Thankful for Each Other

The first cold morning
Where the snow glistens
The streets  crunch
You shiver leaving the house
Wishing Christmas  shopping  was done.

Stores are wagging gala music
Sparkle blinds your  eyes
Is that a trick; hoping
I will overlook those price tags?

Looking inside my purse
Know  I placed them there
You know; the aspirin, the cure-all,
Oh, I   knew this was going to happen 
Too many shoppers, need my quiet space.

He’s  going  to kill me when he sees this
The receipt ,  it’s  a mile long, better hide it
But then again, if he had come with me
Instead  of watching that stupid game
Probably  could have had less stress  and did a  better  job.

I enter our driveway , and he meets  me at the door
He helps  me, while telling me his team loss
I mourn my sore feet, he mourns his loss
He pours us a drink

Holding my hand, he walks
Towards the sofa and we put our feet  up
The remote turns soft music on, and we
Gaze into the crackling fire and sigh
Each silently thanking God for the other.


An Award, The Book Award

I was nominated  for  this book award by a person who has remained  by my side ever since  my brother  was so ill from Multiple  System  Atrophy . Her name is Ute. She is one of the  most  positive  people  I have ever  met. Make sure to check out  her blog .

Unfortunately ,  I  can’t  do as much on my  tablet  so I  can’t  make my own page telling  you  all  the things about  me through  the  questions  asked ;  but I  can say a a big thank you  to you, my friend. Thanks  Ute for  thinking  and sharing the Book Award with me.
