She awoke to the smell of coffee and chicken nuggets. Not the best combination she’d ever smelled. Rolling over she looked out toward the kitchen and could see her adult son cooking a frozen dinner. “Ugh…”, she thought “What time is it?”
She rolled over to the side table and pushed the power button on her laptop. It flickered on from its sleepy state and the time said 4 pm. “WOW! I guess I needed the sleep” said her little inner voice.
Still looking at her computer she checked her Facebook and other social sites, then she noticed her Skype had a number bouncing on it, meaning she had a message. She opened her Skype window and saw it was from her husband, the sweetest man in the world.
The message read, “Good morning beautiful. Happy Valentines day. I love you so very much. You are everything that is good in this world to me. You are my happy thought day in and day out.” What a beautiful way to start the day.
Maybe every time she smells chicken nuggets or coffee, she’ll see these words again.
