Talking Birthday Surprise

Today is my 54th birthday. Sunday evening we had a get together with a few family & friends at a local restaurant. I opened my cards & presents, and then I got the best birthday surprise & biggest shock of my life. Wrapped in my last present was keys to my brand new 2019 Ram 1500. My wife & daughter purchased it for me. To say I'm blessed would be a understatement

She went to all ends to get what I needed. She research the trailers I tow and made sure I had enough truck to take care of it.

After being together for 30 years, my wife knows me better than anyone else. She as seen the trucks that I have purchased over the years. What she didn't know, she researched. She went as far as finding out all the weights on my trailers that I pull and made sure I could easily pull them all. The only thing she didn't get me is a 4x4, but I can live without that, because I already have a another 4WD truck. I put on about 50,000 a year traveling around the Houston area for work. She just new I needed something to slow down the miles on my other truck.

PS. When your wife & daughter spends about $45,000 on a birthday present, complaining never came into my mind. Grateful & Blessed is what I felt
