My wife got her birthday present in the mail today. When it was coming up to her birthday I wasn’t actually able to spend any money on her. But recently at work I had taken on an additional task that had really paid off for the business and at the beginning of December my business decided to recognize me with $100 in unexpected gift certificate money! Spending time together is one of my wife’s favorite things. Another is a mozzarella tomato sandwich at a chain restaurant. So I spent that $100 on a pile of gift cards to restaurants that we could go spend date night at and also 3 or 4 visits to get that special sandwich!
She loved that gift but there was another that she loved even more. She has a 90-year-old grandmother who she visits once a year. This year we were not going to be able to buy the tickets because of our tight budget. But several unexpected financial bonuses came in all in December that allowed us to buy that ticket for her!
God is good!
