Today at work, one of my co-workers mentioned to me that her husband was just “in love” with my wife. Now before you assume this is some big scandal, I should probably tell you that they’re an older couple who we had over to our house as part of a Holiday get together over the weekend. He got to meet Angela for the first time and was very impressed with her hospitality, wit, charm, etc. To top that off, Angela sent my co-worker a recipe for a cake that he really enjoyed, and sent me to work with some leftover Habanero cheese that he enjoyed too, proving that her thoughtfulness and hospitality extends beyond just the event at our house.
She made the comment that Angela made quite the impression on him, but that was no surprise, that she is impressive. I said, “I know, that’s why I married her”. 🙂
It’s unfortunate that sometimes I get so lost in my own work or problems that I have to be reminded of how wonderful my wife is, but I’m glad I was today. I’m incredibly lucky to be her husband, and while I can’t say that I deserve her, I’m glad that I was able to overcome and become the sort of person she’d want to be married to.
