What did we do?
So the above picture is a card I made for Wain for our anniversary. It took me quite awhile. My plan was to go to where we got married, have a bit of a walk and back at the truck I would give it to him. Then because his Dad was our best man, I felt we could go over and visit a bit with him. Wain said he was his best friend, so I thought it might be nice to go....Well Wain had other plans, he worked all day and was very tired, I told him we could do whatever the next night, that he would not be tired,,,but oh no, he insisted. He said we had never been there before, so I was quite excited. I have not been down town for years in the evening, and it was indeed an alarming venture out. Lots of homeless people just sitting in circles on the sidewalks visiting with others, etc. It saddens and worries me especially as winter draws near. Also on the news they said the other day that 54% of the homeless have schizophrenia and have no way of getting the proper medications. I do have to say it was disheartening for me to see. I am a caaregiver, and I swear if I had a big enough home or money, they could come and enjoy a meal and suppper and friendship...
Back to the anniversary. Just before we left the house he gave me a beautiful set of rose in vaarious colors, They were beautiful, maybe a picture to follow tommorrow.
So we go to this place called Rics Grill, Fancy, shmansey, It was very nice, the decor was lovely, the food was scrumption, we even shared a desert. My husband was trying very hard, but I knew he was fading and fading fast. Soo he paid the bill and we were off to relax at home. Even more startled by the numbers of homless people now! All I could think of was how much our bill was and that we probably could have fed 15 people at McDonalds for that. We never go to places like that, so it was a treat, next time I will try for a cheaper place...It was a lovely night and there were lots of stars out. Now the romance begins at home. Right, wrong, That darling husband o mine was fast asleep within 10 minutes of making it home. I quietly covered him up and gave him a kiss...He slept 12 hours until he awoke this am, I must say my day today was a good one. Sometimes we have to go with the flow, and things don't workout exactly as you would like, but truly and honestly we are truly blessed. So that was the anniversary and then today he surprised me by getting a piece of glass for a collage that I had made about my Dad. He had to get a mirror replaced on the truck, and he took the frame and all. Wain came home and said the salesperson was kinda teary and he never charged for cutting glass for my frame. When you least expect it, I am reminded of the kindness of strangers. And the frame turned out beautiful, just the way it was meant to look. I will show a picture in a few days. I hope you all have been well.
