My husband had been gone for over three weeks, on a business trip. It was a long time for us since we had only been married for six months. By the time he got back, I was so glad to see him that I ran right into his arms. I forgot that it was snowing and near zero. When he wrapped his arms around me, I began to shiver and laughed while telling him to go over by the fireplace. He took off his coat and settled on the sofa in front of the fireplace while telling me that whatever I was cooking, smelled delicious. He loved shrimp alfredo and he was thrilled when I served him in front of the fireplace. I wanted to sit in front of the fireplace and watch a movie with him. I just wanted to cuddle up and relax and listen to him talking. He began to tell me about his trip down south. As cold and snowy as it was at home, the weather down there had been hot and humid. He said that wasn’t the worst. The air conditioning system in the meeting center had broken. We were laughing about this and he said he was glad to come home and be able to enjoy the fireplace. I asked if that was all he was enjoying, and he just smiled. I’m glad we have the fireplace because it saves us a lot of money on our energy bills. Our furnace doesn’t work overtime in an effort to keep the house warm,because of the fireplace.
