Miracles Do Happen

I don't know about the rest of you, but after being married for 11 + years I tend to think that there are times when I talk and no one is really listening. My mother used to say, "I feel like I"m talking to a brick wall!" I now know how she felt. But, I have to say that miracles do happen and I found that MJ really DOES listen to me.

We were recently at a family funeral and I was talking to my cousin. He and his wife had recently moved into a new house and I had seem a picture of his wife's sewing machine all set up. I was asking my cousin if they had a spare bedroom that she had turned into her quilting room and he told me that she her machine set up on a table in their bedroom. I told my cousin that I wish I was able to have my sewing machine set up because right now I sew on my dining room table, which is plenty big enough, but my dining room table has become the catch all place for things that I'm not sure what to do with. "Just put in on the dining room table," is heard very often around here. So, if I want to sew something, I have to clean off the table. If you could see my table you would realize this is not always as easy as it sounds.

Apparently, MJ heard this whole conversation. When we got back from the funeral he was looking through a furniture catalogue and told me that was something that he wanted me to look at. It was a sewing table. I asked him where he thought we could put it and he told me that we could re-arrange some of the furniture in out bedroom (which is really big). So, this past weekend, we went and ordered me a sewing table. I am so excited about it. I think that this will make things so much easier for me.

And I thought that no one listened when I talked.

What a wonderful gesture! I think the same thing sometimes - "is he listening" and then surprise surprise he recalls something I said I never thought he listened to! MEN! Sometimes they really do surprise us!
