God Thinks of Everything!
Today Les told me about a texting conversation he had with a friend using Ye Olde English wordology. It was funny and silly and it made me wonder--If he hadn't married me, would he do stuff like that? Not because he's not smart or creative, but he's not a reader. Have my book quotations and wordplays and reading influenced his type of creativity?
Then I wondered about me. Les has always encouraged any crazy idea I have to be creative in some form or fashion. He praises my writing and my decorating and my crafting. And teases me about it all to! If I were married to a less (not Les!) encouraging person, would I be writing/blogging/creating? He drags me to social events and forces me to talk to people. You know--as in out loud, not through the computer! He's had so much positive influence on the person I am today vs. the person I was 25 years ago when we got married.
God just thinks of everything doesn't he! He put the two of us together to bring out our best in each other. At least I know he (Les, and of course God) brings out the best in me. I hope I do the same for him. I want to work on that--being an encourager to him--I know he's awesome. He needs to know it too!
I know you're curious about the gash. Les has a natural affinity and talent for opening car doors right into his head! He's practiced for years--as long as he's worn glasses! This particular incident required some medical intervention and superglue. Now he's got this cute and rakish looking scar above his eyebrow. That cool colored and bordered picture was taken with my iphone using the Hipstamatic app.
