well with him you can never tell...so then he asked if I wanted the gift right then. Of course I did, so he told me to close my eyes and then he came over and gave me a kiss. Aww very sweet right! But the stinker tricked me, he told me he had gotten me a gift, I felt bad for not getting him one and then he had not actually gotten a gift...I was so confused. I just laughed and told him he was silly. Well a storm came through last night around 3am that woke both of us up. We were laying there in bed wide awake listening to the storm and he said kinda giddy, "so do you want your gift now?" I just laughed, I did not know whether to take the bait again or not. So I turned on the light and he handed me a bag. It was from a local jeweler, I looked inside and there was a little box with two new charms for my bracelet. One is a heart with a jewel in it, and one is a pink and white bead. So pretty. So he got me this year!! He got me a gift and I got him nothing! And you know, I am ok with that. We are going to lunch today and then spending the night hanging out with the girls. I am a blessed woman!!
Rabu I love you, thank you for 8 wonderful and exciting years and I am excited to spend the rest of our lives together!!
