Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Good Men..

I am so blessed to be surrounded by thoughtful men. My heart breaks when I hear woman complaining about the men in their lives. I also make it a habit to compliment mothers of boys when I see them teaching them to be sensitive as well as "sturdy". I am NOT of fan of the "boys will be boys" club. Anyhow, I digress.... I had a birthday this past weekend...

Marc made me dinner... The sweetest thing about this is that I know this is not easy for him...
he scoured a recipe website, found a recipe he thought I would like and studied the instructions.. The CUTEST part of the whole thing... I found him watching youtube videos about Mincing garlic, because he didn't know exactly what "minced" meant, when he read it in the recipe. That is why I felt completely loved when I ate this meal.
It means more to me than any gift-wrapped glittery thing ever. Plus it is clams and shrimp in a white wine sauce ladies, you know he wasn't making that for himself... Full on chick-food!

Collin went out on his own and bought some new clothes for me... I love them, he knew I would. He is crazy thoughtful and always spoils me on Mother's day and my b-day. If the old tale about how to know if a man is good by how he treats his Mama, then I know for sure he is going to be a great husband someday. He also spent his only day off at the movies with his Mama, we went to see the new Tyler Perry movie... I love his movies, he is the bomb-diggity..
You think he would say,,, Mom you are way too old to be sporting a batman t-shirt for goodness sake. By the way.. How old do you have to be and how gray does your hair have to be before you shouldn't be trying to pull off this look, because I like it, but as I type this I am wearing a string friendship bracelet and black nail polish... maybe I do spent too much time around kids????
And my sweet father-in-law brought me these flowers... He is the 1st generation "Good Man", thanks for teaching your boy to be such a great husband and father.

OK, so I am going to blame part of it on hormones, but I just teared up when I got to the Colin part! His own money and he bought you clothes??? What boy ever does that? And something you liked! WOW! You are definitely blessed with good men :) Oh, yeah, and I giggled at Marc watching youtube videos to learn about mincing garlic. His meal looked VERY impressive! Tell him it was pretty :)
