Today, husband is celebrating his 37th birthday. He told me this morning that he never liked birthdays, mainly from the attention that he gets from them. What a birthday scrooge, right? Haha. I kid.
Last Monday, we partially celebrated by going to the spa. I was supposed to book Suriya which has really great reviews but was a little steep on the price. I thought about it, went practical and since we were already in Antipolo, we went to Callos Spa.
It sits in a quiet place in Antipolo, nothing fancy but its quiet and we sure could use that. I knew he was particular about massages, so I was relieved that he was quite satisfied with the one at Callos. The signiture massage was Php 400, which is “carrybells” compared with the whopping Php4600 package I was planning to get at Suriya! I still want to try Suriya, but maybe next time.
Aside from that, I’m thinking of non tangible things I can give to him as gifts, and I’ve thought of these:
1. I will TRY not to sweat the small stuff. Its true, women are really from Venus, men are from Mars, and if I keep wanting to change my husband into someone I want him to be, I might as well just marry a woman. Men are different in so many levels and I must accept that.
2. I will be more supportive in all aspects: career, family decisions, finacial outlooks. This means holding my comments and “perspectives” if they are not constructive.
3. I will be more practical. Now this is hard. Haha. But so far I think I’m doing good in this department.
4. Be more proactive with praying, reading the Bible with him and my son. He is the priest of our household, so I will be the priest’s secretary, reminding him of the household’s spiritual activities.
Happy birthday, my love! I thank God for you for you are a good father and husband.
