What gift can I give to a man that can see the Penguin in a pile of snow and the chick that will emerge when the temperatures rise? This man shares his refrigerator with suet cakes, flower bulbs and meal worms without complaint. He brings buildings out of the ground and potatoes. He knows the names of the stars, the clouds, the singers, the poets and the birds.
He will move a 50 foot Pine tree so it will have better light, mow around a resting Monarch Butterfly, help a turtle cross the road, give his coat to someone who is cold, drive 4,117 miles to play cribbage with his daughter, all without a second thought. He rescues bunnies, birds, bugs, bushes, dogs, cats, snakes, and lots of people, with grace and ease.
I gave him my heart and my hand many years ago.
Every day I give him my love.
He is the gift.
