I am thankful for bright yellow-sunny flowers in the dead of winter; flowers from my wonderful husband for no apparent reason. Funny, he came home for a little while yesterday during lunch and was just a little-snippy. Not sure what was bothering him but his answers to my questions were short. His patience was very lacking.
So what did I do in turn? I didn't nag him. I didn't get my undies-in-a-bunch. I just let it go. (I'm convinced that he sometimes gets a waft of my pregnancy-hormones ... and we all know what they can do to us girls ... well the mood-swing can be ten times worse for the dear husbands of pregnant women ;).) He told me as he was leaving after lunch that he needed to run just a couple errands after work and asked if there was anything I needed. I contemplated it. Got a a silly grin on my face... and said "I'm sure there is SOMETHING I need but I just can't think of anything."
You see in my years of living with dear hubs I've learned that sometimes moods are just that ... moods... something that can come-quickly and leave just as quickly. But my being upset that he was grumpy was not going to help the situation - and in fact, sometimes with a little silliness we can help each other come out of a blue-funk.
So at dinner time he walked in with flowers. My favorite color flowers on a January day. Not only do they brighten the room, but they brighten my heart. He simply said that I said I wanted something and so he delivered. Isn't he a good guy?!
