just happens to be the sweetest person I know; and how blessed I am that he also happens to be my husband. Saturday was a really hard day for me. I was feeling pretty sad about something personal, which seemed to take it's toll on my spirits that day. John left to get a haircut, and returned with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, some Jones Blackberry sodas, and a few of my favorite treats. The bouquet consisted of an assortment of fall flowers, each one unique and vividly colorful. Being in Arizona has many perks, but I would be lying if I told you that I didn't miss the distinct seasons...especially Autumn. I miss the cool crisp air and the rich vibrant colors. I miss my thick slouchy sweaters and boots. I miss walking through leaf piles and hearing them crunch under my feet. Anyway, how thoughtful is my John for knowing these things, and then to pick out the perfect flower arrangement, and then to bring a little piece of Autumn home to me?
The last few days have been super chaotic around our house. I have a million things that I have to do and have been running around like a crazy person as of late. Last night we went over to the church to update our temple recommends, and then I had to stay for a visiting teaching meeting. I really just wanted to go home and get started on the cleaning and laundry that I had totally neglected the last few days; but I knew where I needed to be, and it wasn't in my laundry room. I needed to fulfill my church responsibilities; and I'm glad I did because the Spirit moved me to tears. I seriously love it when I can allow the Spirit to touch me in such a way.
I walked in the door that night just as John was putting dinner on the table. Once again, he had picked up the slack. The baby was down for the night, our bedroom and bathroom were clean, as well as the kitchen and family room. And then, after we ate, he straight away started folding and putting away laundry! Isn't he just the greatest? Seriously, I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my John. I guess instead, I would have a pretty lonely, sad, stressful, and burdensome life.
Thank you John...love you.
