The children were out here and there today as my husband and I got in the car to go marketing. I like when he comes with me. It is so much cheerier and easier and less stressful! As we began pulling out of the driveway, I heard him suggest going for pizza first. Pizza? Alone? Now?
So we did! The restaurant offers local newspapers to look at while you wait, and we were nearly the only people there... at noon! I'm telling you, this is a podunk town with a capital P! ;)
Here's the thing... it was lovely. It was unexpected and rather wild of us (since I had Thanksgiving dinner to prepare), and it was just simply the nicest thing we've done together for quite some time.
I sat across from him as he read the paper, watching the cars go by, watching him, watching and noticing how grey his hair has grown. I was thinking how blessed I am to have this man smiling back at me over the paper, knowing he means it with all his heart.
