A Tear Jerker

by adustyframe ~ June 26th, 2007

Lee sent us each a letter today.

James’ letter said, “Give Mom a hug and tell her thank you for taking such good care of us.”

I’m sure all Moms everywhere can understand how special getting a thank you is.

I was touched that he pointed out to James that I’m doing a good job.

I needed that.

Part of his letter to me said, “Thanks for keeping everything together. It’s because of you that James still loves me. I want to tell you that you are very special to me and James. You have so many good qualities. Thank you for loving me.”

I sat on the couch and bawled. What a blessing for me today to have my husband say thank you and let me know how much he loves me.

To say I needed that is a bit of an understatement.

And for those of you who tell me I’m so strong, I’ll let you in on a secret! Part of my tears included this, “God I don’t want to DO this anymore. I just want this to be over.”

I’m not strong but God’s strength and grace are carrying me day by day.

When I visited him this afternoon, he said that one of the inmates he works with in the kitchen told Lee that God gave him me for his wife specifically.

He told Lee that from the things Lee tells him about me, I am just the right one for him.

That was another “I needed it” moment. To know that he tells others things that I do for him made my heart very glad indeed.

    Wow, that IS a tear-jerker. Isn’t it amazing how statements like those come EXACTLY when you need them? It’s a testament to the strength of your marriage that you and Lee know when the other needs to hear how important they are and how much they’re loved.
