February 15, 2012 – Blessed

She slid the maple side table out into the living room, covered it with a red tablecloth and set the table.  The table was arranged beautifully and deliberately like a flower arrangement.  Small clear votives embraced tiny tea lights and the ornately cracked glasses containing the blood-colored wine stood proudly boasting in the firelight.  Steak cooked perfectly, salad, potatoes.   Appetizers were served with wine before the meal and champagne with homemade chocolate-dipped strawberries for dessert.  Music floated through the room adding to the mood.   And a card that made me cry, sob actually. Why?  Because every day is like this with her.  Every day is Valentine’s Day.
