To my surprise this morning, I woke up to the quiet falling of snow outside my window. I quickly woke Cayden up and sent him to the front window to look outside. “At what?” he asked. “Just look” I replied.
He went to front door and opened it wide. Cayden squealed in delight at the falling snow and yelled, “Is it Christmas again?” I had to break it too him that Christmas has passed, and will not be back for almost a year.
I was also happy at the idea of getting out in snow. You see, I got to try out my Christmas and birthday present; new snow boots. I felt a little like a kid again as I laced them up and did a quick little run down the driveway. Just checking to make sure they didn’t leak.
To think that I was very close to not having snow boots. Originally I had told my husband not to buy me a birthday present. I had decided I wanted to pick out a new pair of snow boots. Last year I trudged through weeks of snow in dress shoes and running shoes and I didn't want a repeat this year. I told Jeremy that I preferred to do the shopping myself as it was a “personal choice.” He wasn’t super happy about this, but let it go.
A month had gone by and he asked me where my new boots were. I told him I had changed my mind and really didn’t want to spend any money on new boots. I figured I could make it through another winter without new boots.
Low and behold, Christmas came, and to my surprise, a new pair of winter boots were wrapped up under the tree. I had to admit to Jeremy that he had made a very good choice. They were definitely something I would have picked for myself. Of course he could only puff up his chest with pride at making a good choice. I am truly blessed by husbands desire to please.
