Yesterday was just one of those days. The littlest thing, good or bad, would set me off crying, which is great when we're attending a baby blessing, a fast and testimony meeting, receiving pictures of beautiful new baby nieces, getting ready for Tom to go out of town for work this week, etc.
Tom was so good to me all day. He helped me take a nap in the afternoon and just took care of my every need. But as it came to 8:30 PM, I was still a big mess. We decided to go to bed early so that I could try to sleep it off, but I just couldn't get rid of my tears so that I could sleep.
Finally, after an hour of this, with Tom doing everything he could to cuddle and soothe me, he got up out of our warm bed and ventured through the cold house to dish me a big bowl of mint chip ice cream and then turned on The Emperor's New Groove. The effect was almost immediate: my tears dried up and I was able to smile and laugh with my husband.
Without even asking, Tom knew exactly what would cheer me up. And it's even better that he didn't have to ask, because I wouldn't have been able to tell him what I needed if he had asked.
I am so blessed to have an awesome husband who knows my needs and wants even better than I do and who is patient with my emotional outbursts.
Thanks for everything Tom, I'm looking forward to eternity with you!
