The Gift

Buzz and I have been married just over 43 years now, so it shouldn't surprise me that he just knows when I'll like something ... 

Without hesitation, he rescued this piece of needle art from the curb just before it went into a garbage truck. Of course I was thrilled! The colors, which really don't show well in this photograph, have that vintage patina that goes with almost everything else we have.  
I LOVED IT, just like he knew I would.
 I haven't done a lot of needle art, but enough to appreciate the work someone has put into this. 
Who wouldn't want a little garden path like this....
Yep, Buzz is almost perfect ... so I'm sure I should appreciate him every single moment of every single day.
Now to Fess up!
Has anyone else let the little things your spouse does get on your nerves?  Well, occasionally I let little things bug me even though I have an almost perfect husband... ":o)

It's usually something little, like fluffing those pillows a ridiculous amount before going to bed.  See, I told you it was little.  However, after years of this same fluffing every single night, I let it get the best of me.  
The Gift!
Just as I was about to let that catty remark fly out of my mouth, God gave me the gift of a birds eye view. There I saw Buzz as a little boy, fluffing his pillows just like he does today.  
That little birds eye view brought an instant smile to my face, and the annoyance ~ Well, you guessed it. It was completely gone!

God always knows how to change my Heart.
