Just add this to the growing list of reasons why he is the absolute best.
Every Labor Day since I was a kid, my whole family has gone to Tuskahoma, OK for the Choctaw Festival. It’s a family tradition and it’s the only time every year that we make sure to get together.
Three years ago on September 10th, my dad died. So going to my grandma Betty’s house in Tuskahoma is extra special to me now, because it’s the town where my dad is buried. I visit his grave and spend time with my family, and for some reason this is the time of year where I feel his presence most. Maybe it’s because of the anniversary of his death, or being with my family, or going to the festival like I do every year - but no matter the case, it’s a very important weekend for me.
My car is really old and unreliable, and I wasn’t able to take off work early enough to ride down to Tuskahoma with the rest of my family. I planned on riding with my little brother, but some family stuff came up and he’s unable to make it (which is totally understandable, though I don’t want to say on here what’s going on). I’ve been really bummed because I missed out on going last year, and I had my heart set on going this year. And when Jacob heard about my dilemma, he offered up his car to me like it was the most natural, easy solution to him.
His selflessness is still so staggering to me. We haven’t even been dating that long and he didn’t hesitate at all to let me have his car for the weekend - his nice car, that he’s still making payments on. I’ve been bugging him since yesterday, asking him if he’s absolutely sure it’s okay for me to take it. I think he’s kinda sick of me asking him about it.
Anyway, he’s just really, really wonderful. I’m still not sure how I got so lucky… but I’ll never stop being grateful for him.
