Somebody Loves Me

It's a special day for Lawman and me. As of today, we're celebrating 17 years of marriage.

I reminded him of that today as we woke to his alarm at 6am. I also told him I'd do it all over again.

Apparently, he didn't need reminding. He left for work at 7am and I was still in bed. Later, as I entered the kitchen there was a nicely wrapped package on the counter. My first thought was, "Shame on him. We said no gifts or cards." That's just like him though.

So then I wondered, "Do I open the package now?" I shook it. Hmmm. It made a noise. I thought it could possibly be new perfume; I need some. I couldn't wait any longer. I tore back the paper and found a box from a jewelry store. In it was a beautiful bracelet. Individual flat stones in browns and golds linked together with silver chains. (Bracelets are one of my absolute favorite things; apparently he knows that.)

I'm wearing the bracelet as I type this morning. It doesn't quite match my green and aqua summer pajamas but I will be selecting my church attire to match.

Lawman will be home from work this afternoon and I'll have to give him a proper thank you. We have a date scheduled for this evening. The girls will be home and we're headed for the city for a dinner out.

Wow 17 years! It doesn't seem like that long ago I was in your wedding. I actually cried at your wedding because I was afraid I was losing my aunt. Funny how that happens! Congratualations! I hope DJ and I are that happy together 17 years from now!
