I am all for the [thematic] gift. Or, put another way, the gift with some thought behind it. My husband could have had a dozen roses sent to my workplace today or he could have given me a piece of jewelry [not really his thing]. But instead, on Sunday he applied this to a spot in our home:
On Saturday morning we went on a breakfast date. Tonight, our family of four will enjoy Qdoba’s buy one/get one entree deal. And I’m happy as can be about the whole thing.
Getting back to the thematic, I’ve picked out a word to focus on this year, in regards to my husband. The word:
Why? Because peace means a state of harmony. And that’s what I wish for him and for the two of us and for our family as a whole. He knows I love him. He knows the depth of my loyalty. Yet I feel the next step, the place of depth we need to head, is peace.
So I made him a gift to hang in our bedroom, signifying this word. I won’t be purchasing a Hallmark card, because though eloquently worded, they never say exactly what I would.
