This may sound very materialistic…but it’s not meant to be. Paul made me feel very special recently. Back in November, right before our wedding, I had my iPad in our bathroom and grabbed the case and it fell out….screen down…and onto tile :( only the corner cracked and everything worked fine. I was really upset but put a screen protector I had for my cell phone over the crack and got over it. Until a month ago when my iPad started having seizures and acting like I was touching the screen when I wasn’t. It was nuts! Finally went to apple store and they reset it. He told me it was likely software issue and something they would have replaced for free, if I didn’t have the crack. Because of the damage it would be $200+! We only paid a little more than that when it was new so I said no thanks and sulked home. The reset didn’t do anything to improve the seizures.
Here’s where my knight enters. Without any lure from me, Paul suggested we buy a new iPad for me and he’d take my old one! I said I’d love that but kept asking if he was sure. He said yes. Without any reminders from me, he went on a day off and picked it up for me. And the newest model!
So I’m not saying I love him even more because he bought me something awesome. While that REALLY helps, it’s that he put my needs/wants ahead of his and bought it to make me happy. He could have offered to get a new one for him that I could use too. Instead he’s taking one for the team and giving me the nice one. Without me begging, coaxing or guilt tripping.
Paul is constantly putting my needs before his and this is just another example of that! I’m so lucky :)
