The Life of a Preacher's Wife.

My husband, the kind man he is, thinks of me often. But, I will say, we've been married 14 years. So, the flowers and candy don't come nearly as often as when we were courting. Oh, he does do it occassionally. Maybe once a year for no reason. Twice if I'm particularly lucky. I'm not complaining, mind you.

I've been particularly whiny and grumpy lately. I haven't been sleeping well (gee, have I mentioned that before?). I ache. It's hot. Being 8 months pregnant in this humidity isn't a day at the park. Wait, maybe it is. Anyway, today, my smiling husband walked in with a basket of irises, red and white roses, and yellow mums. Irises are my favorite! I was so excited!

I think he saw the excitement on my face, because he immediately put out his hand like he was saying, "stop".

Then he says "They're left over from a funeral we had. The family didn't want them".

LOL. Well, it's the thought that counts.

Hi S&L, that all sounds pretty nice to me. Maybe if you work it just right he will bring them often. Even if they are recycled.
Mrs. Jim would love these, I think. She almost fights for tyhe table center-pieces if they go home with guests.
Glad too Blogger worked for you tonight.
I'll bet you are really glad the baby is so near now.

Ok...I'm DEFINITELY giving up blogging! It's been a year and a few months since you've added to your blog and you've already got a ton of people replying to new posts. I, on the other hand, have been posting pretty faithfully and have about 2-3 people posting on mine. So I started neglecting it out of frustration.


Carol, HOW can I make myself as popular as you??!!!!! I've gotta know the secret!

Lauf ya!

So then maybe it is good if you dont get flowers often or your church numbers will be shrinking!
Funny post! I am a pastors wife and funerals are tough for the most part. Our church is pretty young in age so if we do one it was unexpected, ya know.
