A day that you will feel specially loved
mine have all been different.
In the past there was candy, flowers,
a special piece of jewelery,
delicious meals at top of the line
restaurants, dances at the country club
and even a couple of trips.
Simple times at home
with handmade cards from
Many still in my old scrapbooks
Returning from errands yesterday
on a cold day. Did not want to leave
Callie in utility room and knew it would
be a short trip, so I left her
outside with access to her pillow
on the screen porch.
Turning into the long gravel road
cold and misty rain
and there she was
sitting in the middle of the field
on the cold damp earth
waiting for me.
She spots me and takes off running
and practically leaping in the air.
Now when an animal or human
waits for you
lying on the cold damp ground
in the misty rain
that is love....
I am doing housework
neglected for almost 3 weeks
because of surgery.
At this moment in this small cottage
doing household chores.
I feel loved
No need of flowers, cards, candy,
entertainment or special gifts.
The gift of peace in my heartt
and Miss Callie
