Day 213: Named A Star For My Wife
When my wife and I got married, I told her that I would do everything in my power to give her whatever she wants in the world. I think, as a husband, that should be exactly what my role entails. Anything that she (and now my daughter) wants I will do my damndest to make sure she gets. A few times since we have been together, my wife has mentioned that, although she thinks it is somewhat corny, it would be cool to have a star named after her. She probably thinks that I never picked up on these mentions, but I have, and I have been waiting for the right time to do it. I guess now I am setting a precedent that I will have to give her not just what she wants in this world, but also in space too. This is because today, for my random act of kindness, I purchased a star and named it after my wife. I didn't call it Lindsey though, and it isn't necessarily "her" star. I named it Pookie Hanaa which is the nickname that Lindsey's father gave to her when she is little. The star is part of the Canes Venatici ("hunting dogs") constellation, which I thought was the perfect constellation because Lindsey's dad was such a huge lover of dogs. From now on, when she looks at the right part of the sky at night, she will be able to see her dad's star shining down on her.
