Let Me Inspire You:
It was the first of July and my hubby kept asking me what I wanted for my birthday. I knew it was approaching fast, August 4.
There was really nothing that I wanted. I racked my brain and pondered for days and finally came up with a blue-tooth keyboard for the iPad. We found one on sale and it was done. I was thrilled with my new toy and content. I figured we would go get dinner on my birthday and have a piece of cake.
Hubby came in early on my birthday morning and told me to rest. He would get me up in a bit but not to worry about the kids. How nice, right? I got a morning off. This isn’t really out of the ordinary. He is great about helping with them on weekends so I can sleep and have a break.
Around 10 he got me up, ordered that I get dressed and come upstairs to go over sales papers. We were going to hit the back-to-school sales. YAY!!! It is my favorite time of the year. I like it more than Christmas shopping. No, really! I do!
I did as ordered, dressed and stepped up stairs. Look what I found…
I cried – like a baby!!! It was probably the sweetest thing that anyone has ever done for me! He said he just wanted me to feel special on my birthday. I did! Thirty will go down as one of the greatest birthdays I have ever had. He made turning 30 such a great thing. My day was full of smiles, laughter, and joy. Who could ask for more?
I love this man more than I could begin to ever let him know!
Feature from last week:
Praying with your Children by Thoughts on Books – a great read about how important it is that we pray not only for our children but with them. I encourage you to read this article and be inspired!
