I have the best husband in the world [Jul. 6th, 2008|03:01 pm]

[Current Mood |lovedloved]

The mail came late yesterday, so I didn't get it until this morning. In it, I found a package sent by earthenwood. It contained a small box and a note from Ferrett instructing me to retrieve a letter hidden in the house.

The letter left me with tears streaming down my face. It explained that during each of the six weeks he is gone, a beautiful piece of art will arrive in the mail. It's a token of his love, a reminder of how much I mean to him during this time when he is so busy and expanding his horizons so vastly.

Within the box was this goddess elemental tile:


It's beautiful, and I'm already considering how to mount it. Of the goddess elemental tiles Melanie makes, he chose air because of the wings. He gives me wings so I can fly.

The ribbon tying the box is a work of art itself:


The ribbon is a lovely green and brown cording, and the pendant is a spiral goddess:


I am wearing it now, a reminder of the love that my sweet weasel has for me. I am a lucky, lucky woman.

Something I should have been doing when I go in the road. Very cool. High marks to your mate.

Very lucky, indeed! In fact, just about as lucky as he is to have you. :-)

You are indeed!

I am sending my husband up when he gets home for Husband Boot Camp. Seriously, I will pay for this treatment and training.

I'm sure the gift is also a reminder to himself what a lucky man he is.

Ferrett is smart enough to recognize how special you are, and even smarter to let you know in such a wonderful way how much he loves and appreciates you!

It was especially fun to be sitting there with earthenwood when this post popped up on my friends list (a bunch of us were at Randy and Sheryl's) and being able to tell her in person how amazing her work is.

(You should see the tiles she was working on in the chaos of everyone hanging out, too!)

Wonderful gift for a wonderful lady, given out of love... what a great addition to the day. :)

That made me tear up just a little. In a good way, of course. n.n

That's amazing. So simple, really, and yet... truly amazing nonetheless.

Of course, the week two gift has not arrived, and already I'm, like, dude, where's my stuff?!

Gratitude turns to expectation at lightning speed. ;-)
