Nine years ago today I married my first love. I was truly surprised this morning when I woke up & found a card leaning against the coffee maker (I love that Ray knew right where to put it so that I'd find it.
The card was perfect. I love funny cards & while this one wasn't funny it wasn't overly sappy sweet. (I can handle the flowy ones when I know the words truly match exactly what the person giving the card feels)
Anyway, I loved this particular note from Ray in the card:
2 years at Hilton
THAT made me laugh!
After Ray got home from work this evening we all ate dinner at home together & then made a family trip to target & shared a coffee before going to church.
I'd actually asked Ray if we could stay home from church tonight but he was in charge of leading the meeting & didn't want to back out. Even though it would've been nice to spend an evening just the two of us for our anniversary, I truly respect his decision & I'm happy he chose to keep that commitment. Ray's dedication is one of the things I love about him!
