Steal Me Away

Jim asked me to be ready to "go" at 3:00 on Friday.  He didn't have to ask me twice.  All I knew is I needed my toothbrush and my bathing suit.  That's all I needed to know.  Smile.

He picked me up from work at 3:00 sharp!  I was ready!  As we pulled out of the parking lot he said "Behind my seat is a gift bag for you".  Smile.

The bag was full of goodies, including a book to read, some snacks, some flowers, a lilac candle, a new magazine, and three greeting cards labeled with the time I was to open them.  Smile. 

We drove to Three Forks and made a stop for an Almond Bear Claw at Wheat Montana.  Smile.

We drove another hour or so, talking, sharing, tearing down walls.  Smile.

We arrived at our destination, here where a Romance Package was awaiting. Smile.

We got in the pool and talked more, and tore down more walls, and cried, and soaked and relaxed.  Smile.

We split a bison burger for dinner.  Then ordered our Romance Package Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

We smiled some more.

Early in the morning we slipped back into our bathing suits, and headed to the pool to watch the sunrise.  Smile.

We then ordered our Romance Package breakfast in bed.  Smile.

We drove back home, both standing out from behind our walls.  Smile.

Your recent posting made me smile...a lot. I'm so thankful God brought us together. I'm looking forward to growing old with you. You've captured my heart once again.

I love you. I like you. Forever.

Your one and only,

Jim
