I always knew I wanted to marry someone as romantic as my Dad. And I did. My husband isn’t the flower, or jewelry giving romantic kind of a guy (just like my Dad), but he is marvelously wonderful and romantic in his own way. Before the children ever existed in our lives and I was still working in the office, he would pack my lunch and place it in my bag without being asked, loads the laundry when it is needed, and spoilt me with daily rides to and fro although it is out of his way.
Now blessed with kids, he is even more thoughtful. He cleans my car and place gas on it so I don’t have to, he plugs my cell phone when it needs it, and he always rent all the movies he knows I would love to see. All this he does without having to expect a thank you. Mother’s Day is about to come, and I as always never expect to receive anything grand, because I have been given the best gift of all, the daily fulfillment of love that I receive from my family.
Which brings me to my sugar contest…Tell me about the nicest, most romantic gestures that you have ever received or given. The gesture can be “received from” or “given to anyone”…spouse, friends, kids…etc.
The most touching and inspiring (for me) entry will be awarded a $50.00 Gift Certificate prize from our contest prize sponsor: Mackenzie Miller. I will of course be the sole judge, but I will definitely ask everyone to help and vote before I make my decision. This is just in time for Mother’s Day gift for Mom or yourself. I will announce the winner by Thursday of next week (May 11th).
