My Surprise Morning

Michael, being the sweetest husband ever, got up this morning and took off in his car. I figured he was going to the bank and then go pay bills as usual, though I thought it was earlier then usual. He was gone for way too long for doing what I figured he was doing. Selena and I went about our morning, when a car pulled into the driveway. I figured it was Michael and just left it at that. He didn’t come into the house. I went to the window to find him standing beside this:


He decided to surprise me by buying me a 2008 Chevrolet HHR LS! We had been discussing which direction we wanted to go in since his car had so many miles on it and needed new tires, new breaks and a few other things. I guess he made up his mind as to what to do. It seems he will take over our Dodge Van and let Selena and I drive this. I love my van, but nothing like a new car to make me giddy all over!

Anyway I am off to get Selena ready so we can go for a drive! I am now praying that Selena will keep her seatbelt on in this new car, otherwise she will have to go back to her old car seat for a while. She will learn right?

Michael if you read this, you are the greatest husband a wife could ever want, you stood beside me through my illness, you were there for Selena constantly during that time, and now when you could be taking this new car all for yourself, you are so graciously giving it to me in exchange for the older of the two vehicles we now own. I love you!
