|My husband, dear, sweet man, brings me gifts often. My favorites are the small ones that speak of how he listens to me, pays attention ... like a mention on Facebook of how much I like Corn Nuts and Moon Pies. I love that he cares about me in such sweet, kind ways! I am blessed! Thanks for reading!|
