Spoiled

Don't you just love when a simple conversation gives you great insight?

Ashish's work schedule recently changed which leaves Jordan and I alone for dinner 3 nights a week. Ashley invited us to have dinner with her, Lorelei, and Madelyn because Adam's work schedule has him working late some nights also. Of course I said yes, I love a good dinner partner! Somehow we got on the subject of husbands. It started out as a general conversation, we love our husbands, blah, blah, blah. But then Ashley said something that will always stick in my mind. She said "you know, we are very spoiled by our husbands. Not only do they love us, they show us just how much they love us by the way that they value our families. Our husbands show up and are present for everything that involves us and our families."

Wow! I've always known it but it took for Ashley to say it for me to realize that we are very spoiled. In this day and age where divorce is so high, we have something that is good, something that is solid, and something that we treasure.

So, to my husband, thank you for spoiling me! Thank you for showing up and being present for everything that involves me and our family!

Yay, I'm glad she still loves it. LOL! I haven't let Jordan open the bubbles yet but we are going to work on that this weekend!
