I've talked and talked about how broke Sunshine and I have been. I'm not going to talk about that today. Well, not exactly.
Sunshine recently came to me and told me that we would not be buying land and building a house. He said that it just wasn't going to be financially possible. I must confess to a great sense of relief.
However, almost immediately I was struck with a great sense of sadness. As much as I did NOT want to buy land and build a house, it was Sunshine's dream. He has always wanted to build a house himself, and he wanted to give me a house that would give me some security if anything happened to him.
I told him how sorry I was that he wasn't going to live out his dream.
Want to know what he said?
"Our whole philosophy this last year has been to reduce debt. If we don't take on any more, I can work less and hunt more."
I mean, how amazing is his attitude? How amazing is this man that can find some serious Happy in the death of a dream?
This? Is why I love him.
