    Very fancy-looking wheels, Ronni.
    You can scoot about town in real style now.
    Congrats on the auto and your birthday !

    I KNOW!!!! Motormouth that I am, I was in fact completely speechless! I burst into tears and the salesperson couldn't hand me tissues fast enough, Ron and him laughing the whole time because I kept trying to talk and just couldn't manage to get the words out!! It really was funny. :D

    And the car OMG, it drives like a dream!!!

    He's such a sweet man, and I'm very lucky. :heart:

    I had much the same reaction as you Ronni when my eldest son surprised me with a week away in Cologne. I couldn't string two words together that made any sense whatsoever.:smt120 Just as well we don't have weak hearts isn't it? ;)

    Y'know, we just had that conversation!!! ;)

    AND the one about him having raised the bar pretty damn high for himself too, between this for my birthday, and a beautiful heart pendant studded with diamonds and rubies that he gave me for Valentine's day! :eek:

    We decided the smart thing to do is to hit the re-set button and start over! ;) :heart:

    Gail he does. :heart: And as much as I love it, I'm having a big of trouble getting used to it too. After such a long, abusive marriage, I struggled with self-worth and self-esteem issues for ages and spent a lot of therapy time building back up.

    But 30+ years of being indoctrinated into the mindset that I'm not valued, and therefore not worth much of anything...well, it's difficult to overcome. And I've come a long way, but even so, being valued the way Ron values me, and being shown in every way possible that I have worth and goodness and that I'm NOT a piece of @#$% to be ridiculed and belittled is STILL a hurdle sometimes. He knows my history thoroughly, so he knows that when I struggle with the things he does for me, the kind and generous way he treats me, that it's no reflection on him, but rather on my own baggage and issues. And he's patient and loving in spite of it all and reassures me that he's not going anywhere and to get used to it, because it's not gonna stop!!! :heart:

    @Ronni bless him mate because he's totally devoted and how your speaking I had the same issues with my first hubby besides things he did to me and I used to feel like i'd come out the gutter as the saying goes and like yourself had 3yrs of counselling to try and help me and now I've been with my hubby 18yrs and he's golden and I used to feel the same about being spoilt and presents...Ron knows your past and won't hold it against you and all he wants is to see you smiling again...I :heart: the man myself ;) and never met him for how he's treating you [​IMG]

    If I missed your birthday totally...happy belated birthday [​IMG]
