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?
