Made Me Smile

Today, for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, I chose this prompt:

5.) Something that made you smile this week.

Last Friday, Valentine’s Day, Motor Man and I had breakfast together at home, and he left to work at the shop for awhile.  Within an hour, I heard the back door open and close and knew that he had come back home.

I was at the opposite end of our (long) hallway, and wondered if something was wrong, since he hadn’t planned to be back home so soon. When I looked around the corner, this is what I saw:

My sweetie, in his work clothes, clutching a dozen red roses in one hand and a Valentine card in the other.  I’m so glad the camera was within easy reach, so I could have a photo as a reminder of the smile this brought.

I posted this picture as my status on Facebook Saturday, and my sister, June’s, comment gave me another smile: “And love walks in….”.

    Made me smile too. Gonna see if I can make somebody smile today.

  9. …And I always thought Richard Gere going up the elevator with a single rose for his ‘wife’ in “Shall We Dance” was the most handsome I’d ever seen. MM gives him a run for his money!!! SO SWEET!

  15. … & love walked in … good one ! 😉

  16. Awww, I love that! Especially because you really weren’t expecting anything and he just thought it up all on his own. Very sweet!

  17. Didn’t get a notice of your blog posting today – which I thought was a bit weird so I tried the link anyway and HERE YOU ARE! MM looks like he’s mighty proud to bring those pretty roses to you – I got some as well and I’m “nursing them along” to keep them as long as possible!!
