How I Know He Loves Me

He stands behind me waiting patiently as I gird my loins to go up the steps with my crutches, as I'm now incredibly afraid of falling.

He stands in front of me to encourage me and catch me as I go down those same steps.

He braces me with one arm and holds the shower sprayer with the other so that I may lean over the tub to wash my hair.

He brings me ice water and ice for my swollen knee, coffee in the morning, breakfast/lunch/dinner to my "throne" on the couch and anything else I request.

He feeds the kitten and cleans her litter box.

He wired cable into the guest bedroom so I could get a break from my mother's cigarettes and her addiction to TCM 1940's movies.

He loads me into the truck when he drives to where the rig is being stored to pick up more "stuff" so I can get some fresh air and watch the young foals in the pasture because he knows I love horses.

He surprises me with Hostess cupcakes, a chocolate addiction of mine.

And that's the short list...

Lucky man and woman to have each other.

I hope you're feeling better soon, and that the rest of your recovery goes well.
