Well, I have to say that everyone counsels you not to have high expectations in marriage or you may be disappointed. I don’t think I have a huge problem in this area, but on Valentine’s Day I have to admit, that no matter how hard I try, there are a few things that I would like to happen. This being the case, I thought it was a little strange that when February 14th rolled around, Rob handed me a card and made some comment about how he hoped I wasn’t disappointed that he didn’t do anything else….hmmmmm. What do I say to that? “Oh, it’s no big deal.” Or, “that’s fine” – the typical girl phrase.
Well, I got to work and after an hour or so, my student came in and told me I had a package in the office. Of course, I rushed out and found a gorgeous arrangement of tulips with a note telling me where to meet Rob for dinner after work – a great restaurant in Old Town Portsmouth we have been wanting to try out. I showed up to find him in a little corner of the restaurant beaming because his surprise had been a success.
Of course, he would still be a wonderful husband without doing these things, but it’s very meaningful when he plans ahead and continues to show me that I am special to him. Sorry if it sounds like I’m bragging – I don’t do that often on this blog, so once in a while I hope that’s ok.
If anyone else wants to brag on their man, feel free - or just make a nice comment about mine!
