In addition to the wonderful career, I have found the love of my life. It is difficult to portray the feelings I have for her, but there are some simple acts that show how we feel for one another. Simple words of affection. Small gifts on occasion. All the little, wonderful things that seem to make my world turn.
For one week out of every month,
I drink my coffee cold.
My wife leaves for work two hours before me.
And on these mornings, I am always thankful.
Not because I wake up having the whole bed to myself,
and not because it’s easier to get up without waking her,
but because she loves me enough
to leave me some coffee in the pot.
