Listening to the Moon, Stars and the Sky

Listening to the moon, star and the sky

That is what I will be doing for the next week.
Listening
Steve and I are going away for a much needed vacation
We celebrated our 25th anniversary this year (Nov 14) and we told ourselves we would go somewhere fun where we don't have to think about anything.

 He is my Greek God with a Beer

He's a good man.
When he was younger we would be strolling along and someone would stop him and they would ask him "Did anyone tell you that you look like the Statue of David?? (In the beginning we would laugh but then it got a little old.) 
Believe me the man has the same body that he had when I first met him
Me not so much........

So we are going to the Hard Rock Resort in Punta Cana. ( My Dad is going to stay at the house with Lulu, We wish we could take her along)
Sooooo
I will be listening to the moon, stars and the sky.
And think about how grateful I am to have been with this wonderful man for 27 years. (including our dating days)
He is my love and my light. He can also be my frustration (German stubbornness)

Things I love about Steve

 He works hard and plays hard 
He understands me
He lets me be me. 
 All he wants is for me to be happy.
He has made my dreams come true in so many ways.
He is a good Father to our Daughter.
He is a great Grandfather.
He takes the trash out without me even asking him
He can build and fix anything.  So talented
Everyday he tells me he loves me at least 2 times a day.
He makes me laugh at least once a day.

Now I could make a list of the other things that drive me crazy but I won't.
I choose to think of the positive today.

So I will see you in a week.

And forgive me for rambling on about my husband. I can't help myself!

Have a lovely, fullfilling week!

Do something you haven't done before!!!!

Prints of Listening to the Moon, Stars and the Sky are on in my Etsy shop now.
Come and visit at shfoust.etsy.com 

(I just showed him what I wrote and he asked......"How many people are going to read that")
He had a smile on his face and asked me if I wanted to go out to dinner......Things you got to do to get the man to take you out to eat.
