Happy Wha?

After a delightful lunch with my super fun husband I dropped in on a nearby Walgreen's to pick up a bottle of common oil in order to use it for a not so common use as prescribed by my doctor who has a ton of alternative healing type methods. After I perused the aisles a bit, completely avoiding the packed Hallmark section, I made my way to check out. We made some small talk about how she doesn't like to talk on the paging system and how she forgot to cancel a customer service call to the liquor department moments before I stepped up to the counter.

As I leave she calls out to me, "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Many heard her. She turned chocolate box red.

"I'll have one of those, too!" I replied.

She finally spit out the words, "Have a nice Valentine's Day."

It was rather funny. She has a delightful personality. Maybe that's why she doesn't like talking on the pager system too much.

However, I am thankful that I am married to Matt and that I get spend today with him and every Valentine's Day AND Thanksgiving with him for the rest of my life. He is my delight and love. He is the one that continually points me toward Jesus and I love how we strive together to be a family that is obedient to Him. I am thankful for the blessing of Matt in my life and all the ways he loves me. What a funny little moment that was embarrassing to one person but was a reminder to me that not only should I be thankful for Matt today, but everyday. It's hard to imagine life without him... and sometimes to really remember life before him. It feels like we have known each other forever. It's a wonderful feeling.

I love sweet post-it notes from God, if you could call them that. Moments least expected are ones that impact our whole day and remind us of the great gifts and blessing God bestows on His children.
