Several have asked and many probably have wondered.
Last Wednesday, I asked Wanda if there was anything that I did that bothered her or annoyed her. She couldn't really think of anything and then mentioned that the closest thing to bothering her was when I get on the cell phone too long.
I told her that there wasn't really anything that I could think of that she did which bothered me at this point.
Later that evening after coming home from Wednesday night church, I walked into the house and noticed that she was heading toward the back of the house. I went to my laptop thinking that this would be a could time to make a quick check on emails and write a moment.
After a few moments, she returned to our family room next to the kitchen table where I was typing, but I didn't really notice or stop work on the computer.
After a while of working, I noticed that the room was rather quiet and maybe had a little frostiness and chill settling in. It had gotten quiet, too quiet even for two people.
I should not have ignored her and kept my nose in the computer. After all, we are still on the honeymoon.
So, I got up and walked over to where she was sitting with her back to me in the recliner and got real close to her face.
Yes, it was definitely cool and getting frostier by the moment. She hadn't said anything or acted out of the way, but it was a little cooler.
I smiled, got closer, and kissed her on the lips.
"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have gotten on the computer and forgotten you," I said.
The kiss warmed the room and all was well.
As I stepped back I asked, "Do you like the flowers I bought you today?"
"Yes," Wanda sweetly responded.
Preventive maintenance cures many problems before they start.
I wonder what our first argument will be about?
I know that it is okay to work on laptops and talk on cell phones and so does Wanda, but I wonder how many marriages have been long frosted over by too much time spent in the wrong places.
