He's managed to stick it out another year. My poor husband has put up with me for 28 years now. I don't make it easy. And the past few years have been especially difficult. More accurately, I've been especially difficult over the past few years. I wasn't much better before. I guess he took those vows seriously. God bless him, he really is the best earthly thing that ever happened to me.
For all he's had to endure, I made him this card. Not the best deal he ever made.
Now I realize just how appropriate the sentiment is
Added "dimension" on the inside
I pulled out my Cricut Sweethearts cartridge, certain I could find an image on there for the occasion. Being creatively challenged (to put it mildly), I still couldn't come up with an idea. Well, at least not one I could see myself completing before our anniversary was over (yes, I waited until the last minute). I had something else in mind when I chose the tree, but it required a lot more work than I had time for so I had to tweak my "design" (yeah, that's what we'll call it). I did manage to find time to emboss the leaf and wood patterns on the tree in a desperate attempt to jazz it up ever-so-slightly. And as usual, no matter how many times I practiced stamping the sentiment before actually stamping inside the card, I still managed to mess it up. So the inside got a few layers--we'll say I added that for "dimension".
God, in His infinite wisdom, sent the perfect man for me to spend my life with. I can't imagine it any other way.
I'm an imperfect Christian woman, married for decades to a mostly-wonderful man, trying to raise two teenage granddaughters without losing my religion. I'm also Mom to two grown daughters and Nana to a super-sweet young grandson and his super-spunky younger sister. I blog a little about crafting and a lot about life. I hope to share more about the love of God and how that love can bring joy into our lives no matter what obstacles we face.
