Lessons Learned at a Renaissance Fair
Today I was faced with an experience I have never had before.. attending a Renaissance Fair. Now I love history.. maybe that is why I was always drawn to attend one of these fairs.. which in my mind celebrate things of yester-years. I always thought it would be fun and interesting.. and I will confirm that it was interesting.. but not in the way that I thought. Being a person that likes to study people and figure out what is in their heads.. this was a buffet for my mind.. and truly sometimes I walked away wondering.. and I still am. Like what makes a person dress up and wear an Owl head.. or a woman wear a chain mail bra? I am not sure I could ever answer those questions.. and I am not even going to try. No the lesson I learned today was something much more important and it has to do with my sweetheart.Years and years ago.. when we were first married I discovered.. much to my delight.. that when ever a woman or a picture of a woman that was inappropriately dressed came into his view… he would I M M E D I A T E L Y look at his feet. It was an automatic response. Of course I was delighted to be the wife of a man who worked hard at keeping his thoughts clean. It was probably the most beautiful gift that he gave me…and I NEVER wondered for one single second if he was ever unfaithful to me.. not once.. not in deed.. not in words.. and not even in thought.. because he worked so hard at making sure he was doing all the could to watch is thoughts.Now here is the lesson I learned today…. my sweetheart would have been looking at his feet MOST of today and somehow he knew that and he never gave into my pleadings to go to a renaissance fair. Oh I am sure he probably thought it would be dorky.. but he had done other dorky things because I had asked.. he took me to a ballet once and took me on a cruise! But on this held his ground.. and today I knew why. So I walked away with a deeper appreciation for my sweetheart and this gift. I will be honest and say that I did not see one single man today giving that gift to his sweetheart… and again.. I felt lucky to have had this great man in my life and for the example he set and the love he gave to me.To the men who may read this… may you be as sweet to your wives….
To the women who are married to the men who spend time looking at their feet… you are blessed with a good man. Hold on to him tight!
