Since I have birthday on the brain, I need to share a little secret. Really it's more of a confession. You see in the photos below two new cards. Mark's birthday was at the end of July, and I haven't signed or given him his card yet. It gets even worse! I also have his Father's Day card that's unsigned. I have good intentions of picking a meaningful card and giving it to him, but this year I just didn't follow-through. Mark was so considerate and gave me a sweet card for Mother's Day and my birthday. He even traced the boys' hand prints in my birthday card so I could remember how big (or small) they are.
I'm so glad we're at a point in our marriage that things like this don't bother either one of us. I think he knows with the craziness of our day to day routine that forgetting a card is very easy to do. He knows how much he's loved and appreciated. Thank goodness in this case it's the thought that counts.
One more thing, should I keep the cards for next year of just give them to him several months late?
