Call Of Tranquility

Updated on November 8, 2015

Sweet Music To My Ears

After a busy day at work

I head home

Arriving safe

I am rejuvinated by a nice hot shower

Just as I am toweling dry

I can hear the familiar sound

I pick up the phone

My wife on the other end

Asking how was my day ?

How was my ride home ?

Did I eat yet ?

I also ask how was her day ?

How she is feeling ?

She has been shaking a cold

Then after a few minutes we hang up the phone

Most of the time we travel together

Occasionally we have to go our separate ways

Today is one of those days

My wife works for another two hours before she leaves work

It may sound silly to most people

We never take for granted all our trips in our car

We drive minimum of three hours a day

We have seen accidents and fatalities

Praying for safety and peace

So we may get to work and home daily

Even the simplest of days is a blessing

I think most people think being alive is a given

In life there are no guarantees

We both have good jobs and great health

My wife's lovable nature and concern

Touches me deeply

I am more laid back and relaxed

Believing today will go smooth

There is no reason it shouldn't

I don't figure in the unexpected

I am busy enjoying the moment

My wife is more concerned about the what if

Our two personalities clash

Not a bad thing

It keeps our love fresh

She checks up on me more than I check up on her

The bottom line

We make it work

      Great when two people look after each other and the relationship melds.

      Sees that nothing gets you down. You have the right disposition with which to respond to the call of tranquility. Great attitude!
