One day I Will Miss the Towels on the Floor, the Water Spots on the Mirror and Your Horrible Morning Breath in My Face
|The "stuff" that matters. Love.|
Anyone who is married can understand that there will come a point in time when the little idiosyncrasies that you spouse has...well, will annoy you a bit. It is ok to admit it.
Yesterday, while I was picking up the towel that Mike forgot on the floor and after I cleaned the bathroom mirror speckled with a thousand water spots for the 2nd time of the day, I found myself a little put off.
As I was grumbling to myself, God smacked me on the side of the head. I had the overwhelming thought that I would surely miss all of these things if he weren't around. I would miss the occasional towel on the floor, the water spots on the mirror and the horrible morning breath. I would long for them, actually. Crave them. I surely would. I am lucky - SO lucky - to have a man that loves me like he does.
They all mean that my true love is with me. Healthy and alive.
I will bet you that there are millions of widows and widowers who would give ANYTHING to be able to wake up to those things that once annoyed them a bit about the one they loved.
Suddenly, my tasks no longer were a burden. I smiled and then wiped down the mirror again. Then I ran to my husband and gave him a hug.
That is my lesson of the day!
