My husband’s 62nd birthday was earlier this week. In celebration I picked up a cake, had the bakery write “Happy Birthday” along with his name. Sneaking it into the house, I added a large candle that said “Aged to Perfection” and above his name I put 6 candles and 2 below his name for “62”.
Slowly he turned his head toward me and asked, “Who is Wadd?”
“Wadd?” I said.
Oh, yes, it said Wadd…not Wade…but Wadd!!
We laughed so hard.
I had checked the cake after the bakery decorated it…the lady tilted it toward me and I read it!! I looked at it as I put it on a plate and when I placed the candles by his name. And again as I put the cake onto the table.
We have had some great laughs over this. My girlfriend now calls him Wadd…but I don’t suggest you do!!
Wadd!!! I expected it to say Wade, so in my mind’s eye, it said Wade.
What do we see in our lives that are just one notch off…but we don’t notice it?
I know I need to pay better attention to the details. I’m great at the big picture, but it is the details that will get me. What have I become numb to and where am I missing the mark?
Lord, help me to see the details…and thank you that I have a husband with a great sense of humor!!
