A true lover knows things about their partner he or she doesn’t recognize in themselves. And, in a moment of time they’ll reveal this knowledge thus strengthening the bond. And here is where my tale begins…..
I have been ill for roughly seven days. In the beginnings of whatever icky bacteria/virus tried to overtake my immune system I slept. A lot.Having enough of the idleness, I pushed through with the help of a various assortment of cold remedies. Right when I thought the battle was won my voice took on the tone of a tyrannosaurus followed by the sound of gravel pushing out any attempts at communication.
This morning I woke and decided enough is enough. I told my better half that during my quarantine cleaning would happen. In his infinite wisdom he didn’t say much. I made bread dough for the week. As he walked out the door for church I said something to the effect of lunch being a recipe I read off the internet. The man raised his arms in the air in victory and announced, “My Merri is back!”Apparently when I’m at peace with my world, I’m a really creative cook. Who knew? And this proves the adage (at least in the case of my husband) true: “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”
And so this story closed with a wish for you. In this season of giving and blessing, I hope you give as well as receive enthusiastic appreciation for who you are.
