And here we go:
Yesterday I was Tie-red!
After a long day/night of black friday shopping, we babysat my sisters kids, and her in-laws kids. It was a little bit crazy, but I love those kids so much. I don't really mind :)
On the way home, my gas light went on. At about 11:30pm, we pulled into QT to fill up.
Again, I was running on a few short hours of sleep.
Since some punk kid at our apartment complex threw soda all over my car, I decided it was time to clean the windows. It was difficult to see out of them. While I filled the tank, I asked Clint to wipe the windows.
I got back in the cars when I was done.
Clint was still cleaning.
At first, I got minorly irritated he was taking so long.
Didn't he know how tired I was?
He cleaned them perfectly.
Used a paper towel to clean off the edges.
The lines were prefectly straight.
I almost asked him to hurry.
Then I paused.
He's doing it perfect because it's for me. He wants the best for me. He's taking the time to make this flawless because he loves me.
And then I started to tear up a bit because I'm a sap like that.
Then I got to thinking a few things.
First, how often do we misinterpret other's actions? Instead of thinking he was rude for taking so long and not being considerate that I was tired, I was able to recognize that he was showing his love for me.
Second, how much better are things when we take the people we love for who they are! Clint and I are so different but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Third, patience. Be patient. Try to look at the underlying truths. Appreciate the small ways people show they care. I think there is so much more good in people than we will ever get to see!
I'm so grateful for such a kind husband!!!
Now welcome to the many faces of Clint. First, please be easy on my photog skills! This was only the 2nd time ever I touched an slr camera. But really, you gotta appreciate all his faces. Flipping through them makes me laugh!
Is the last one the best or what?!
I love my husband :)
p.s. they were all taken in about 10 seconds.
