He gazed at me with his big brown eyes & cocked one eyebrow in question as he reached across the dinner table for my hand.

The instant we touched, I felt electrified; my breath caught in my chest & my heart skipped a beat.

The other diners around us faded into the background; the clanking of silverware on china & the murmur of other conversations muted.

As usual, my brain is full & chaotic. BUT, I am finding it highly therapeutic to make sure to list my thankfuls each weekend. . . Habitual Thankfuls Read the rest of this entry »
