Friday, Friday, Friday!


I made it! It's here! I am so glad!

Ugh! What a week! Ten more hours, and my work week shall be over. Yay!



I forgot to mention something good that happened yesterday. On Wednesday night, I was talking to Rob and I said, "Tomorrow I have decided I'm going to stop and get breakfast before I go to work. I've been telling myself that I should all week, and I let time get away from me. But on Thursday, I'm going to! I never get anything to eat before I start my work day, and I am going to make it a priority."

That's all I said about it, and he didn't say anything much in reply.

Yesterday came along, and as usual, I was dragging my feet, and let time get away. I didn't get any breakfast. Big shock there!

So, around 8:30 in the morning, Rob called. He usually calls a couple of times a day to see how I'm doing. Or, sometimes he stops by around lunchtime, because our jobs are less than a mile apart in town. Anyway, he called and said, "Did you ever get any breakfast?"

I laughed and told him no, that as usual, I was running late. He said okay, and we chatted for a few more minutes and hung up.

A half an hour later I was out at my desk, and I saw the van pull up. Out he comes with a plastic bag. In it is all kinds of breakfast foods...bottled orange juice and cranberry juice, a breakfast "pizza," (no tomato) and a breakfast sandwich. So, I have food and a drink left over for today, also.

He only gets a fifteen minute break at nine. So, he had to rush to get there and bring me that stuff, and rush out. I felt like crying, because I realize that this kind of behavior is not out of the ordinary for him. I was smiling when he drove off, and I could see him smiling back at me as he drove away. Snif. I am blessed to have him. Like me, he has his quirks and faults. But he really does care about me and does everything he can to make me happy. He is a good man, and I truly thank God for him in my life.

Like Holli said in one of her posts, tomorrow I'm sure I'll be mad at him for one reason or another, but today, I'm just being grateful.

Well, off I go. Time for the morning rush. Hope you are having a good Friday morning! It's still raining, but at least the sun is shining in my heart some today. How about yours?

That was very sweet of Rob-it's always the little things like that, that make you feel loved and appreciated. I hope your Friday flies by and you have a great weekend!
