It's the LITTLE Things

On Mother's Day, I woke up to my hubby sitting next to me.  He had been awake for an hour or so.  He said, "When you're ready to get up, I'd like to take you to breakfast."  I was shocked.  This may sound like an ordinary thing but my hubby loathes going out to breakfast {and it just happens to be my FAVORITE} so the fact that he proposed the idea was HUGE, people.  HUGE.  I quickly pulled myself together.  While I was getting ready, I noticed a card on my nightstand with my name on it.  I opened it and saw two tiny footprints and felt the floodgates opening.  My hubby altered it a bit so that it read:

May your our
new little one (or two)
bring you us
lots of happiness
and love...
every step of the way.

Breakfast was perfect, by the way.  I had my share of decaf coffee and then some.  And the french toast wasn't too bad either.

It's amazing how the littlest of things can mean so much...


  1. I think breakfast is my favorite meal out too. Glad it was so nice! Big points for the hubby for making your day so nice.
