I Gave A Christmas Present and I Didn't Even Know It

Yesterday morning my wife cried, and I had nothing to do with it.

For the last 13 years, my wife has done everything she can to lose weight and get healthier.  In the process, she became a professional dieter.  She could tell you everything you needed to know about losing weight, but she just couldn't do it.  I suspect that much of this had to do with the programs she was using because her will and determination never faded.

For the last 13 years, I have watched my wife's health fade.  Allergies became her nemesis. Then a year ago last June she was exposed to mold.  It nearly sent her to the hospital.  For the next year, she struggled and fought to return.  It was very, very hard.

Then this morning my wife cried.  Why?  Betty has lost 34 pounds.  She hasn't been at this weight for over 15 years.  Her health?  I cannot remember the last time I saw her with this much energy and vitality.  Allergies, almost gone.  Health, ever better.

I could spend all the money in the world on her.  I could shower her with praises and accolades 24 hours a day.  I could give her gifts every day until the end of forever, and none of these things would compare to the tears I saw this morning.

What did I do?  Three months ago she asked me if she could do this.  I said. "Yes, of course, you can."  I gave her a Christmas present, and I didn't even know that I did it.

UPDATE:

Yesterday we visited her pulmonary specialist for her semi-annual checkup.  The phrases, "WOW!"  "You really look healthy!"  "Keep up the good work!"  While listening to her lungs, "Wow!  You sound healthy too!"  All vitals normal and all signs are good!
