My husband gave me the most amazing Christmas present yesterday. A journal. He ordered it shortly before Christmas but it came late. It was perfect. I think the most perfect gift he has ever given me other than the gift of himself.
The perfect size and my favorite color. But what makes it even more special is that he personalized it in a very unique and thoughtful way. On the inside cover he typed out and inserted the following two quotes by Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou.
“If there is a book you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
~ Toni Morrison
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
~ Maya Angelou
On the inside of the back cover he printed out and inserted several encouraging Bible scriptures for writers.
It was so thoughtful and just what I needed. And he did not just hand it to me, he presented it. He told me how much he appreciates me as a stay at home mom but he knows that there is more for me to do. He said he not only supports me writing but he BELIEVES in me. You know tears were just coming down my face. 🙂
This meant so much to me coming from him because in the past when I started a blog and would write posts he was not sure how he felt about me sharing things about our marriage or family (it was this post that I had written…lol). Well for me if I am going to blog I want to be honest about things that I am experiencing and use it to inspire and encourage others. This is my therapy So after that I felt a little discouraged and hesitant about sharing things.
Recently I told him I wanted to start seriously writing and he was totally on board and thought of this perfect gift to show me his support and love.
He means the world to me!
