Psalm 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Me and Mike, near Porthcawl, Wales July 2017
It was a cool day, windy and a few showers off an on for most of the day. I got up early to prepare a charcuterie board for a dinner party we were attending this evening. Mike slept until almost 11.
After he was up and moving about, I went back to the kitchen to continue on my board. It was quite tasty, and added to the overall dinner experience. We were happy to be out with friends. The conversation was good, though Mike didn’t talk much; he mostly sat and smiled and listened to what was going on.
After we got back to the house, Mike helped me unload the car and put things away. He sat on the sofa and I got his evening meds for him. He sort of dozed off a little, and when I told him it was time for bed, he said ‘Give me a break!’ I smiled and told him, “You may not realize it, but I give you lots of breaks, all the time.” He told me good night, and headed to his room.
I went to the master bedroom and as I getting ready to climb into bed, Mike came in and said, “I have told you before, but you should really know how much I appreciate all you do for me, and I love you!” This is so special and sweet – especially due to the fact he usually doesn’t remember to even say good night! Even when I get frustrated, I know I am truly blessed.
