My utterly sweet husband  
My dear husband Dave had absentmindedly scheduled a concert on our anniversary night. He just didn't connect the date at the time he bought his ticket. Sounds like something I would do, these days, so I wasn't on a trip about it. I just pointed out the conflict and then said we could do something on another night. It's our tenth anniversary, so we do plan to do something as special as our tight budget allows.

I wanted him to go to the concert since I know he really wanted to see this group and there wasn't another performance he could have gone to. He offered to sell the ticket but I urged him not to.

Unbeknown to me, he sold his ticket so he could be with me that evening.

I am so touched. I do hope he gets another chance to see this group in concert.

I never wonder why I married this man!

It's coming up--feb 2nd--and thanks, I'm sure we will!

It reminded me, just a little bit, about the story of the couple who each sacrificed something dear to buy the other a gift--the husband gave up his treasured watch to buy beautiful combs for his wife's beautiful hair (the kind that hold it in place, not the kind you groom with), and she cut and sold her long hair to buy a golden chain for his beloved watch.

Our case wasn't quite so grand or tragic, but the same thought was there. The point being, the love behind it all is more valuable than a concert or being together on one particular day when we're together all the days of our life.
