Making Up truly is an art form. Very often it is the best part of an “animated” discussion. My hubby and I have not been seeing eye to eye on a very emotional issue. We try not to go to bed angry but failed on this occasion. Of course our bad moods were waiting by the bedside to be picked up and carried throughout the day. This was only made worse because my DH is facing a layoff in the coming months.

At the end of the day I had run out to my stress relief, art lessons, and did not return home until Bill had gone to bed. I walked into the kitchen expecting a mess but found a pristine kitchen with flowers on the counter. What made this all the more special was the note in front of the vase. My non-lyrical mate had decided to write me a clever poem that read, “Roses are Red, And I know I am stressed, I want you to know, you’re still the BEST! S.H.M.I.L.Y. I love you.” Now how could I stay mad after that <grin>. What we don’t realize is that the little things we do make the biggest impression. In this case a dozen roses and candy would not have cut it. It was a token done out of character that melted my heart.
