I’m so glad you’re here

April 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Just before dinner yesterday evening I walked over to visit a neighbor and express my downright contrition about a mistake I made via e-mail.  She and her husband invited me in, and we chatted while they fed their toddler dinner and cooked a meal of their own.

About an hour later, I sat down at home and reported the results of the visit.  They accepted my apology graciously, and invited us to dinner on Sunday.  “And they talked to me while they were feeding their baby and cooking dinner.”  All at the same time.  “Did I do that?”

Matt reported I had.  Now in the evenings I just mostly stand in the kitchen and let Matt do most of the work.  At least I’m up there; for the longest time I couldn’t stand to be upstairs at all while he cooked.

“In fact,” he added, “Some of our best conversations were when we were cooking dinner.”

I padded off to the kitchen to stare at the counter and figure out how I would serve myself dinner, now cold.

He sent Carmen and David off to get ready to go shopping, and gave me a big hug.  “I’m so glad you’re here,” he said, then grabbed his wallet and walked out.
