Just wanted to share!
I had a rough day yesterday. . My face swelled up on Wednesday and I missed worked. I assumed it was from a tooth that needed to get pulled but turns out after I went to the dentist, it is from my jaw bone. To make a long story short, I have to see several dental specialist in the upcoming months to come up with a plan to repair my jawbone that did not grow completely. It is a hereditary genetic disorder from my mom's side of the family. Everything is really expensive, insurance won't cover a good portion of it and I am going to have to take my second job back to offset some of the cost. I was completely and totally frustrated, so I called DH. Words of encouragement and support always escape him when something initially happens and that just made me more frustrated, which I shouldn't have been because that is how he is. The whole drive home I replay in my mind again and again how many days I will have to work at second job and how I will pay for things. When I get home, I walk in the kitchen and on the table are roses with a card. When I read the card, my heart swelled with love and tears filled my eyes. The card was telling me to take one day at a time but today, sing, dance or do whatever I needed to do to get through the day. DH was standing behind me the whole time and when I turned around, I laid my head on his chest and felt the weight of the world lift. He said he got six roses to signify the six years we have been together and how we always manage to get through everything. Just love this man!
The moral of my story - Our DH/FI/SO may not always know the words to say, but they always seem to know what to do to make it all better. Always remember this when things get rough! DH fried me fish for dinner, made me a cocktail and said all kinds of things to make me laugh. Love is grand when it works!
