Fourteen years ago today and only four weeks after I met Jason, the man who would become my husband, he showed up on my doorstep with flowers and took me out for my birthday. We went to the Olive Garden, still a favorite of mine, and we had a very enjoyable time. The only problem came when it was time to pay the bill–Jason had forgotten his wallet! I thought it was pretty funny!
That evening he told me for the first time that he loved me, to which I responded, “What exactly do you mean by that?”
It didn’t turn out to be quite the romantic evening he had planned!
Now we have been married thirteen years and have four children. It’s hard to believe so much time has passed.
Wednesday evening Jason took the kids shopping for a present for my birthday. I spent two glorious hours in the house alone. I really can not remember the last time that happened. As if that were not gift enough, my children walked into the house with this:
The kids picked them out for me!
So today is my birthday, but I have already been gifted a sweet husband, four blessings, roses, and two hours of alone time. Anything good that happens today is just a bonus!
