Jeff is not one for big displays of romanticism so this really caught me off guard.
Last Tuesday, Jeff had a fund raising event at a local restaurant called Armadillo Willy's. They give 20% of the proceeds to the choir program. A number of choir families and girls from the choir were there to have dinner. I wasn't looking forward to it because these things usually turn into a hectic dinner for me, chasing Miles around, trying to keep him out of trouble.
But Jeff didn't need to do too much shmoozing and we were able to have dinner as a family.
Somewhere towards the end of dinner, one of the girls from his choir approached our table with a gift bag and a lovely note. The note itself got me teary but then I realized that the girls were all circling around and were about to sing to me.
I barely controlled myself from becoming a crying mess as they sang a wonderful sweet love song. (Jeff asked me if I thought the girls did a nice job and, truly, I can't remember because I was just trying to keep it together.)
Miles was confused by all the hubbub but thought it was pretty neat and I think Jeff and his choir were pleased with themselves for reducing me to tears.
