He's the Cream in My Coffee

Yesterday was starting to become one of those days for me when I let the little things get to me. Nothing big, just the busyness of life with the antics of a grumpy three year old thrown in. But the best part started with a text to my lineman. He was at work and texts through the day are a highlight but this one was filled more with things like how I was going to implode. No drama there at all on my part.
I was just sitting in my room when I then received this text, "Sorry wish I was there to help you." and then the best part that just melted me, "We need to make the best of what we have. Life is good. Got healthy kids, food, a roof and a job. And the best of all each other!" It just stopped me in my tracks and I just felt this wonderful mellowing. He was right. Snap out of it Elaine. I responded with, "How did I ever land a guy like you?" and he of course said, "Just lucky I guess." Lucky for sure. He is the cream in my coffee. He makes life   
more mellow and since I use flavored fattening creamers, he makes life sweeter too. Thanks honey!!
