It’s Valentines Day, it’s my wife’s birthday. My first thought is how lucky I am that Timberly has been with me almost 33 years. I’m thinking of how quickly time fleets by and little glimpses of the past play like a film. Closing my eyes I can see her first birthday with me, she was 19. My thoughts morph beyond birthdays, they intersect with having our sons, from birth to playing with chalk on the sidewalk yesterday to being grown, married and having a life of their own. The clips are like a menagerie sitting on a shelf. Today is Timberly’s Day, that’s what Valentines and Birthday are for her in our home. The second cup of coffee is not quite, but is almost as good as the first. The longer I sit the deeper the trance becomes, it’s going to be a busy day. In a sequence of events I see parts of the day play out. It is crisp and cool outside. That, with the coffee has my eyes open to a wonderful, fun-filled day of new memory clips to add to my menagerie. Happy Birthday my sweets, this cup’s for you!
