Joe and I sat on the lakefront a few weeks ago, watching the boats going by and talking about everything and nothing. We sat there for the longest time, just having a nice chat--and then realized that we were probably being rude to the kids and headed back to the picnic blanket.
"Gees, could you two not sit together?" was Em's comment and we approached them.
And I had no idea what she was talking about until she pointed out on the camera the distance between us as we sat.
Really? Does 2 feet really make us "distant" in their minds? And here we were, thinking how nice it was to sit together on the shoreline.
So I tried explaining that it was hot out there and I didn't want to stick to Dad and after 24 years of marriage, you don't always have to sit on each other's laps in order to show your love. She didn't get it and I don't expect she will for a very long time.
Sometimes love is some air space on a hot day in the sun, you know?
