“When he proposed to me on Christmas Eve.”

“As a little girl, I always dreamed of owning a horse. I took horseback riding lessons and even leased a horse for a year, but never did I have a horse to call my very own. Fast forward about 20 years, I’m married with two small children, a husband (who as a cop, works crazy hours), a full-time job of my own and not enough land nor enough discretionary income to own a horse. Truthfully, as an adult, I had never even considered owning a horse. It was a dream of the past that I never thought would ever come to be a reality. And then, Christmas 2011 changed all of that. When it came time to open my Christmas present, my husband took me out to his car where, out of the trunk, he pulled a feed bucket, horse brushes, and a halter. With my mouth wide open and a confused look on my face, he confirmed that his gift to me was a horse. As if that wasn’t enough, he had been arranging this for months. He found a pasture close to our house for us to keep the horse for free. He found a low-cost, trusted horse from a friend of a friend. He had done all the legwork so I could have ‘time to myself, and a place to de-stress and be a kid again.’ The gift is the gift that truly keeps giving. Every time I am able to ride, I feel carefree and reenergized. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more thoughtful gift.”

“Last Christmas, Pat surprised me by building me a vanity area in his bedroom because I never had a place to get ready when I stayed over at his house. It was special because, not only did it show me he listens to me, but he also made me feel like his home is my home, too -- which now it is since I moved in in May!”
