enjoying the afternoon...

this afternoon has been so pretty for the first day of fall...
but instead of showing you the first of fall...
I wanted to share the last of summer...
and sunspots...
and blooms...
green...
lonesome here...
spending our anniversary apart...
he's already an hour later than his normal 8 hours...
overtime...
we so need it right now...
and he is grabbing every minute of it...
I just wish he would have come home early today...
but he is practical...
men tell you that they love you every day...
if you know how to listen to them...
every morning they get out of bed and head for a job that they do not like...
every time they grab extra hours...
every week when they bring their check home...
they are saying that they are doing this for you...
your family...
some women don't see that...
they want to talk and they need to hear it...
sometimes you need to listen with your heart...
his gift to me today is working over...
my gift to him would have been for him to come home early...
but since he is there...
it will be to use that extra money wisely...
to pay as many bills as possible and to stick as much back as I can...
not to waste what takes so much of him to give...
he has told me every day for 27 years that he loves me...
and I have heard every word...

Happy Anniversary, sorry he wasn't home to enjoy it, but I'm glad you have a great guy in your life that is wise, too.

Tete,
You are one lucky gal!!!
After being divorced for many years I look back and see you take each other for granted, if I am lucky to find my Prince Charming than I will be grateful every day!!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment and keep up the praying for me hopefully soon a new opportunity will come along for me.
Enjoy your day!!
Suzann ~xoxo~
