Day Three

I am supposed to purchase G something today to show that I was thinking of him today.  And I had every intention of doing so.  Then this morning we realized I had only gotten 2 hours of sleep, still had a fever, and probably shouldn't be going out into the world.  Hmm.  I had planned to run and get him something to bring him at lunch time, but now my plans have been thwarted!

Instead I am trying to feel better so this afternoon I can convince him to get me out of the house and to coffee.  If I do that, then I can sneak a moment and buy him what I had planned, some chocolate raspberry Godiva treat.  I don't do the raspberry things, even Godiva, so he rarely gets them (since we tend to buy a treat to share).  So I thought that getting him his very own chocolate treat for him to not share would be great!

I have been so grateful for him these past couple of days.  He's rubbed my feet when my entire body hurt so much I couldn't move.  He finished our big dinner the other night (running up and down 2 flights of stairs or calling from his cell to get directions).  He made me coffee last night because I wanted some and was convinced the hot drink would help.  He has prayed over me to ask that I feel better soon.  And he constantly gets up to re-wet my cool washcloth, even at 4 a.m.  Perhaps this is God's way of showing me what a wonderful man I do have?  Okay, God, I get it, now can I please start feeling better?  


  1. I think that would be a great thing to get for G! I hope it works out.

    I hope you are feeling better soon! And I love that your perspective on the sickness is that God was helping you see what a good man you have in G. Sometimes it takes a bad time for one partner to bring out the best in the other. Whenever I am sick or stressed my husband steps up like that, it's such a good reminder to me of what a wonderful person I am married to.

  2. Aww, feel better soon. What a nice hubby you have! I think the chocolate is perfect!!!


  3. I've got the crud too and it's a nightmare isn't it? I feel useless. I'm really enjoying your love dare posts a lot and I think it's a great learning opportunity here. Minor changes in our own attitudes reap rewards you don't even imagine.

  4. I hope you feel better soon! Look after yourself! (and let G look after you too!)


  5. Okay, so I read back a ways and want to say that I am praying for you. I haven't read Love Dare, but I hear it's intense. Is G reading it too? I just read For Women Only and feel it was so very insightful and helpful in understanding my husband better. It was also a very quick and easy read, so that was hugely helpful too. I want him to read For Men Only. I can't recommend it bc I haven't read it, but it's by the same author and her husband, and I think he'd enjoy it, as would I ;-) Just another avenue to explore. It sounds like you have an amazing attitude... And that you are being tested with sickness and such. Hang in there. Seriously, I hope you are feeling encouraged. I'm sending prayers and positive vibes and hope you are feeling wrapped up in support.
