A Big Surprise

My wonderful husband is not a planner, he likes to do things on second notice. So what he said to me last night was quite surprising. We had made plans to spend the afternoon and evening on Saturday having our "date" night. His sister offered to keep the kids overnight and bring them to meeting here on Sunday. All was well and planned. As we ate supper, he informed me that he was going to have to make a delivery to mid-state Arkansas Saturday and we probably couldn't do what we had planned. This has happened several times in the past year or two, so naturally I was dissapointed and said why do we even plan this kind of thing anyway. In his next breath he said, I talked to Dad and he'll open for meeting and we'll go on up to Hot Springs after making the delivery and spend the night!! He had the most adorable grin on his face and I felt like such a fool, when here he had planned something even better!!:) What a Wonderful Surprise, the first one like this in almost 10 years!! Even better, this is a great way to celebrate my b-day just a little early. Now I just have to get my house cleaned and ready for meeting by Saturday a.m.. Live is always filled with surprises, I always thought those came from my kiddos!! Hope everyone has a great weekend.
