In this case, it really really is.
You see my husband hates spending money. I've come to find out that my love language with him is gifts. And only because, well, I do love getting gifts, but I know it comes from a place deep within his heart for him to want to spend money.
As you know he is living 3 hours away right now. We havnt seen each other in almost 2 weeks and he is missing me.
He told me last night that he was at walmart looking at the cameras. I'm not sure why, that's just weird. But he saw one for $700 and wanted to buy it for my birthday. What?!?!?!?!? He must be absolutely delirious. We don't spend that kind of money on ANYTHING. And obviously we are trying to build a house on a very small budget and we don't even have that kind of money. But he said that if he had sold his truck he would have totally bought that camera for my gift, he misses me that much.
I'm sure the thought was fleeting and he came to his senses. But in this case, it really is the thought that counts.
But man, oh man, I would love to have had that camera.
