His and Hers


You might have noticed there was one thank you left out of my Truth In Advertising post. That was intentional because this thank you is an extra special one.

From the afternoon that I first got the call inviting me to exhibit at the show, through the 4am wake ups and long evenings of display construction, to the first moments before the show, and after the disappointment, my husband has supported me, encouraged me, pushed me, and loved me in ways I didn't know I needed and couldn't have made it through without.

After nearly 18 years together, the man can still surprise me. He does so much for us in our daily lives and just when I think he has done all he is going to do, I come home to a house full of snowflakes. I had know idea that such beautiful creations were hiding inside my systems engineer. The other day, I sat finishing knitting a pair of socks and watched as the air passing through the house spun and twirled the paper pieces. It brought a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart. And I thank him for that too.

Sometimes I think thank you is too small a word. It doesn't feel like *enough*. There is a fullness in my heart because of him and that fullness/happiness/love/caring/joy is too much for just a thank you. I truly can't thank him enough for what he has done, always does, and will do for me. I am a lucky lucky girl to have my Ronboy.

And whether he reads this or not... everyone should know... he is a superman and I couldn't do it without him.

How sweet! Such a simple gesture, but one that left a big impression.

The Wild Rose
Wendell Berry

Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart.

Suddenly you flare in my sight,
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only shade,

and once again I am blessed, choosing
again what I chose before.

Your husband sounds like a wonderful man! It makes me so happy whenever I learn that someone awesome has found an equally awesome partner. I think that as artistic types, it's something we, especially, need -- that unending love and support. :)
