Trust could be a quality that causes you to love..Right?
Sitting in a dark restaurant enjoying a meal with the person you love, when she says “Hey try this”, you turn your head and open your mouth totally trusting her choice only to get a mouthful of pea salad, even after you had told her repeatedly that you hate peas, her explanation is something to the effect of, “I really thought you may like pea salad, I seriously didn’t think you hated peas that bad”, I suppose my reaction may have appeared over exaggerated, the waitress thought the gagging was unnecessary, and we may not be welcome in that restaurant again, but to this day I still hate peas.
Do I trust her, yes I do but when it comes to food and before opening my mouth after hearing “Hey try this” I choose to look at the spoon, candlelight dinners are nice but pea salad is easier to spot with the lights on.
Unexpected surprises in your daily life could be another..Right?
In the shower, all soaped up and really enjoying the relaxing feel of the hot water spraying on my body, you know how good this feels, but what do you feel when you hear the bathroom door open and hear your loved ones voice whisper “Honey, what are you doing” and to your surprise you feel an entire pitcher of ice water flying over the top of the shower door completely erasing the feel of the hot water.
Did I smile and say “Good one honey” or did I say words I didn’t know I knew? Neither it was all of a sudden an episode reminiscent of Ray Stevens song The Streak as I jumped from the shower and chased her all the way through the house, she was going out the front door when I caught her and carried her back to the shower which was still running full blast, Cindy fully clothed and still holding an empty ice water pitcher joined me in the shower.
Laughter and surprises are part of love, the surprise of cold water may not give you a warm feeling in your heart, and getting your clothes washed while you are wearing them may not either, but laughing about both years later definitely does.
Not being able to tell what your gut is saying, may tell you something.
That warm gooey feeling in the pit of your stomach that you can't differentiate whether it’s one of Cupids arrows or the flu, the one you feel while you are sitting and waiting for the phone to ring, she was supposed to call you back but the phone does not ring, you don’t want to seem desperate because she did say that she would return your call, but it’s been hours and the phone still hasn’t rang.
Giving up, I called her number to leave a message that I was turning in for the night, she answered asking why I had not answered the phone as she had been calling all night long, now it was all of a sudden my fault, Thanks to the AT&T Analog Network of the time, my cell phone was not receiving calls, we sat and talked until the batteries died and have not needed a phone to talk with each other since, I guess it wasn’t the flu, because we are still talking.
My best suggestion about Love is to not question it, Love does not need a reason nor does it need an explanation, when you are in love you will just know it..no questions asked.
Happy Valentines Day.
