On my drive home from work today I called himself. He asked how I was and responded with “I’m about 15 minutes from home and I'm grumpy. What adult beverage do you have planned for me?”
When I arrived, those 15 minutes later, a fire was roaring in the fireplace, my favorite wine was uncorked and breathing, and a plate of cheese and crackers a la Himself awaited.
We sipped wine, munched on the treats and chatted. And we sat and enjoyed the warmth of the fire and each other’s company. We were quiet and content. The stress of the week melted away and I felt so peaceful.
Apparently Himself did as well. He said to me, “This is what heaven is going to be like times a million.”
No sweeter words has he spoken to me!
