Romance is Alive and Well!

Today, John walked in after work carrying flowers (the most deliciously-smelling lilies!), chocolates, and a card.  My birthday is coming up, but I was still surprised.  John and I are different in our ability to patiently wait to give gifts.  When I find a gift to give someone, it is all I can do to wait for the gift-giving occasion.  I'm getting better, but I'm still not very good.  John, however, doesn't seem to have a problem.  Even if I can't wait to give him his present, he prefers waiting until his birthday. 

So, I was a bit puzzled as to why he would be bringing me goodies before my big day.  Reading the card, I finally understood.  The flowers, chocolates, and card are not because of my birthday; they are to commemorate the fact that John has now been married for half of his life!  How romantic is that?!

Sadly, I won't be able to reciprocate, as I passed that "half-my-life" milestone already.  I guess I'll have to figure out 5/8 or 2/3 or 3/4.  :-)

Thankful thought of the day:  Thanks to John, of course!
