A gift I’m thankful for…

This past Christmas, my husband gave me the surprise of a brass statue of an African woman standing and reading a book.  He knew I had expressed an interest in this figure but once I knew how much it cost, I knew I couldn’t justify buying it.  I commented on this to someone (not him) and he remembered that and later told me that he immediately knew he’d get it for me for a gift.

I’m thankful for the gift but mostly it was his thoughtfulness and his desire to do something so special to please me and make me happy.  (He even boxed it multiple times so I couldn’t figure out immediately what it was.)
