I have to blog this story so that I have it to always remember. I love my husband more everyday we are together.

Earlier today when I went grocery shopping, I was planning to get some strawberries for valentines day tomorrow. Unfortunately they were out which meant I was going to have to make another trip to a different store tonight or tomorrow morning. Well, Nate called my when he got off work and I decided to ask him if he would stop at the store and see if they had any. I asked him to buy 2 packages. When he got home he gave me the 2 packages of strawberries and showed me the receipt (because I asked him to price match.) Oddly the receipt showed 3 packages rung up. He started explaining:

After buying the other couple of things we needed, he went to look for strawberries and noticed they were out. When he went to pay, the lady asked "did you find everything alright?" And Nate replied that he didn't find any strawberries. The kind little older lady told him they had some. She then proceeded to stop checking out, walked him over to the produce and showed him the few packages that were left. He grabbed the two he needed, then heard her say something like "that's too bad." He asked what was wrong and she said, I was hoping to be able to buy some to make chocolate covered strawberries tomorrow. Nate asked, "why don't you grab a package before they are gone!" She told him that she was not allowed to while she was on the clock, so she would have to wait till she got off and hope that there was a package left.

Nate grabbed one more package and headed back to the register. When the lady was finishing up his transaction he said, "these are for my wife, which package looks the best?" She pointed one out and he said thanks and asked her to set it on top of the bagging spot. When he was ready to leave she said "enjoy the strawberries, they look like they will be great." He replied "you too!" She replied "hopefully there will be some left." He said, "yeah hopefully, but you at least have one package." She looked confused and then said, "you forgot these" when she saw the strawberries he had her set aside. Then he said, "those are for you."

I kid you not, my eyes started filling with tears the second he started telling the story because I know exactly what kind of man he is and where the story was going. I am so blessed to have such a selfless husband; I am so proud to call him mine.
