It also meant he was so sweet about having to cancel our Monday plans, which he was SO excited for: waking up early, breakfast out (his favorite meal of the day), and a day of walking and picnicking at the state park. :( I know that really bummed him out but he didn't say anything, he just continued to take care of me.
Thankfully my stomach virus left town on Tuesday. Then, yesterday I had a really big disappointment and John did too. I don't really want to share details, but I have to tell you what my amazing husband said to me when I felt disappointed in myself. "It's not you, God does it... you're just the vessel... and God made the vessel... and you are perfect." Those words meant so much to me in that moment.
To top it all off, my man really means what he says. Because when I woke up at 4am in excruciating pain because of this stupid chronic disease called endometriosis... he didn't complain at all that my crying was keeping him up. He went straight to the kitchen and got medicine and juice. Then he went to the closet and got my heating pad and plugged it in and situated it. I never had to move. And he rubbed my back until the medicine kicked in and I could fall back asleep....
I love my husband so much. I can't imagine what I did to deserve such a man. He really is prince charming... and he's all mine! Sorry Ladies! ;)
PS - I know some of you might be gagging right now, but God gave me this man and I reserve the right to brag on him! :P
