The purple purse.........

So - Tues. morning hubby and I were having coffee, like we do about 6:30ish every morning in the 2 chairs in our living room (unless we're out on the patio :-), and we were discussing money, budgets, etc. - YAWN - YUK - any other y word that fits here......

I assured Randy that I was living pretty much by a budget, and my final point was..................."there's even a purple purse that I want at work right now that I'm not buying because I know I just don't need it".

Fast forward to Tues., afternoon. I'm upstairs in my office at Grandiflora (which is a corner with no windows and I can't hear a thing), and when I come down stairs my two co-workers say, "you have a present" - which of course I replied "no I don't - no way"..............

Long story short, after telling me that a really hot guy came in and bought me a gift, I opened the bag.......................and there was the purple purse.

I know................OH MY GOODNESS......................Randy came in and bought me the purse and had them wrap it.

Does that bring tears to your eyes and a smile on your face - OR WHAT!?!?!

I will say, after almost 24 years of marriage, that wonderful man never ceases to amaze me!!

Of course I was feeling guilty and had to make sure that he understood I wasn't whining or complaining ( just trying to make a point - I never intended to make him feel like I had to have the purse) - our life is great, things have changed, but God is good and HE doesn't change!

PS For those of you that guessed ELIZA island - you were right. It's a beautiful place!

I heard the girls saying someone really hansome came in for you while we were coming down the stairs the other day when the girls and I came in to see you. I just thought they were joking about the UPS man coming with a new shippment. What a great surprise for it to be Randy with gifts.
