my very best friend in the world

Yesterday was one-of-those days...I overslept when I should have been up packing lunches and getting breakfast,
...I charred the cinnamon toast at tea time...burnt, black,
...I couldn't get my new sewing awl to work right,
...I ruined an all-leather tote, which I was about to put in my shop, when I spilled a drop of dye on it...a little stain that can't be undone,
...I also spilled drops of brown dye across the wall-to-wall carpet and the dog, totally permanent on the carpet; I'm sure it will eventually wear off of Fluffy's coat...

I was feeling a bit devastated...then my Honey {who was up super early, fixing those lunches and breakfast, unloading the dishwasher, bringing me a cup of tea in bed}
came home bearing gifts,
a bag of chocolates and flowers {an oxalis} and a hug,
and all was good again in the world.
And, he figured out that sewing awl--I had the wrong needle in--and it now works great.

  1. What a truly wonderful man you have married :) It's obvious that you have a richly forgiving, generous marriage. Thank you for sharing this lovely post!

  2. Oh my, is he ever sweet!!! Such a treasure! I am lucky to have my treasure as well. He makes my heart skip a beat! :)

    May I suggest you still sell the bag you were making but maybe at a lower price for those who would love it still *ink spot and all* and can only afford it at a cheaper price!? :)

    Have a lovely rest of the week!

  3. Hubbies are great at making the world right...

  4. It seems like our husbands always know when we need a lift. Hope the rest of your week goes well.

    God bless.

  5. Dear, dear hubby!! I am glad to hear that quote that good deeds live long - I need it to battle the one sometimes quoted to me that they 'don't pay'. In fact, I think I shall stitch it.

  6. I don,t know where the spot is, but perhaps you could make one or more leather flowers and sew over the spot, sew on a strip for a band,or make a pocket.

  7. Good for Hubby for turning your terrible day into one you will remember for a different reason! So sweet. xxoo. Love seeing you pretty home. xx

  8. Perfect. Makes all those little imperfections in the day just melt away don't they? Bless him.

  9. Yay for our wonderful hubbies!

  10. How wonderful to have a hubby to make it all better!

  11. There is something about this story that truly gives that bag it's uniqueness.

    Nothing is ever meant to be perfect - however it is still meant to be loved.

    Maybe you will use/keep the bag for yourself - to remind you of this day?? And the blessing that ultimately came out of it. I know I would do this..

    You have a treasure there with your hubby. Very sweet.

  12. Sounds like you are so blessed to have a wonderful hubby and friend, too! That's the way it should be!
    Hugs and Blessings!

    Imperfections are welcomed. Sell your tote anyway! Nice way to change up the ole saying...good deeds never go unpunished. ;)

  14. And now, all is right in the least for a little while. Savor the moment

    Awww, what a sweet post! There are days that we feel like we can do no right & those special people remind us how loved we are.

  16. Lucky woman.... and she knows it!

  17. What would we do without our wonderful men in our lifes.

  18. What a day! I hope things turned around (yeah hubby!)and today is wonderful.
