This might be too much information for some, but I thought I would share. Tony was in New Mexico for 2 weeks, working. He had to be there during my birthday, even. It was hard on me because our schedules were off, when I would call he was busy working, and he was sleeping at odd times when I was awake. After a few days of hardly speaking more that a few moments to him, I broke down! I texted him that I was not OK and needed to talk to him. He did call at about 2 am when he got off, and I was still tossing and turning, not able to sleep. It was nice to talk to him and he made me feel better. Well the next morning I woke to this text (edited slightly for general audiences!):
"These are the things that I love about you, you're smart, sexy, nice, thoughtful, understanding, great wife and mother. I like the way you make me feel about you, it's the same feeling I had when I first met you. You do everything for me and let me do what I like to do. I think about you all the time, I just don't tell you. There are a lot more things I love about you......(edit)...........
I love my wife more than anything in the world and I am sorry I don't show it. You're the best!"
Wow! For those of you who do not know Tony, he is a man of few words. He, himself, does not like praise, especially empty praise. He is not one to really praise others or say a lot so this was really hard for him, I would guess. It sure made my day!
