Everything has been going good with the Dare. Today I am supposed to "become my spouse's biggest fan...and share with him how glad I am about a recent success he has enjoyed."
After I read the devotional and dare, I thought really hard...trying to think of what Michael has been really proud of lately... Where had he really felt successful? Then it hit me--his "trophy deer" from this past hunting season. He is so proud of that deer, and the taxidermist is almost finished with the mount for him. So I informed him that when the deer mount is finished to let me know and we will have a mini-celebration..a welcome home/hanging party, of sorts. The celebration will be complete with Michael's favorite meal and some sort of homemade dessert. At first he thought I was mocking him, since he has never known me to be very thrilled over mounted deer heads...but I assured him I was proud of him for harvesting such a nice deer.
I think his head may of swelled a little.
