Dig For Treasure

The Things We Do For Love

"The Things We Do For Love." 

"The Things We Do For Love." 

I have been working with embossing my cards this week. 
My kids bought me some new 
embossing patterns for
my birthday.  I love this Victorian look.

They also bought me a new punch 
that I wasn't able to enjoy at all.
It didn't work as well as my other 
punches, it kept jamming, so I'll have to return it.

The thing is I had already thrown away the packaging
and tore up my receipt,  so I thought.  I told my husband
that I needed to return the item but I had thrown away the packaging and ripped up my receipt.  I was disappointed 
thinking $10.00 was wasted.

My husband went outside, dug out the trash bags and started digging.  I told him I would do it, but he didn't want me to.
He dug out almost every piece of  the receipt.  I said,
"The things we do for love."  I felt terrible and told him He didn't have to do it, but He wanted to.

We put the receipt together like
 a puzzle and realized after a bit, being able to see the purchases, it was the wrong receipt.
I told him how sorry I was and He was gracious.  I went to check my purse and found I didn't rip up 
the receipt after all.  

My embossing template left a beautiful impression and so did my husband.

So even though the punch didn't work.  My husband
had shown an action of love towards me.  
That really did turn trash into treasure.
