It's nothing!!!!! But it really is the best Christmas present ever! Let me explain...hubby & I agreed that because of finances, we were not going to exchange gifts this year. Our business has taken some hard hits this year.... first Clifton's accident & the damage from the fire, then we were burglarized the night of his accident (somebody saw it on the news & knew that because of the fire, there would be no electricity & therefore, no alarms or security cameras), then we were closed for some time while he was in the hospital, then hubby closed early every day for months to help me bathe & do dressing changes on Clifton & of course, we all know how the economy is doing right now. Anyway, finances are strung pretty tight & nobody knows it better than me. But on Wednesday, I called hubby, practically in tears, because I broke my camera. read this post for explanation He sympathized but there's not a lot he can say, that will help ease my sorrow. He keeps saying "I want to get you a better camera anyway" (by better he means an SLR... my camera was already a pretty good one) & I sob, "but we can't afford it!"
He comes home from work, walks in the door & says "I had a pretty good day @ work.... let's go get you a camera." I burst into tears, tell him how much I love him but said "no, I don't want to spend money we can't afford" but he insists. Telling me he knows how much my camera means to me & that I am not going to be happy using my old, lousy digital. He says "your blog is your entertainment & you need a good camera." I finally relent ;o) & while I am getting ready, he takes a look-see @ my broken camera. It powered right up when he turned it on & it works just fine!
So he gets all the credit for being a wonderful, thoughtful husband, I'm filled w/ gratitude, appreciation & love & it didn't cost us a dime! I'm serious... nothing will always be the best present he ever gave me! *dabbing a tear away*
