Ricky always says that I cannot keep a secret, or a surprise, when really, HE is the one who has the toughest time keeping something to himself! That's how I got an early Valentine's Day gift today...because he couldn't stand to wait to give it to me!
I love making jewelry for other people, it gives me joy inside. That's what makes this gift even more special to me. Ricky had my Valentine's Day gift made for me! It is a combination of silver and gold, two very different things...yet together, very beautiful. I think it is a perfect representation of the relationship that I have with this man...I am a very type A personality, I want to be in control, organized, a bit of a neat freak. He, on the other hand...he goes with the flow, and his desk at his office, most days is in complete chaos, but HE knows where everything is!
It hasn't always been a perfect relationship, but we are definately at a perfect place in our lives together right now. He makes me laugh, he puts happiness in my heart, and he's the most amazing father to our four children that you could EVER ask for! We have learned that for our relationship to work and to last for the rest of our lives, we have to allow GOD to be first and foremost in our lives. This beautiful, personal, piece of jewelry put happiness in my heart today. When you think he isn't paying attention...he IS. This is one of the most special gifts I have ever received! I'm going to take a line from a blog I was reading recently: " Wherever you are at in your love life, why not look at your relationship through new/old eyes...and LOVE DEEPLY. "
