Home late from work


I got home late from work tired and worn out from a bad day at the office trying to sort out the mistakes of others.

The meal was ready for me and we ate together as if she had guessed what time I would arrive.

She insisted I sit down as she did the dishes as I relaxed in my chair almost ready for bed when she called out "Could you take the trash out dear, they coming tomorrow."

I did as I was told and saw the beautiful starry sky of the still dark placid evening and realized how much I had been blessed.

I heard an owl hoot and the rustle of other creatures of the night as I made my way back inside.

With the dishwasher stacked and the lights turned low my wife was now waiting for me in bed for our after dinner treat, so how could I refuse?

  1. :). What a lovely little story...
    Sometimes the thing we need most is an opportunity to slow down and see that we really lack for nothing.

  6. I really like the picture!! And the story is quite lovely as well :)
    There hopefully is always a moment, like taking out the trash, that serves as a thing to jolt us out of our routines of life so that we take the time to look up...or around or right beside us and see all that we really have.

  7. stopping/stepping away from the routine, surely is a good thing, your story presents this idea in a way that makes it seem, if not easy, then possible which surely is a good thing
