A few weeks ago, I took off my earrings and set them on the arm of the couch until I was going to get up and put them away.
One of the earrings ended up deep in the couch and nothing we did could retrieve it.
I was heartbroken.
They weren’t real diamonds or anything, but these were the studs I wore at our wedding AND when I birthed both of the boys. Priceless.
This past weekend, the hubby tried a last ditch effort to rescue the lost earring – this involved disassembling part of the couch and almost ripping it apart.
THAT, my friends, is true love. I hadn’t said much about the earring recently, but I could tell he had been thinking about how I cried that night when the earring was lost and how mad I was at myself.
I woke up Valentine’s Day morning to a pile of cards at my place on the table, along with these…
Almost exactly like what I lost, but nicer and more expensive, I’m sure! Again, not real diamonds, just like the previous ones were not, but PERFECT for what I wanted and was missing!
That got me crying right away and then I saw another box with these inside…
And THESE are real. Oh my. I’m not usually big on “fancy” jewelry, but these just melted my heart immediately. And I cried a bunch more.
I have a GOOD man. And it is DEFINITELY the thought that counts.
True love, I tell you.
