He uses his clothes until its “last breath”. I can not wait to use them as my cleaning clothes. Takes a long time for that shirt to retire. He has always been a wise spender. Good husbandry.
I told him, “I want to buy you some new shorts for the summer.”
He replied (as I predicted), “No I have enough. I do not want to own a lot of material things. I want to be minimalist.”
I was just struck by his words. I do not want to own a lot of material things. I know I married a special man. He is different. In a good way I guess. He is not too vain. His values just do not rely on material possessions.
Well, his birthday is coming up soon. I always have a hard time thinking of what to give this man who is never materialistic. Maybe a birthday card, a message of love, and just my love? : – )
